Review: The film is a remake of the Tamil film Thaana Serndha Koottam, which itself is remade from the Hindi original Special 26 which was a super duper hit. But I must add that the director has done a good job of it. What makes Gang stand out from the other remakes is the fact that the filmmaker has added a few mass elements typical to any South Indian films to suit the sensibilities of the South audience. There's no doubting Suriya's acting prowess as he proves that he can pull off any role with ease. Keerthy Suresh has done her bit. The screenplay is the king here. The film's story is inspired from a real life incident in 1987 when a group posing as CBI raided a jewellery showroom in Mumbai and stole around 35 lakhs.
