She goes to the Superintendent of Police, Vikram Kapoor, to seek an escort to accompany her, but is cautioned that even police are reluctant to visit the areas she wants to tour. Kishu volunteers, she initially rejects him, but relents when he impresses her with his knowledge of Devi Maa Durga. Hoping to woo and win her heart, he is in for nothing but disappointment when he sees her in the arms of her Caucasian boyfriend, Mike. Then she is dramatically abducted and held for a ransom of Rs.1.50 Crores by unknown persons. Watch what impact this incident has on the local police as well as on Kishu and Mike.

nicely made
16 October 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

"There's nothing more dangerous than a Bihari in love" "Jo Dooba so Paar- It's love in Bihar", seems to highlight that fact throughout the movie. Anand Tiwary epitomises the gullible Romeo, who falls in love with the firang in town, chases her and tries to win her affection until a sudden turn of events. That's pretty much what the story revolves around

So why should you go for it? Well we could start with - It remains true at heart and does not try to be pretentious. The costume design is excellent and all the characters are brilliantly sketched out, right from Keshu (Tiwary)'s strict father, who berates and threatens to kill him on a memorable bridge scene, to the protagonist's gang of pals who hang around and help him out with his affair. They are all very sketched out and believable, and that only lends to the charm of the movie. The score is decent and the script is good with authentic dialogues, borrowing from the regional tongue. You may find the story too simple and possibly it could have done with a few more twists. But that would have taken away from what the director's intent appears to be. Tell it as it really is. On a conclusive note, it is the parts that are greater than the whole and the film will strike a chord with those who wish to explore this new place our cinematic experience is heading to. It will make a place for itself inside you, Go for it, with your Litti-Chokhas and maal puas in tow.
