Raj and DK, the creators of the famous 'The Family Man' series, are back. Their latest creation, 'Guns & Gulaabs', is streaming on Netflix. Besides creating it, they have also directed the black comedy thriller. The synopsis of the show on Wikipedia says, "Set in the 90s world of crime and violence, it depicts the story of love and innocence blending with humour and romance." Rajkummar Rao and Dulquer Salmaan have headlined it.
How is the latest Hindi-language series in the town? Going by critics' reviews, the series is watchable although not great. The Quint, in its review, said that it is a "game of cat-and-mouse and secrets and jealousy and changing plans that keep you on your toes, constantly guessing."
NDTV described 'Guns & Gulaabs' as a marvelously whacky crime drama. The reviewer enjoyed watching its "twisted and toxic universe peopled by opium dealers, gun-toting gangsters, a vicious knife-wielding assassin with seven lives, an anti-narcotics officer with a troubling past."
The Hindustan Times review had a few criticisms. The reviewer found incoherence and added that the "seasoned cast goes about their roles in isolation" and they "never unite for what would have been an explosive celluloid moment."
Dulquer Salmaan, meanwhile, awaits the release of his pan-India flick 'King Of Kotha' on August 24.
