A rare good film
15 June 2013 | by akshay-ak-kumarSee all my reviews

Just finished watching Gafla and I call it a rare good film. Because its very good in spite of an unknown star cast and no songs & dance which is a mandatory in Hindi films.

The strength of the movie is the writing and if anyone wants to understand stock markets .....this is a must watch.

Loosely based on the life of the 'Big Bull' Harshad Mehta, the shows the rise and fall of a man who changed the rules of the game in the early 90s.

There is not a moment when the movie becomes boring in spite of the slow pace.

The performances are very good and the movie also gives some teachings abt life !
