Gang is a 2000 Bollywood action film directed by Mazhar Khan. The film stars Nana Patekar, Kumar Gaurav, Javed Jaffrey, Jackie Shroff, Juhi Chawla and Imtiaz Khan in pivotal roles. The film began production in 1990 and was delayed for 10 years because of director Mazhar Khan's ill health. After his death in 1998, his assistant director helped complete the film for release on April 14, 2000. The film was also the last to feature music by RD Burman who died in 1994.
Four friends, Gangu (Jackie Shroff), Abdul (Nana Patekar), Nihal (Kumar Gaurav) and Gary (Jaaved Jaffrey)- which forms the word G.A.N.G, get together to start their business, but their roots are built on friendship and trust. They succeed in their criminal goals, although Gangu is arrested and sentenced to jail for five years. Before going to jail, he asks them to promise to go straight, to which they all agree.
When Gangu is released, he is pleased to find that Abdul is now driving a taxi, his mother is well looked after, and that Nihal and Gary have also started doing business. It is when Gangu meets his sweetheart, Sanam (Juhi Chawla), and proposes marriage, that he learns that all is not well in their world.
Director Mazhar Khan had started the project in 1990 and faced delays due to his ill-health. However Khan revived the project in 1998. Khan later died on 16 September 1998 due to renal failure, thus keeping the production work on hold. However in 1999, Mashkoor Chowdhry, the assistant of Khan worked on the film's remaining direction, technical aspects and leftover production.
R.D.Burman composed only one track, Chhod Ke Na Jaana, sung by Asha Bhosle, for the film. But since the movie faced late release and his death, Mazhar Khan signed in Anu Malik for the composition. It can be noted that Anu Malik used some bits of the background score composed by Burman, of the movie, Caravan for the song Dil Hai Bechain in the late composer's remembrance.
