Few movies reach iconic proportion that Gunda (1998) commands. Movie is apt commentary on movie making of its time and its portrayal of characters and storyline in unparalleled. With 8.4 out of 10 rating on IMDB (don't miss comments), its fan don't tire of exhorting its virtues. Some samples:

Mihun's tryst with greatness. The defining moment of Indian Cinema. This movie is a must watch for anyone who speaks Hindi. More inspiring than Shawshank, with the thrill of Die Hard. Mithun manages to pack another powerful performance, only this time it is impossible to avoid rolling on the floor. And the dialogues, well, they will go down in history as adages.

no words can define this wonderful movie. Its direction, music, acting are perfect to the core. Be it its couplet laced dialogues or creative storyline or the mind-blowing performances by the greatest stalwarts of Bollywood...it is a movie worth infinite viewing. Every time you see it, you find a new meaning to the dialogues, a new dimension to the portrayal, a new perspective for research. Everyone who has watched the movie has felt an intellectual upliftment.

truly a cinematic masterpiece, gunda propels the viewer through a world of pony tailed gender confused rapists, villains spouting rhyme, prostitutes suspended in mid air and heroines with fluctuating vital statistics

Somethings that this movie portrays have never been shown before nor will be shown in future. You'd laugh till you cry when you watch this. Critics often ask unwarranted question: was laughter intended by the director or unintentional outcome? To those snobbish folks one can only say: lighten up!

There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who have seen “Gunda”. And those who shall see it — GreatBong
