Gulaal :: love…power…revolution


I chose to watch Gulaal over 13B this weekend and I don’t regret even a single bit for that . The movie was fantastic and Anurag Kashyap more than succeeded in portraying what he wanted to . If you hold an interest in the classic politics , then this is a movie you would love to watch again and again .

Disclaimer :  Spoilers Ahead



The movie starts with Dilip Kumar Singh (Raj Singh Choudhary , the protagonist of the story) being taken to a place , wearing black clothes and with red gulaal all over his face , where Dukey Bana (Kay Kay) is delivering a fiery speech in an attempt to lit the patriotic flame in the heart of every Rajput for regaining the Rajputana . The start itself leaves a big impact on the audience . Kay Kay is at his best . His character , Dukey Bana , is the senapati of the Rajputs , who is trying to gather all the resources to initiate a revolution against the system .

Dilip comes from Bikaner to study law , not knowing that he will be engulfed by the political storm that existed there . He stays with Rananjay (played by Abhimanyu Singh) , who took birth in a royal family but refuses to lead the life of Your-Highness .

Dilip and Rananjay were introduced to Dukey Bana by Bhati (Deepak Dobriyal) , Bana’s most trusted man , when they decided to avenge the ragging of Dilip . Dukey convinces Ransa to fight the college elections . Ransa was murdered and the circumstances saw Dilip standing as a nominee for the post of General Secretary .

Dukey Bana resorted to unfair means and Dilip won the elections over Kiran (debut performance by Ayesha Mohan) . Kiran uses her innocent face to trap Dilip in her false love and drains him off all his emotions to the extent that Dilip refuses to beleive anyone when told about the real face of Kiran .

The master mind behind all the moves is Karan (played by Aditya Srivastav) , Kiran’s elder brother . He is Ransa’s step brother and is fighting for his father’s name . He planned everything , from Ransa’s mother to Dukey Bana’s murder from Dilip’s hand , in order to get the tag of “Rajput” and aspires to take the position of Dukey Bana . With the death of Dukey Bana , the power of Senapati is transferred to Karan . And thus , the madness which ended with Dukey Bana , will now be carried forward by Karan .


The songs of the movie are awesome with very meaningful Lyrics . Piyush Mishra ( who brilliantly played the role of Prithvi Bana , Dukey’s elder brother) , has written the lyrics . composed the music and has playbacked a few songs as well .  The Prithvi version of  Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna and Yeh Duniya agar mil bhi jaaye to kya hai points out the theme of the story , that how worthless was the revolution and the demand to establish Rajputana , at the cost of lives of a number of people . Still , there are  few lines such as Jaise dur desh ke tower me ghush gaya re aeroplane which can hurt few people .

Everyone has done a justice to his character . Kay Kay is brilliant as ever . Abhimanyu Singh did justice to his character , creating humor at many places . Raj Singh Choudhary has successfully portrayed an innocent boy who suffers the brainwash during ragging , and then unknowingly gets involved in the dirty politics of love , power and revolution , finally leading to his death .

If I were the PM of India


Until my mind took a turn and I decided to opt engineering as my career , the aim of my life was to become the Prime Minister of India … 😉 …. To become the senior most minister ….. with all the administrative powers …… the power to bring forth any reform I would like …… seriously , here is a list of what I would have done if they make me PM of this country ……


Make me the PM of India and the first clause that you will find amended will be the clause on ragging ….. it would read something like this ,

”Ragging is a wonderful act and any student found involved in this activity shall be rewarded ……. Any student found trying to escape from this activity will be expelled from the institute and can also be imprisoned for few days …….. strict action will be taken by the authorities against the freshers who oppose this peaceful act of the seniors” ……. 😛





All the movies that make their way to the theatre will be made total free of cost for the students …… 😉 …… No no no …. Don’t think what an irresponsible and a waste of PM I am ……. I will make sure our economy don’t go the gutter …… the people without the student ID will be liable to pay thrice the normal price of the ticket …… and so will be the dudes with their girlfriends …. 😛 …… Mr. PM only serves the needy …. Not the greedy …. 😉 …….


We all are equal ….. that would be the message I will put forward ……. No reservations for anyone ….. admissions will be based only on merit …… I won’t have any guy named Arjun Singh in my cabinet ……. And I won’t have any quotas to favour the reserved ones and to snatch the seats from the deserving ones …… Hip hip hurray …… 😀 …… P.S. no reservations even for girls .…. 😡 ….. I don’t mind a ratio of 10:1 in any branch ……


Any institute found holding an extra class on a declared holiday will be severely punished …… even a complaint launched against the institute ….. and Mr. Principal …. Pack your bags for a trip ….. a trip to the jail for a day or two …… so that you could also experience same sufferings which you made the students to go through …… 😡 …….


A lot and lot of plans I hold in my mind ….. 5 long years of my span will be enough to implement these plans …… no student will be held back for short attendance …… assignments will be made compulsory only for the muggers …… exam schedule will be decided by the students through voting …… DC will never interfere in the student’s business …… bunks will be made compulsory…..and the dictatorship of the college management will become a thing of the past …… Any further suggestions are most welcome ……. I won’t hesitate in incorporating them in my list ….. Who knows….. If I really become PM one day…. 😉


An Unfortunate Event


Ghaziabad, Aug 23 (IANS) A first year engineering student of a private engineering college here tried to commit suicide after being ragged by his seniors for about a month.

Amit Verma later told the police that he was repeatedly ragged by seniors since he joined the Raj Kumar Goyal Institute of Technology (RKGIT) in Ghaziabad.

Verma, who has been admitted to a hospital, said he first complained about the ragging to his father, Bete Lal, a railway officer who took up the matter with the college.

“I stayed here for many days with my son to ensure nothing happens to him. I took the matter to the hostel warden. But strangely the warden told me that such ragging was very common and could not be stopped,” Lal said.

When Lal left Ghaziabad Aug 21, the ragging resumed.

On Friday, the seniors took Verma to a market in a car and made him drink alcohol laced with a sedative. Fed up, the student took pesticide in a bid to kill himself.

RKGIT director K.B. Nayak said: “We are trying to identify the boys involved in the incident. Strict action will be taken against the guilty. If the charges are proved correct, the guilty will be expelled from the college.”

This is the reason why RKGIT was in news last month ……An unfortunate event that shouldn’t have happened …… Being in second year , I know that none of my batchmates would have done something like this ….. Infact , we have never been into ragging …… But whatever has happened can’t be changed …… I , seriously hope nothing of this sort happens again …..
