Storyline

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.

Trivia

Anurag Kashyap stated "Gulaal' is the most powerful film I have made. Though I have written movies based on student politics before I have never directed a movie on it. This movie has a fictional plot based in Rajasthan. Moreover, it has a love story running as its backdrop. I did not experiment too much with this film. I always felt when I wrote 'Gulaal' that I'm doing something which is way ahead of time. So, now that it is releasing, I'm quite confident as the issues I was probing back then, are plaguing our country now. My film is a cry for democracy and it shows the corruption of the system which is a prevalent issue even now". See more »

Quotes

one of the best movies in Indian cinema
6 January 2010 | by t_ketanSee all my reviews

This movie reaches far from what an ordinary Indian movie can be.

I congratulate Anurag for this. He has the vision to understand this kind of movie... not only that but to canvas them.

The scenes like "KYA MAI DARPOK HU?" "USNE TERI MAA SE SHADI NAI KI", "SARFAROSHI KI TAMANNA", " KARAN: RAJNITI JANTE HO?", "POORI FORCE KE SAATH AYA HUN"," KIRAN KO BULA KE KYA KANYA DAAN KARVAYEGA?" JUST imagine we got to this level...

Exceptionaly extraordinary songs which introduces you to the heart of the story like "beedo", " SAHER HAMARO SOYO THO..", " .. Rana Ji mare ..." unbelievably outstanding.. marvelous.

Thanks Anurag.... and keep up.. I hope you keep on doing like this.. please don't change..::)
