One of Bhatt's Best films
17 January 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Usually people say Bhatt films have lot of sex, hit music, titillation and no story But this film and some more proved them wrong Actually that 4 things suit Yashraj films more

Gangster is one of the best films from Vishesh films

The story sounds complicated but the director and screenplay writers make the film one experience to cherish

The love story between Shiny- Kangana, Kangana suddenly falling for Emraan and then her confusion whom to choose and the betrayal

All is handled very well by Anurag Basu

The emotional breakdown of Shiny and the climax is one of the best written scenes

Anurag Basu gives his best work so far Music(Pritam) was superb, especially Ya Ali, Bheegi Bheegi, Tu Hi Meri Cinematography made the film more appealing

Performances Kangana was one of today's rare heroines, she made her debut in such a spectacular way that all remained stunned and she earned a big name with this film, except her diction and her shouting at places

Shiny Ahuja was amazing in his role and performed brilliantly He got least dialogs but did a great job with expressions His emotional breakdown towards the end is one of the best part of the film

Emraan Hashmi surprised, he gave a restrained performance and didn't overact or make funny expressions even once as he normally does

Gulshan Grover got a wonderful role and he did a great job despite being a short role
