Gulmohar is a household drama that explores all the complexity that any family encounters, including property issues, interpersonal conflicts, and people demanding unique lifestyles. Whatever you do or where you go, your battle is always a result of your family, and your journey only ends at home. It is as though you only leave your home to begin and end your day. Rahul V. Chittella, the director, does a fantastic job of attempting to illustrate the value and beauty of a family.
Nonetheless, despite its straightforward plot, the movie seems to have a lot going on because of the various subplots that are there.
Kusum Batra, the family’s head, decides to celebrate Holi for a final time before moving out permanently as part of the farewell festivities that kick off Gulmohar. Second, she declares that she will be relocating to Pondicherry and will no longer be living together. The entire family is shocked by this news, including her son Arun Batra. While some people are pleased with her choice, others are not really amused by it. The family members witnessed all the highs and lows in only those four days as they had to leave the apartment and transition to their new life.
A combined family is spending its remaining 4 days in the 31-year-old family house in Gulmohar before starting anew in a new place. But, during the course of these 4 days, the family experiences both love and heartbreak, as well as all the up and downs. But will they see the value of family? Comprehend the significance of unity?
Undoubtedly, Manoj Bajpayee is one of Bollywood’s top performers. Even among others, he is a great who simply inhabits his role to the utmost. He does a superb job of portraying the helplessness of both a father and a son(in Gulmohar).
In her role as Kusum Batra, Sharmila Tagore excels. You will not realise that she is an actor portraying a character and not your real mother, because of the passion with which she expresses her feelings. Sharmila just understands her part so well that she doesn’t require any guidance, from displaying Kusum’s strong, head-of-the-family demeanour to displaying her weak and broken side. She is a complete joy to watch throughout the film(Gulmohar). Simran , Suraj Sharma and Amol palkar did a fantastic job.
The writer of the Gulmohar tale is Arpita Mukherjee. Richard V. Chittella. The two simply intended to emphasise the value of a household and their connection, but it kind of incorporated other tales as well. From Reshma’s love tale to the LGBTQ perspective highlighting Amrita’s love for a female, there were far too many subplots. In a two-hour film, it seems that there is too much occurring.
