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

Akshay Kumar was very unhappy with the film and refused to promote it, even though it was made by his own production company. 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 »

Good family fun, light hearted comedy.
6 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a good family light-hearted comedy. It's in the same theme of malamaal weekly, and various other simple light-hearted comedies. This is not an alien sci-fi movie, do not watch it with that intention. The other reviewers are disappointed because they watched it through an intention of a sci fi movie, and were disappointed as it's not that. If you watch it as a light- hearted comedy it's a super hit! Definitely recommended a watch. The ending does justice to the movie, and in terms of quality, it has been up to the remarks made. I have to keep typing because this site has a minimum limit of words required which is totally lame, IMDb i'm looking at you!
