Gulaal-- A movie about Love, Power, Betrayal

I happened to watch latest movie Gullal by Anurag Kashyap on Saturday late night show. This is thought-provoking and has the power to engage us at various points of the narrative. The movie is different and beside some loose script at few places the movie is well made with some excellent acting and songs. It highlights student politics its aspirations and exploitation and also concept of revolution about a idea whom some one believes but at the same time how some one uses others for their own personal interest. Again not everyone has revolutionary ideas and leadership and if you have , you have to fit others in to your plan and i dont think its bad obviously we have to make small sacrifices for big cause. Also if you are not busy making your own plan you have to fit into someone else plan. So get busy making your own plan. The movie depict real picture of college politics and issue and dilemma faced by people who were king before independence and who had lost their power and also about college ragging too. I happened to see similar politics with full of violence, rage and hate when i was in Allahabad university and there i faced some hard ragging too.

Something about the song of the movie, some are freaky and witty and some are really from the heart of true poet i don't know who is writer. Now days there very few poet are left who write 'Veer Ras' poem specially about Rajashthan and Rajput I remember some in my school days were Shubhadra kumari chahuhan, Shaym narayan pandey etc. reading those i used to feel very passionate and excited. now a days no one writes about bravery and 'Desh Prem'

Few lines from movie songs..

Aarambh hai prachand
bole mastakon ke jhuund
aaj jang ki ghadi ki tum guhaar do -2
aan baan shaan yaa ki jaan kaa ho daan
aaj ik dhanuSh ke baan pe utaar do -2
aarambh hai prachand

Something about current status of this world

alsaayi sejo ke phoolon ki duniya oh duniya re
angdaayi tode kabootar ki duniya oh duniya re
aye karwat le soyi haqeeqat ki duniya oh duniya
deewani hoti tabiyat ki duniya oh duniya
khwaahish mein lipti zaroorat ki duniya oh duniya re
heyyy insaan ke sapno ki niyat ki duniya oh duniya
oh ri duniya aaa… oh ri duniya
oh ri duniya aaa… oh ri duniya
yeh duniya agar mil bhi jaaye to kya hai?

and some freaky lines

जैसे हरेक बात पे डैमोक्रसी मे लगने लग गयो बैन
जैसे दूर देस के टावर में घुस जाये रे एरोप्लेन
जैसे सरेआम इराक़ में जाके जम गये अंकल सैम
जैसे बिना बात अफ़गानिस्तां का बज गया भय्या बैण्ड
