This one can be easily termed as a classic. And it shows under classics on Amazon. I tried to download and speed-read but I guess there wasn’t enough time. I was expecting The Great Gatsby to release only next week. I guess I need to be a bit more cued in. But I must say that, 10 minutes into the movie, I thought it was actually true to the book – because that is all I could read before walking into the movie.

Those familiar with my writing, would know that I have the softest of spots for this genre of cinema. It takes a lot to make a quality animation movie. And the least obvious aspect is probably the quality of animation. I say that because in this day and age, with the amount of technology that one has access to, anyone can come up with animation of reasonable quality.

Aurangzeb was known for his resoluteness towards one goal and one goal only – that of taking the empire from his father. He went to the extent of jailing his own father for no apparent reason other than greed for the throne. That, is the apparent logic for this thriller based out of Gurgaon that shows the deep rooted nexus between politicians, gang lords (mafia) and cops.
Remember what I always say about reading the book before you watch the movie? Well this time around, turns out, it doesn’t matter. Because the book is ever so slightly evolved and leaves a little too much to your imagination. The movie on the other hand actually unravels the mystery of the book into a simpler, understandable version to us.

“Everyone gets big. Only a few grow up”. If you think that there is any pun intended in this line that is part of the trailer, wait till you watch Gippi. The movie starts off with a 14 year old girl who says, “Tere aur bhi bade ho gaye? Mere toh ab tak chhote chhote samose jaise hain” (Yours have grown bigger? Mine are still small like little samosas) – I am sure that you know what “yours and mine” mean.
