A hauntingly brilliant, unnerving disclosure of human behavior and emotions

Despite its many problems, A Death in the Gunj is an important work

A Death In The Gunj is a beautiful slice of a life cum thriller film, with a lesson. However, the film will not appeal to every kind of audience. If you are a true admirer of good cinema, you’ll love it for sure. I give it 3 stars.

A Death in the Gunj is not a happy film at all times, but it is very entertaining -- not in a loud way, but in the sense that watching it is a very satisfying experience
