What would you say if I tell you that there are gang wars happening in India right now? You would say it to me that I might be talking about Bollywood, or just living in my own world FFS. I mean, on a serious note, gang wars and street fights are kinds of stories that are dead after the early twenty-first century.
To put it in a serious way, the criminal underworld is a menacing enigma – ruled by the laws of omerta and portrayed as a scene of violence and fear, it’s hard to shake off the image of an all-encompassing network of cold-blooded gangsters and criminal masterminds who won’t flinch while pulling the trigger.
Meanwhile, in Goa, their notoriety might be somewhat dampened by the fact that the 2 top gangs there are called the Boom Boom gang and the Bang Bang gang. And they’re apparently at war.

I mean, c’mon, they could’ve gone with anything. They could’ve been the Goa Gunslingers, or Konkani Kalamity (amazing names, you’re welcome), but they were like fuck it, main Boom Boom, tu Bang Bang.
And obviously, the internet had some things to say.
Hahahaa isse acha toh Josh ke gangs hai

Also, after all, those guys have guns and we don’t, so they can call themselves whatever they want!
