Gulabi (Telugu: గులాబీ) is a 1995 Telugu musical film starring J.D. Chakravarthy and Maheswari in the lead roles. The film was directed by Krishna Vamsi and produced by Ram Gopal Varma and was co-produced by Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited.[1] Upon release, the film received positive reviews and declared a hit at the box office.


Gulabi is an action-packed love story set in the backdrop of girl-smuggling to Dubai. It is inspired from a real incident that came in news dailies when police arrested few Dubai-based businessmen trying to smuggle girls from Hyderabad.


It is one of those films that carved a new trend of film making in Telugu cinema. Excellent songs by Sasi Preetam, breath-taking cinematography by Rasool, stunning direction, action-packed narration and natural performances by the cast turned Gulabi into a big success. Every college-going student could relate to the characters. Characterizations are naturally etched.

Some segment of the audience identified that Gulabi had the touch of Ramgopal Varma, who is also the producer of the film. Krishnavamsi was depicted as a shadow under the guidance of Ramgopal Varma. Krishnavamsi proved his critics wrong with his future projects and got a brand name for himself.



The DVD rights of this movie sold to KAD Entertainment, who had also brought the home video copyrights for all the Telugu movies made by Ram Gopal Varma.
