Bollywood films about gambling

Gambling is a hugely popular pastime in India and it is one which has generated plenty of interest in the Bollywood movie industry.

While the likes of The Gambler, The Cincinnati Kid, The Sting, and Casino Royale are well-known to western society, Bollywood has done its bit to create similarly themed movies.

The glitz and glamour of gambling at places like JackpotCity provide a perfect backdrop for Indian filmmakers and they have produced some of the best casino movies ever made.

Read on as we look at some of our favorite Bollywood casino films.

The Great Gambler

The Great Gambler movie

This 1970s casino film bombed at the box office, but did well in Mumbai and has since gone on to be viewed as something of a cult classic.

Amitabh Bachchan plays Jai, an unbeaten gambling specialist who ends up working for a crooked casino boss.

He is paid to play against and defeat the casino’s high-rolling clients, before becoming mixed up in complex plot that just about manages to stay believable.

Jai ends up teaming up with his long-lost twin brother to stop a top-secret military laser weapon falling into the wrong hands – a far cry from his expertise as a gambler.

Striker

This 2010 movie holds a unique place in Indian film culture, as it was the first to be premiered on YouTube on the same day as it was released in cinemas.

Striker follows the story of Suryakant Sarang, a youngster who wins the Junior Carrom Championship at just 12 years of age.

As he progresses through his teenage years, he tries to secure a job in Dubai, but is swindled out of his winnings by an unscrupulous employment agency.

He returns to one of the best Bollywood film games to take on Jaleel – a champion player from another region who stands in his way of recovering his money.

For more movies and tv series about casino games like: Teen Patti, Jannat, you can visit Hotstar – Indian top streaming service, NETFLIX, SonyLIV.
