‘Guns & Gulaabs’series review:Raj & DK’s new show is charmingly dazed and confused

‘Guns & Gulaabs’ starring Rajkummar Rao, Dulquer Salmaan and Adarsh Gourav abounds in 90s nostalgia and weirdness, but can feel quite random and adrift in the home stretch

After a couple of shows that moved blazingly fast, directors Raj & DK have elected to slow down. Their Amazon shows The Family Man and Farzi were marked by busy plots and relentless pacing. Their debut Netflix series, Guns & Gulaabs, certainly has a plot: the undertaking of a large opium deal in a sleepy farming town in the early 90s. It has a countdown attached as well; a month’s time to safely execute the order or begetting consequences. Yet the pacing is knowingly deliberate, wistful. It’s as though the heady air of the vast poppy fields were infecting the entire series, rendering it loose and lackadaisical.

The series is set in the imaginary ‘Gulaabgunj’. Local big cheese Ganchi (late actor Satish Kaushik, his enormous bald head put to loving use) falls through the woodwork of his large house and slips into a coma. It puts his heir, the fairly inexperienced Jugnu (Adarsh Gourav), in charge. Jugnu is meant to oversee the ‘Calcutta deal’ while keeping rival factions and a new Narcotics officer in town, Arjun (Dulquer Salmaan), in check. Shy mechanic Tipu (Rajkummar Rao) kills two men in a fit of rage with his spanner and later joins up with Ganchi gang. Hot on his heels is a freelance assassin from Bombay, 4-Cut Atmaram (Gulshan Devaiah), so named for the eponymous ‘four cuts’ he lethally inflicts upon his victims.
