The basic injustice at the core of Gangvaa is the way the landed classes take advantage of ordinary village folk.Early on in the film, a work crew finds a pot full of gold coins (these are delightful yellow-painted circles of cardboard, near as I can tell), and a suitably mustache-twirling zamindar (Amrish Puri) confiscates them to add to his already massive wealth. Enter Gangvaa (Rajnikanth) to save the day; like a classical mythological warrior, he makes his first appearance in the film riding a chariot. Gangvaa punches and kicks his way through the zamindar’s goons, and quickly dispatches the zamindar to an early exit (presumably freeing Amrish Puri to move on to the set next door where he can play the same villain in some other masala movie). There is a satisfying, if gruesome, spatter of blood on the camera lens to mark the zamindar’s final moment on earth. And Rajnikanth’s trademark fighting style is such an undeniable thrill to watch, even for someone like me who is not a big fan of dishoom-dishoom. He delivers multiple punches of bone-crunching force without moving his arm – it really is all in the wrist, I guess. Gangvaa puts together a band of the men who had suffered under the zamindar’s tyrrany. Together they hang out in the wilderness and perform Robin-Hood-esque raids for the sake of vigilante justice. At some point Jamna (Shabana Azmi) encounters Gangvaa and is smitten. Then a village girl accuses Gangvaa of rape, and Jamna is enraged – it is here that she gets the vigorously indignant speech that marks Shabana Azmi’s movies of this time period, the kind of speech without which one presumes should would not have accepted the role. It turns out that the rape was actually done by a totally different guy named Gangvaa (Raza Murad), and righting this wrong wins Jamna back for our hero, but makes him a new set of enemies that he spends the rest of the film fleeing from. Also on his tail is an upstanding police inspector in the handsome form of Suresh Oberoi, who cannot allow vigilante justice in his district, no matter how noble the intention. Actually I am not sure that Oberoi’s character is the archetypical blemishless uncorruptible officer – having watched Gangvaa without subtitles I am sure I missed some nuance. It is possible that I am merely projecting Oberoi’s character from Tezaab on this film. But I’m pretty sure I have it right
