Finally, after all the hype and a tedious wait, Aashiq Abu’s Gangster, starring Mammootty, came out today to eager fans around the world and the reviews are looking good so far.
Megastar Mammootty plays the character of underworld don, Akbar Ali Khan, to perfection with the supporting cast pulling their weight as well.
The stylishly taken movie has all the essential aspects including suspense, action and is visually unique thanks to the amazing cinematography by Alby and editing by Saiju Sreedharan.
Aashiq posted his thanks today to his ‘Gangster’ friends for all their hard work.
The movie released in 190+ screens in India alone to packed houses. Prithviraj’s 7th Day being postponed for release till tomorrow meant that Gangster had virtually no competition in Mollywood and fans, apparently, were ready to pay any price for a ticket.
The first response from the day’s enthusiastic crowd gives the movie positive reviews and proclaims it ‘definitely worth a watch’. The film is also being described as nail bitingly tense and directed with vision.
It seems that all the pre release, promotional gimmicks have paid off and Gangster, which was polled as the ‘Most Awaited Film of 2014’ in Malayalam, is here to stay and maybe set the tone – box office wise- for the rest of the year for Mollywood.
