What’s New: A movie filled with ‘Gun’ jokes without getting way too vulgar.
Popcorn Refill: Interval
Story: Guddu, the bihari in Kolkata, is true-blue play boy. Be it a college student or a housewife, no one has been able to evade from his charm. However, his world turns upside down when his ‘Gun’ turns into gold. What follows is his search to find out the truth behind this golden miracle and his journey to get it back to normal.
While his previous outing Bhaag Johnny’s concept was good, it failed to any wonders for him. However, with Guddu Ki Gun, Kunal Khemu can surely raise his hopes. Playing the melodramatic playboy comes naturally to him, be it ‘Go Goa Gone’ or now this; no one can play such roles better than him. Kunal has always had a brilliant comic timing. Mix that with the Bihari accent, and he becomes a treat to watch!
You may not enter the cinema halls to watch him, but you would surely leave hoping to see him again in more of such amazing and hilarious roles. Yes, I am speaking about Sumeet Vyas. He is absolutely brilliant and a delight to watch. Even though he may be termed as the supporting hero, his performance will make you say- “he is the parallel lead in the film”. And yes, his inspiring speech to Kunal, a few minutes before the climax, will leave you stunned as to how this man changes his shade from being comical to serious yet looks natural and believable.
Payel Sarkar does a commendable job as the sweet and simple girl. Aparna Sharma looks gorgeous and does a decent job in the little role she has got.
Brijendra Kala is at his usual comic best.
Direction: Making a film on a man’s ‘Gun’ is in itself a huge task, ensuring it doesn’t cross the line or get vulgar. However directors Sheershak Anand and Shantanu Ray Chhibber make that look like an easy task. From funny and filmy liners to the hilarious Mughal-E-Azam climax, the movie doesn’t have a single dull moment. They very well succeed in showing Guddu’s playboy-tales, his struggle to cope with his ‘Golden Gun’ and his friendship with Laddoo without leaving any story incomplete.
Combo On Offer: Drama + Humor
Verdict: We give the movie CLAPS for being a complete comic caper with the message that beauty lies skin-deep!
