The teaser opens with the formation of Bangladesh back in 1971. “Lakirein bahut ajeeb hoti hain. Khaal pe khich jaaein toh khoon nikaal deti hain, aur zameen par khich jaaein toh sarhadein bana deti hain,” the voiceover by Irrfan Khan tells us.
From the exodus of refugees that pour into India from Bangladesh emerge two orphan kids and inseparable friends, Bikram and Bala. To eke out a living, the two waifs become gun couriers. From gunrunners, they go on to become coal bandits robbing freight trains of the black gold.
They grub a living for themselves doing all sorts of dirty jobs and then grow up as Calcutta’s most loved Gunday who are as reckless as fearless.
There’s trainloads of action and stunts in this teaser as we see Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor as the black market mafia-men ruling the seedy underworld with their sheer grit.
The beautiful canary in this coalmine is Priyanka Chopra, but we don’t get to see her in the teaser.
