Rarely used outside the Indian subcontinent, the phrase "bang opposite" is used to emphasize that a location faces a landmark. Probably suggests that a loud noise in the opposite building can be heard at the location in question

Usage

My place is bang opposite Mounts, can see all the Phreedevis there

Given the desi tendency to accidently sexualize things (our phone booths have STD, our cars have dickys and our shops tell people that entry is from the backside only!), it is not strange that when we give directions and want to say that something is opposite something else, we say it with a bang and not a whimper!

We say " bang opposite" instead of just "opposite!'

Usage

Gulu: How do I get to casa piccola?
Goose: Go Straaaaight right and then you will come to one signal. Take a left turn there. It is bang opposite the Bangalore Club
