Background & Story

After directing two National Award winning films John & Jane and Miss Lovely, Director Ashim Ahluwalia is now back with a crime film on the life of one of India’s most dreaded gangsters, Arun GawliDaddy stars Arjun Rampal in the lead, who is often criticised for his acting skills. This time, however, the actor is going to shut all the critics up with his powerful presence and acting chops as is evident from the hard hitting trailer.

Set in the backdrop of Mumbai in the 1970s, when the underworld business was at its peak, Daddy’s story begins from the initial days of the B.R.A. gang from where Arun Gawli’s rise of power began. It chronicles the tale of a milkman-turned-mobster-turned-politician-turned-convict over a span of four decades. The film will be a powerful story about a man of short stature assuming mass appeal in his immediate vicinity; the infamous Dagdi Chawl in Mumbai. Daddy, as he was lovingly called by the residents, Arun Gawli is often compared to Robinhood.

The film, however, promises not to glorify the gangster but show a real picture of the underworld. With Farhan Akhtar doing a cameo as Dawood Ibrahim, we are sure the film is going to be a cinematic treat.

What to Expect

With Arjun Rampal having put a great deal of effort into getting into the character's skin, this is going to be a path breaking film for the actor’s career. With his perfect Marathi accent and his surprising physical transformation, this edgy and intense character will surely be impressive.

Also, Bollywood has not seen such a biopic for the longest time now. Considering our voyeuristic tendencies, especially with respect to the life of gangsters and celebrities, Daddy is going to be one hell of an experience.

Till then, why don't you checkout the trailer once again.
