Dileep is a Rajput who has arrived at University. He is ragged by
some college goons. His unlikely companion is feisty, hot-headed and
virile Ransa, who is son of a royal aristocrat whom he loathes. Ransa
is roped in as election candidate by Rajput Senapati, Kay Kay (awesome
performance) for his cause of making a Rajputana. Circumstances ensure
that ill-equipped Dileep takes Ransa's place as General Secretary in
university elections. He wins, but can not save himself from the murk
around. He is doomed in love.
Gulal has everything that can work for a good movie: A fast action
story that is gripping enough. Outstanding performances from the entire
cast. I can't be snooty and pick on anyone for doing a bad job. Anurag
does a good job of eliciting guffaws amidst even the dark parts of the
story. Some of those scenes are very memorable to me. I was laughing
quite loudly. And female characters are small yet striking, though they are only minnions in a man's world.
