CELEBRITIES, WHO WATCHED THE FILM ON WEDNESDAY BEFORE ITS OFFICIAL RELEASE ON FRIDAY, LOVED HOW CLOSE THE FILM CAME TO PERFECTLY NARRATING THE STORY OF GAWLI.
Aspecial screening of actor-producer, Arjun Rampal’s Daddy — a grittythriller based on the life of gangster-politician Arun Gawli, was held in Delhi on Wednesday. The actor, who was in the Capital for the film’s promotions, held a special screening of his film for his close friends and family.
A source reveals, “Daddy is the story of notorious criminal — Gawli who ruled the underworld in Mumbai during the late 1980s and early ’90s. Director Ashim Ahluwalia has managed to bring the story alive on the big screen by fleshing out the protagonist with minimum fuss. Arjun’s performance as Daddy not only moved the audience but also left behind a deep impression on their minds.”
Celebrities, who watched the film on Wednesday before its official release on Friday, loved how close the film came to perfectly narrating the story of Gawli. Post the screening of the film actor, Nafisa Ali says, “The movie has certainly brought about a rethink and a relook at this wonderful, colourful gangster character, who had the will of the people that brought him into power in his mind. But, in the end he’s still in jail so it’s an important message. Arjun has done a phenomenal job. It’s a very serious and dark role. The character is very carefully handled, and therefore, it comes to life on screen.”
Designer Raghavendra Rathore, who was also present at the screening says, “Arjun’s persona and the character portrayal in the movie is extremely realistic.”
