The director of the film, Chandraprakash Dwivedi (famous for his Doordarshan serial, “ Chanakya”), faced some trouble getting the censor certificate, as the characters resemble some serious real life characters.
Aslam is a puncturewala in a small village called, Fatehpur, in Rajasthan. His wife, Hameeda (Mona Singh) is a footwear seller. He also has a mistress, who seeks sex with him and Saeeda ( Ekavali Khanna) sells bangles. His neighbor, who is his friend-turned-foe, threatens to kill him.
One day, the Prime Minister of India, who only speaks English, has a program to visit a nearby dargah and Aslam has to be the Khadim there during his visit. After seeking his blessings in the dargah, the PM asks him to request anything. He tells the PM that he is in serious dangerous as he is receiving threats from his neighbor (Mukesh Tiwari).
The PM misinterprets that it is some terrorist threatening him and accommodates Zed category security to him.
Now his life is in distress as he can’t meet Saeeda and can’t even attend morning’s nature’s call without the security. Though his wife feels frustrated in the beginning, she later starts adjusting.
As there is always security around him, he feels as if he is a V.I.P. and tries to stand as a competitor in the elections.
How he failed in the elections? How he realizes the scenario and brings his feet back to the ground?
Please watch the film to know.
Though the plot of the movie is completely fictitious, there are resemblances to various real-life characters in it. The plot may be anticipated, but the comedy after the allocation of the Zed-category security to the protagonist can make us laugh.
Adil Hussain as Aslam has done a good job. Kulbhushan Kharbanda has done a phenomenal performance as he resembles PM Modi.
1. The satire in the present political scenario has worked out.
2. The comedic timing is well-executed.
3. The performances of the actors are excellent.
WHAT'S NOT THERE?
1. Swearing in the film, though camouflaged by some other words, is understandable and irrelevant. Must have used it to entertain the audience.
2. The story tries to satire the present scenario of providing security to everyone, but fails to state it implicitly.
A good satirical movie with some fast-paced comedy, but fails to prove its potential.
