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)

The all powerful Chair
14 December 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Jan Gan is purportedly a tale of fiction, but does refer to Jawarharlal Nehru and his love for roses. It also takes a jab at former Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi's son, Sanjay Gandhi, when a reference is made to a birth-control herb called 'Sanjay Sanjeevni' - no doubt a clear reference to the excesses made during the draconian Emergency - which eventually led to the fall of the Mrs. Gandhi's Congress party during 1977, and enabled distributors to finally release this movie, as well as 'Nasbandi (1978)' (qv). (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0232164/)

Exposing the inner workings of Government (especially the bureaucratic questions heaped on Shabana when she takes five dead mice to collect her reward) and how things are manipulated for the individual betterment of politicians and their kith and kin - without any regard for the people who vote them in.

And of course there is the ultimate weapon of 'mass distraction' - blame all problems on the neighboring country.

And the second form of distraction is war.

This is indeed an accurate and hilarious attempt and worth a look.

Warning: It may cause some people to get very upset at their respective politicians.
