Meeruthiya Gangster Movie Review:Meeruthiya Gangsters is the sly humour writer-director Zeishan Quadri laces his lines with. Barring that, there is hardly a show of his inspired writing. A bunch of dreamy-eyed local goons creating havoc – is a story we’ve often explored on celluloid and has now ceased to be as inventive or impressive as before. Drawing from the baleful sphere, Quadri dishes out an insipid formulaic story that follows the routine of staple gangster sagas in Bollywood.

Meeruthiya Gangster Movie Review & Rating
Good: Humor is the only good thing found in the film. There is a little which works for this film and hence few laughs will have thanks to the hilarity of the situations presented. Sanjay Mishra is the comic relief of the film and has much caliber here.
Bad: The plot is the main thing that doesn’t work for the film. The film’s music and amateur film’s direction is also not up to expectation. The film is worst in all the departments and doesn’t reach minimum expectations. Though the film doesn’t run for much time the execution time for the film is lengthy.
lazily arranged sequence of scenes where this gang accomplishes one kidnapping after another, with a few love angles thrown in to justify the female cast. When unruly inspector R K Singh (Mukul Dev) is tasked with investigating one of their misdeeds, the story doesn’t take any turns as he fails. While the runtime is just 128 minutes, it feels a lot longer.
A mentionable scene in the film that would’ve sounded incredible in the narration but fails to be executed cinematically is when Sanjeev Foreigner misplaces a part of his ear during a gang war and his mates go back to the place of action to recover it. What ends up on screen lacks the intensity and hilarity that this situation demanded.
A problem with this rural rowdy story is that it expends little effort to introduce characters. So when you nose dive into their story, you flip through scenes with little attention or interest in the events that follow. And when your cast doesn’t have many recognizable faces, a basic build up helps establish the premise and also influences audience empathy for the characters and their condition.
Among the performances, Ahlawat stands out from the rest, while Dahiya, who has scored bitesized roles in a dozen films, does fairly well too. Mukul Dev, perhaps the longest-surviving struggler in the industry, hams it up and seems smug in his mediocrity. The rest seem like extras who’re too enthused to finally land a role where their character has a name.
Debutant director Zeishan Quadri makes all the classical mistakes of a first-timer. To begin with, he seems too consumed with the idea of infusing humour in tense sequences. This would’ve worked if the jabs were sharp and didn’t undermine or diffuse the magnitude of the scene. Here, they only serve as a distraction. Secondly, when you seamlessly capture an entire scene in a single shot, you may pat yourself on the back. But when you repeatedly do it, it seems like a gimmick and that you’re doing it just because you can.
One complains when star-studded blockbusters can afford to rake in crores without a plot. But this one dares to be produced without a star or story and hopes to pass as indie, a term loosely thrown around these days for modestly budgeted films.
Verdict: Obviously No. there is nothing to watch in the film. You will not find something extra ordinary, nor hear. We suggest you not to waste your time and money watching this film.
