Storyline

Satara-based petty road-works contractor, Sachin Tichkule, faces challenges when the Satara Municipal Corporation puts a hold on his payment. He decides to sue them, while his extended family deal with the crisis of a recently-collapsed bridge resulting in 65 deaths. If matters were not bad enough, the new Municipal Commissioner is none other than his estranged girlfriend/ex-collegian, Gehna Ganpule. Sachin had abused and assaulted her in Mumbai a few years ago, and she is now determined to blacklist him at any and all costs. While comically dealing with indolent employees, his sister's marriage, an elephant, a road-roller &c. he lands in even more hot water when the local police get ready to prosecute him for alleged Sexual Molestation, as well as Assault and Threats to Kill Gehna's brother.

This film is definitely under-rated!
17 April 2012 | by (China) – See all my reviews

I am rating it a 10 because it is under rated.

First of all, it is very funny. Those actors know how to be funny. There were two funny scenes that I had to watch more than once. The father's painting got blackened, and the guy who got all mixed during his two phone conversations. I also laughed hard when the road roller was running backward. The chicken music was also funny when it was used during the bathroom peeking scene.

It is amazing that even though the Indian economy is not as good as China's, but their filmmakers are making impressive realistic films about bureaucracy than any Chinese directors can ever make! I am certain that these kinds of things are happening in mainland China right now, bridges collapsing, roads that need to be fixed constantly due to corruption, etc. However, Chinese film directors can never make any films like this one due to communist censorship. This is another film which Chinese directors should all watch, and make one of their own.

Here are a few famous quotes that I wrote down.

1. So if you are benefiting from it, then let us reap some benefits as well. If we benefit the country will progress, who cares about the country's progress? We are the country.

2. Only dishonest and cheat people can lie peacefully in this country.

3. I am allergic to bullshit. Minister's lecture.- bullshit. He'll give food to everyone. bullshit. We will drink clean water, bullshit.

We have the power in our hands and legs. We are not less than anyone. O thorn of the country listen to me. Why do you fill your pockets? If he gets a chance, he'll sell the whole country.

New roads and bridges will be built, bullshit. We won't get stuck in the traffic, bullshit. The work will be done on time, bullshit.
