Bikaner-based 28-year-old Dilip Kumar Singh is enrolled in a Rajpur-based Law college, and rents a room with an unstable male, Rananjay Singh. His attempts to re-locate to a hostel, pits him against a group of men, led by Jadhwal, who not only assault, but also molest him, and then lock him in a dark room with a naked and abused female, Anuja. He recuperates in a hospital and joins hands with Rananjay and Dukey Bana to avenge this humiliation, as well as befriends Anuja, who is a Lecturer in the college. He also decides to support Rananjay, who is legitimate son of a former Raja, to run for college elections - and it is this decision that will shatter and change his life forever.

Did You Know?


Anurag Kashyap stated "Gulaal though didn't have anything controversial. It was just that wasn't getting producers and so it got delayed. Someone has to sponsor your films. But I am happy that it's releasing and it is an interesting film. I think controversy is a part of life. Whenever I have tried to do something new it has created controversy but its fine with me."

User Reviews

amazing movie with great performances
14 March 2009 | by vickydashSee all my reviews

This is the 3rd AK's movie I watched and as usual this one also filled with power packed performances. The best part of the movie was the songs. You may not like the songs without watching the movie. Piyush mishra is a immensely talented actor and to my surprise singer too. The lyrics of the songs sung by him are philosophical and sarcastic at the same time. You may laugh his songs off but it will definitely make you think. Deepak Dobriyal is another truck load of talent. I am sure his role as Bhati will please both critics and viewers. Not to mention KK Menon and the protagonist too are treat to watch. Watch this movie if you want your money worth.
