Is Bachchan Pandey Based On A True Story?

The story of Bachchan Pandey revolves around an aspiring director who aims to make a biopic. Her task was only to ensure that she makes a gangster flick. However, her fascination with real-life gangster Bachchan Pandey attracts her attention and so she decides to go ahead with the plan. As we see in the trailer, the man is scary. He can kill people solely for his pleasure. It is mind-boggling to see a man who can kill anyone and everyone for his entertainment.

The story is being presented humorously but that doesn’t take away from the fact that it is beyond comprehension to figure out why is the man on a mission to kill. Bachchan Pandey is not your typical villain. He doesn’t have a sad story behind him and seems to work purely on instinct. He’ll kill people if he wants to. Seeing his story one can not help but wonder how near truth is the film.

There are high chances that Bachchan Pandey will do great at the Box office. Considering the fact that the lead actors have proved their massive pull at the Box office time and again. The trio of Nadiadwala, Kumar, and Farhad Samji has also given many hits including the Houseful series and Heyy Babyy. The release of the film has been postponed quite a few times due to the Corona crisis. Now that the situation seems to be under control, the film is releasing in theatres with promotions going around. The buzz is fine enough for a big opening and further performance of the film will depend on the story and how well made the film is.
