Gulaab Gang unites Madhuri and Juhi for the first time on screen

Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla in Gulab Gang (2)One of the most impactful and socially relevant films to emerge from India in recent times, cinematic tour de force, Gulaab Gang, releases in UK cinemas on 7th March 2014 to mark Women’s Day (on 8th March), produced by Anubhav Sinha, presented and co-produced by Sahara Movie Studios and Bharat Shah, distributed internationally by B4U.

A powerful, female-centric film that conveys a hard-hitting social message, Gulaab Gang sees debut director, Soumik Sen, bring together on-screen for the very first time two of Indian cinema’s most lauded actresses. The iconic Madhuri Dixit and inimitable Juhi Chawla ignite the silver screen in powerhouse performances that will resonate with audiences and cinemagoers both traditional and new, as Gulaab Gang presents Indian filmmaking at its finest on the platform of world cinema.

Gulaab Gang heralds a new dawn in Hindi cinema for multiple reasons, among them that two of the industry’s most accomplished and acclaimed female artists take centre stage in a strong, social message film about female empowerment, with women at the heart and soul of the film; the adulated and beloved Juhi Chawla delivers a career magnum opus in her first negative screen role; and the beguiling Madhuri Dixit lends her vocals to Soumik Sen’s emotive and heart-stirring soundtrack that harmoniously complements a film that will pack a punch with audiences and critics alike for years to come.

Gulaab Gang - UK ReleaseSynopsis: Somewhere in the Hindi heartland, an ashram of sorts has been set up by ‘Rajjo’ (Madhuri Dixit), where women armed with axes and sickles and dressed in pink nine yards mete out evil and seek out justice for one and all, while making hand-ground spices, hand-woven baskets and sarees. But when the party she was campaigning for reveals its true colours, Rajjo knows she has a whole new battle ahead of her, dual-headed by a corrupt force of evil in the guise of ‘Sumitra Devi’ (Juhi Chawla). 

Sumitra Devi is an institution whose money, bullet and connection-driven juggernaut of politics is a threat Rajjo hasn’t encountered before. Realising the devil incarnate is soon enough going to swamp, sabotage, silence and encompass the work she has been striving for all these years and draw her into a deadlier web of buyout, Rajjo is forced into battle with this new, unseen evil… at the ballot box. With something she has lived to learn all these years – the strength of soul, song and stick – this season the color of justice will be pink.

Proving the power in pink in Indian cinema’s most compelling, female-centric film to date, Gulaab Gang releases on 7th March 2014, produced by Anubhav Sinha, presented and co-produced by Sahara Movie Studios and Bharat Shah, distributed internationally by B4U.
