Storyline

At the behest of Mahesh Verma, Shanta Prasad alias Abba, recruits Ghulam-E-Musthafa, a gangster and hit-man to carry out their nefarious activities. When Dayanand Dixit refuses to sell his property to Verma, Ghulam is asked to move into their house, live with them, and eventually force them to leave. Dayanand and his wife, Bhagyalaxmi, are shocked at this and initially cannot accept a Muslim male to live together with them and eat from their utensils. To make matters worse, Dayanand loses his job, his son, Vikram, is unable to secure admission in any college, and their daughter, Vidya, is unable to get anyone to marry her. Faced with these obstacles, the Dixit family must now arrive at a compromise with Ghulam and his masters - or else be shunned by the rest of the community - leaving Vikram uneducated and Vidya unmarried for life.

Nana in one of his best
21 October 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is one of Nana's best films ever. If you like Nana Patekar then you should not miss GEM.

The story is about a hit-man who goes to any lengths to please his superiors, but soon finds that his activities have begun to affect his near and dear ones too, and he probably will have to change for the better.

The acting on Nana's art is the most outstanding thing - no one beats him really. The songs are good but all have a minor scale tone in them, the storyline is good, some action scenes are cool, and so are Nana's dialogs.

Hard to find a movie like this nowadays
