Intriguing social drama 'Gulaal' premieres today

MUMBAI: Bollywood has seen a plethora of films based on state politics, but there has never been a narrative as startling as ‘Gulaal’. Boasting of superlative performances, this film directed by Anurag Kashyap cuts through the layers of grass-root politics situated in the regions from Rajasthan to Bihar. Zee Classic with its brand promise of Woh Zamana Kare Deewana, will premiere ‘Gulaal’ in India’s Finest Films on Friday, 3 March, at 10pm.

‘Gulaal’ revolves around a central god-like leader, illegitimate methods of conducting politics, folk songs heartily sung by Rekha Bharadwaj and strong noteworthy performances by Kay Kay Menon, Mahie Gill, Raj Singh Chaudhary, Jesse Randhawa, Piyush Mishra and a climax that is sure to give goosebumps! The film took seven long years of wait and relentless struggle by Anurag Kashyap to make it happen. It is highly credited for its compelling storytelling and dark themed narrative.

Dilip Singh (Raj Singh Chaudhary), a soft-spoken man comes to Rajasthan to study law. Due to the lack of hostel occupancy, he is forced to stay with an unstable man Rananjay Singh (Abhimanyu Singh). During his constant attempts to relocate, Dilip encounters a room-full of men who torture and abuse him. He is then locked up in a room with a lady (Jesse Randhawa). Dilip partners with Rananjay and Dukey Bana (Kay Kay Menon) to plan to take revenge on the people who humiliated him. Dukey Bana is a local uncrowned monarch who was contesting for the forthcoming university elections. Murders, bloodshed and conniving tactics to get to the top is what forms the rest of the film.
