Gulaal movie

March 20, 2009

‘Gulaal’, directed by Anurag Kashyap, is an acerbic comment on caste- and region-based politics that promote competitive parochial interests, often undermining India’s secular democratic structure.

The film uses student politics entangled with a covert rebellion against the Government by an erstwhile princely community to highlight the pulls and pressures on democracy from growing regional aspirations and discontent.

“The film is a result of my anger at the deterioration of the democratic process in the country,” Kashyap told reporters.

‘Gulaal’ opens with a fiery speech from a leader of a formerly princely community who wants to win back the days of the maharajas from the government, which he accuses of duping the princely classes into giving up their royal claims, and then ignoring them.
