Storyline

Elections are soon to be held in Jan Gan, and the two main rivals are Bhikharimal and Garibdas, who are contesting under their symbols of a horse and a cycle. Then Meera and Gopal recruit a poor male, Gangaram, who assists his employer to sell fake herbs and medicines, including a birth-control pill 'Sanjay Sanjeevni', to stand for elections. Armed with a tonic-shot of Netagiri; a pill for Revolution; and a needle-shot of Socialism, Gangaram competes to be the next president with a symbol of a car. Meera then bribes the two main competitors and gets them to withdraw from the race, thus ensuring an easy win for Gangaram, who is then elected President. On his very first day, Gangaram learns that it is more practical to worship his Kursee, as well as listen to it's 8 Dictums. Then he decides to live it up during the daytime, and sleep with his busty Personal Secretary, Ruby Dixsana, at night. He then sets about to woo a dumb and naive woman, ironically named Janta (Public), and then ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

KKK - politics in India.... the real picture....!!!
23 July 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

KKK - It was released 3 years before i was born... excellent star cast... theatrical presentation one of the most controversial movies ever made in India... the producers were only able to release it after the fall of Indira Gandhi's govt. in 1977.....

and i watched it 34 years after it was made.. and still can relate everything to the present scenario in 2012.... the PM and presidential elections... babas and dharnas.... corruption and dumb public... influential businessmen.... and the age old money making business called politics...

Everyone may not like it since its not as fast paced as today's lightening cinema.... but a gem according to me

Sometimes.... I wonder.... weren't we better off in the times of kings, maharajas, sultans and nawabs... at least the power and money was being exchanged through one source...
