Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 2.0 4.0

Gunga Din is based on Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem. Gunga Din released in 1939 with a run time of 117 minutes. Three funny sergeants are off in British India. The two trick their third friend to stay in the military to do one final mission, which ended up being a real mission. Now the three must save the day. Instead, Gunga Din, a young man born in India, wasn’t allows to join the British army. Gunga ends up finding information on a much larger attack and he ends up being the hero and saves the day!
