The colours

I recently watched a movie recently: Gulaal

It comes off as an extremely strong film. The music just captivates you and gives you goose pimples all over.
In fact I felt the song "Aarambh" more violent than its portrayal.
When the movie ended, i was just dumbstruck for a couple of minutes.

The idea of hero or good winning over evil or who fights wins and all that is just chucked off.
krishna ki pukaar hai ye bhagwat ka saar hai
ki yudh hi to veer ka pramaan hai
kaurvon ki bheed ho ya paandavon ka need ho
jo lad saka hai wohi to mahaan hai
They stick to it.
It's pure politics.
It's pure Mahabharat.
And you don't understand who is the good guy or who is the bad.
Because everyone is just selfish.
And the best brain wins.

The character Piyush Mishra plays is intolerably good. And his painted friend is spooky.
