There are two alternate endings. The theatrical/DVD version ends after Shiva's father salutes him and freeze frames with Shiva smiling, with the song 'Hum Na Satje Te' playing in the background. The UK TV version which was broadcast on ITV in 1994 follows on from the theatrical version and ends with Shiva's father giving a profile report of Shiva to the police commissioner. He explains that Shiva can no longer be an Inspector because he is a criminal. The end shot has Shiva's father staring at the photo of his son being stuck on to a criminal wall, with the song 'Hum Na Satje Te' in the background. See more »
Gardish is a relief from the usual Bollywood masala movies where the plot is just an excuse for the hero to take on the bad guys and beat them black and blue. This film has a strong plot, good music, slick editing and good cinematography.
The story revolves around Shiva (Jackie Shroff) whose father's (Amrish Puri)dream is to see him become a police officer. However, circumstances compel Shiva to cross paths with a local thug Billa Jilani (Mukesh Rishi). One day while Billa beats up Shiva's father, Shiva decides to take matters into his own hands and beats up Billa severely, sending him to the hospital. While in the hospital, Billa contemplates taking revenge against Shiva and once he gets out of the hospital, he begins to terrorize the whole village and Shiva's family. Will Shiva take a stand against Billa or will he act according to his father's principles, putting his dreams of becoming a police officer to the fore?
The story is very well told and Priyadarshan did a really good job of keeping the viewer involved. I didn't know that Priyadarshan can direct an action film and that too with a good story and acting.
Jackie Shroff unquestionably gives the best performance of his career after Parinda. He proves that he is a director's actor and Priyadarshan succeeds in bringing the best out of him. Amrish Puri is excellent as Jackie's confused father and he proves yet again that he can carry off not just the negative but also the positive roles with aplomb. He has very large, expressive eyes conveying anger, sadness and fear painstakingly. Dimple Kapadia is also good as the prostitute and her last scene is heart wrenching. Raj Babbar succeeds in creating an impression in just a guest appearance.
Overall, Gardish is a good and thoughtful film. If you like meaningful cinemas, then this movie is for you to watch.
