Meaning go and watch immediately. One numbers standing ovation for Anurag Kashyap, and two numbers standing ovation for Piyush Mishra, the man in charge of music and lyrics. Kickasssssss.
Gulaal is a nice, hard sock in the solar plexus. Film noir and how. Everyone's the bad guy except poor Jesse Randhawa and Prithvi-Sa. Here is a great review of the film on Culturazzi.org.
My standouts from Gulaal: 1. Prithvi Sa - PIYUSH MISHRA himself! *ceetees* 2. Kay Kay Menon - Love this man. LOVE him. He can be so bad. 3. Abhimanyu Singh: Plays Rannanjay/Rann Sa. Searing-hot good till he's unceremoniuosly bumped off. 3. The man playing Jhadwaal. Badass only. Loved his filmy jokes and his stupid cronies laughing on cue. (What's with all these men in the hostel room in their undies only? I have a feeling it's realistic. Eeeks. Thank the Lord again that I am a girl-items.) 4. Lady playing Madhuri: Very fine. Kind of not completely there upstairs. 'Mein Tabu jaisi dikhti hoon?' and all sorts of Tabu songs playing in her room. Naaansense only! 5. Little sister Kiran: Eeeeeevil woman. Little firecracker only. 6. The music and lyrics - Oh me, oh my. Goose pimples only.
