When I saw the film Gangster I was amazed at how wonderful it was. The acting was brilliant and the story line was good. It is not your average Karan Johar love movie. It is wonderful the way they act and the feeling they all put into it. The ending was killer and it made the movie. Unlike a lot of other movies that I have seen, this movie makes you feel for the characters. When they are in pain it's like you are in pain. If you sometimes cry in movies get a tissue box. This movie had great actors in it and they all showed a lot of emotion. This film was truly a beautiful film. The upcoming movie Woh Lamhe stars two of the main actors that were in this movie. I really hope you find this comment useful and watch the movie.
