Chill like a gangster every weekend with Star Moves Select HD
Gangsters. They’re an evil, uncouth, unlawful lot, causing a real menace to the society. That, usually, is our outlook towards gangsters and in most parts is true. What we don’t focus on though, is the backstory that pushed them into becoming the way they are. What made Gangsters… ‘Gangsters?’ This is a question Star Movies Select HD answers with their new festival ‘Gangsters of Hollywood.’ Airing every Saturday and Sunday at 9PM, from the 18th of November, Star Moves Select HD brings some hard-hitting narratives around Gangsters and their backstories.

In Donnie Brasco, see how an undercover FBI agent Joseph D Pistone infiltrates a crime organisation in New York, only to slowly sympathise with them, and leaving the viewer with an essential question, will the Undercover agent become like the very organisation which he had to clean up?
The French Connection

In the Antonio Banderas starrer Desperado, the story of how a man locates a drug lord, and seeks revenge against him, earning plaudits from people. The amount of rawness that was there in the story of the Mariachi trying to complete his mission gives us the chills!
