Gangster has all the ingredients that a film about blood and betrayal should ideally have:

1. Blood
2. Betrayal
3. Consequently, more blood, and
4. Boredom

The course of events don't necessarily follow that order. Try sticking that last one in between, all around, over and under the others.

Gangster – A Love Story is surprisingly about a girl. Now she's no ordinary girl - this one has dreams. Dreams of a house, dreams of a family, dreams of dal-roti, dreams of paneer-pakoda, dreams of... you get the point. And where else to find all these, than in the arms of a gangster?

The movie starts off literally with a bang, as you witness an adrenaline-packed shootout between a man and a woman. The two are subsequently wheeled off in stretchers, and what ensues is the narration of the buildup to this scene, in a series of flashbacks.

Simran (Kangna Ranaut) is in love with a gangster Daya (Shiny Ahuja), and his treacherous trades have led him to flee the country along with Simran. He leaves her cooped up in an apartment in Seoul, while he goes about globe-trotting "earning his living".

Now you would think Simran's content since she's got most of her dreams fulfilled. But if that were the case, we'd probably be describing the rolling credits by now. No such luck. Loneliness and despair lead Simran to a life of alcoholism, and she doesn't stop till the last drop, literally. This includes scenes where she's rummaging through kachra dabbas on the road, and finally, out of sheer desperation, seeks refuge in the arms of Akash (Emraan Hashmi).

Now Akash is a bar singer in an Indian restaurant at Seoul. And he's soon besotted by our very drunk Simran. What follows is a torrid love affair between the two, and the "serial-kisser" delivers mush to your doorstep, promising the very same things that Daya did to her.

Once again, we would've loved to see credits rolling, but life, as it tends to be, isn't that generous. Daya soon stumbles upon the two of them, and after a promising scene of him trying to kill Akash, unfortunately all that happens is that our Gangster decides to "go good" on us. His jealousy actually drives him to a life of honesty so that he can win Simran's affection back.

In the midst of all this, Simran finds out she's pregnant with Akash's baby. Life is just great, isn't it? Simran's, we mean, not yours.

Now Simran has to make the eternal decision: does she run away with her baby's daddy and risk getting kille

Great review Kavita,

Its very humorous. After all thats what people read reviews for, right. But I agree with Kiran's review, it was a great work by all the artists. It could be that the paneer-pakoda spoiled the movie.

i dont know what's the problem with the reviewer...this is a love story, not a gangster movie. it is very well directed and the actors have performed creditably too. Emraan seems to mature with every movie. Shiny is outstanding and the heroine Kangna doesnt seem like a newbie! music is ofcourse gr8 as in any Bhatt production, but the 4 songs do not interfere in the story's progress. this might be another hit for Bhatt but it is totally unlike the usual Emraan film - no skin n sleaze. the only well shot love scene is very tender n totally "un-vulgar". No typical chases and "action" scenes either.
