Once upon a Time in Bihar has  hit the theatres without much ado. But the film seems to be just opposite;it is quite overdramatic. 

Plot:

Two Biharis have a notion that if the locals change their minds the society can change for the better. But unfortunately, they struggle to make ends meet and end up in abducting people to mint money fast. Well, what about their ideals? Watch the flick to find out. 

Analysis

Nitin Chandra Nitin Chandra is one of the most talented Indian d >> Read More... , the director, seems to have caught fancy by the films of Prakash Jha Prakash Jha, a director, film producer and screenw >> Read More... . He has delved into real life incidents and projected the drawbacks of the system. This "Once Upon" was a time when kidnapping was thriving in Bihar. 
You tend to connect with the youth who opt for unfair means to earn a decent living. The director mainly focuses on the issue of people from Bihar migrating to different states. He also analyses the stagnancy in the place. However, the audience may find it difficult to accept that the protagonists, who sermonize in the beginning, end up in unfair means. 

Certain dialogues are controversial and they may not strike the right chord with the audience. 

The flick is shot at locations in Bihar, and there is a sense of authenticity since local people are involved in it. 

Star Performance

The relatively less known Bihari locals put up decent performance. However, good actors like Ashish Vidyarthi Ashish Vidyarthi is a renowned Indian film perform >> Read More... and Pankaj Jha He is an actor as well as a painter, rising from M >> Read More... could have been given more scope. 

What's there?

1. The plot is relevant to today's world (owing to the elections in Bihar).
2. Sometimes you are inclined to connect with the characters of the movie, thanks to the relevance. 

What's not there?

1. The films' pace is quite slow. 
2. The second half seems to derail from the first half. 
3. Some scenes are silly.
3. The film shows to be very preachy. 
4. Though it is said that the movie was made in Hindi and Bhojpuri concurrently it seems like a dubbed version. 
5. Sometimes the flick appears to be quite over-dramatic. 

Verdict

A good attempt but it could have been presented well on screen.
