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.”
