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 ...

Goofs

Since Agatsya is working in US but born in India, it can be assumed that he has (had) Indian passport. This implies that Paglapur does exist in some government records, as at some point in time, Agatsya must have been required to submit the proof of his birth/residence. See more »

A rare movie that touches upon very relevant underlying theme in today's context
3 September 2012 | by (Albany, NY) – See all my reviews

Don't be fooled by the poor rating and poor reviews this movie has got. This movie deserves far better. It is one of those rare Bollywood movies where a lot of thought has gone behind the 'title'. 'Joker' is not about any central character in the movie. Rather, it is about an important underlying issue in the context of the country.

The theme is – It has been more than 70 years since independence and yet nothing seems to have changed for the villages and villagers in the countries. No political party is willing to do anything for them. They are the forgotten lot in today's India by both the media and the politicians. That it could take something as outrageous as aliens landing in one of the villages for anyone to take a serious note of them or their plight is the central message of the movie. It is a very well-crafted story with all the actors playing their part efficiently. In short, this movie tries to convey an important message in a light hearted manner. So, don't go expecting a slapstick comedy because this is not a slapstick comedy but this movie provides for some funny moments. And all the songs in this movie are definitely worth lending your eyes to with 'Jugnu' being the pick of the lot.

In short – if you go expecting a slap stick comedy and fail to appreciate the underlying theme of the movie, you will give this movie a very low rating. Otherwise, you will definitely appreciate this movie as one of the better ones in recent times. You can do much worse than watching this movie!!
