Storyline

In 1947 when the maps of India and Pakistan were being drawn, an oversight ensured that the village of Paglapur didn't find a place in either country. The village had the distinction of housing the largest mental asylum in the region and in the mêlée that ensued during partition, the asylum inmates broke loose, drove away the villagers and established their own republic in Paglapur. And that's how it stayed for the next 60 years! While the world outside changed, Paglapur remained isolated, with no electricity, television or sanity. Now, decades after the world forgot this village, a NASA scientist of Indian origin, Agastya and his beautiful wife find themselves on the road to Paglapur. Agastya is working on a top secret project for creating a device to communicate with aliens. So why is he in a village whose colorful inhabitants include a man who speaks in gibberish, another who thinks he is a lamp post and everyone else who think Mahatma Gandhi is still around, fighting for ...

Trivia

The song "Kafirana" originally included the lyrics "I wanna fakht you." Indian censors objected, saying it sounded too much like the English profanity, so the lyric was changed to "I want just you." See more »

Goofs

Since Agatsya works in the US but was born in India, it can be assumed that he has (or had) an Indian passport. That means Paglapur exists in some government records. At some point, Agatsya must have been required to submit proof of his birth/residence. See more »

Horrible!!
30 September 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Joker is a pathetic movie! Yeah believe me guys,I'm saying it myself!!

Wondering 'WHY' Akshay Kumar is doing these type of movies?? You are a lotus in a dirt pond, Akki!

Sonakshi Sinha, Shreyas Talpade, Minissha Lamba I mean rest of all are wasted!

Thank god Akshay Kumar backed out from the promotion of Joker as he was cheated by the director Shirish Kunder.

I just hate Shirish Kunder after watching Joker. How can a man just make this type of a ridiculous movie! It was because of his wife that he got two biggest stars of Bollywood in his two films, but he doesn't deserve biggies anymore!!

I'll rate it 3/10, no need to tell but if you're still thinking to watch then go ahead Joker is your flick! :P
