Guns And Gulaabs Review: Strong Performances Shine, but Story Falls Short

Guns And Gulaabs

“Guns And Gulaabs,” starring Dulquer Salmaan and Rajkummar Rao, seems to offer strong performances from its cast, but falls short in terms of its story and script. The show, created by Raj and DK, known for their previous works like “Family Man” and “Farzi,” is a mafia-themed series with elements of opium smuggling, murders, and action sequences. Here’s a review of the show based on the information provided:

Plot: The series revolves around four main characters over seven episodes. Rajkummar Rao plays Tipu, a character on a killing spree, while Gulshan Devaiah portrays Charkat Atmaram, who has a unique way of murdering people. Dulquer Salmaan is cast as Arjun, a cop determined to catch the two killers and wipe out an opium gang. Adarsh Gaurav plays Chhota Ganchi, whose father is involved in the opium mafia and wants him to follow in his footsteps.

Performances: The cast delivers strong performances. Rajkumar Rao, in particular, impresses with his portrayal of a mafia character, while Gulshan Devaiah leaves an impact with his limited dialogues. Dulquer Salmaan’s performance is described as excellent, and Adarsh Gaurav also receives praise for his role as Chhota Ganchi. TJ Bhanu’s portrayal of English teacher Chandralekha is noted for its departure from typical Bollywood heroines, and the late Satish Kaushik’s acting is appreciated as well.

Script and Cinematography: The script is described as a weak point in the series, with the actors carrying the story. The series relies on the strong performances to make up for shortcomings in the story. There are scenes with profanity that might catch viewers’ attention. The direction is credited with compensating for the weaknesses in the script to a certain extent.

Overall: “Guns And Gulaabs” is recommended for viewers interested in the performances of the four lead actors. However, it’s noted that the series is not suitable for family viewing due to its content. The story is considered weaker compared to the actors’ performances, and the direction helps offset these shortcomings to some degree.
