The gangster Bulla (Mukesh Rishi) becomes the crime lord of Mumbai after killing his rival Lamboo Aata (Ishrat Ali). However, when his right hand man Kala Shetty (Rami Reddy) is arrested by police due to the intervention of a coolie and a good samaritan Shankar (Mithun Chakraborty), Bulla swears revenge. He manages to trap Shankar's sister Geeta (Sapna) into a sham marriage with Gulshan (Gulshan Rana) who is a scamster working for the pimp Lucky Chikna (Razak Khan). Bulla's younger brother Chutiya (Shakti Kapoor), who has long been impotent, becomes sex-crazed under the influence of London-imported pills provided by his loving elder brother and proceeds to brutally rape Geeta and ends up killing her. When Shankar's policeman father is also killed by the corrupt Inspector Kale (Rana Jung Bahadur), Shankar swears that he will kill Bulla, Chutiya, their ally Potey (Mohan Joshi) and the rest of their entourage within ten days.

Cult movie of the millennium
20 October 2011 | by sangamitrasinghSee all my reviews

"Gunda", One of my all time favorites, stress buster, with amazing storyline, "bole sachmuch deeemag ki ghanti bajegi" Boss, "ek se ek dialogues", and amazing costumes, and choreography. The naming convention of each character(ex:Lambu Aatta,Bachubhai Bhigona,Bulla,Natte,Ibu Hatela,Pote, Chuttiya ) will make you sit and think as to what can be better names than this.

Mithun as always rocks, and looks well chiseled with little hanging tummy yet sober and a decent GUNDA.You will fall in love with him , trust me head over heals not forget to mention it is better than his other all time classics "Maa kasam", "Cheetah (this is again my all time favorite)" Barood and "Chandaal", the must collections in your video library.

Every dialogue by Mithun is memorable and sure all of them are punchlines for the generations to come, I am sure I am not just the only one who is an ardent fan of this ultimate SAGA, you will sure have tears of happiness while watching this movie, and it is the ZENITH for any movie standard.

Happy watching.....
