Gulf, the title itself is anticipated to be as a story, based on the Gulf countries. This is what the film actually is. Director P. Sunil Kumar Reddy, is known to helm movies which are based on true stories. Like wise, Gulf, is all about those people who migrate to Gulf countries from the southern states, in search of employment and a better life. The story of Gulf, nutures from this context. This movie was released on the 13th of October. Here’s the review.
So the story builds up, beginning with Siva (Chetan Maddineni), who is one of those people desiring to migrate to Gulf. He bumps into Lakshmi (Dimple) in the flight. Both of them tend to like each other from the first meeting onwards. This first meeting turns into love at first sight for both of them. They board the flight to Gulf together in order to build a better living for themselves in that country. But, Lakshmi will be physically abused in Gulf. Both Lakshmi’s and Siva’s lives take a murky turn. All their dreams of achieving a better living will be shattered. Now, how will Siva and Lakshmi cope up with these difficult hurdles? What are the problems faced by the migrants in Gulf countries?
Chetan and Dimple did complete justice to their lead roles. Other actors like Posani Krishna Murali, Tanikella Bharani, Sana, Nagineedu, Nalla Venu, Santosh Pavan and Anil Kalyan proved their acting talents well in their respective characters.
Film maker P. Sunil Kumar Reddy, is a Nandi award winner. He has helmed the story in order to convey a social message to the audience. Relating to the South Indian migrants who faced various difficulties in the Gulf countries, is definitely an untold one. The cast and crew of the film had nailed this aspect. Also, the people who think that there will be a better life abroad than in the home country, this thought in particular, is concentrated well in Gulf.
Santosh Kalyan’s character
Anil Kalyan’s role
The fresh pair of the lead roles is unmatchable to the intensity of the script.
This film is worth watching. Gulf, is a basically like a biopic of those south Indians who migrated to Gulf countries. Go for it in theaters near you!
