Hu Tu Tu 1999
Based on one of his own short stories, the film is Gulzar's statement on the nation's pet hate - politics. Hu Tu Tu is about the game politics plays with the life of an ordinary, close-knit family from Shewri village in Maharashtra. Panna (Tabu) sees her mother Malti Barve (Suhasini Mulay) transform from a schoolteacher to a chief minister.
As Malti begins to enjoy the power that comes with politics, her ties with the family begin to disintegrate. Alienated, the impetuous Panna finds her soulmate in Aditya (Sunil Shetty), the equally disenchanted son of a corrupt industrialist (Kulbhushan Kharbanda).
One day Panna is abducted by Aditya and his group of revolutionaries, and held by them. It is there that Panna learns about the atrocities committed by her mom in the name of politics, and it is then she must decide whether to be loyal to her mom, or take the side of Aditya and the revolutionaries.
