Storyline

Bangistan is a whip smart and uproarious satire on fundamentalism and the story of two unlikely terrorists, the antitheses of each other, with a common destructive goal. Concerned by the unrest in the name of religion, Subcontinental leaders of Muslims and Hindus, the Imam and the Shankaracharya, announce that they're attending the International Peace Conference in Krakow in a joint effort to help unite the two religions in perpetual harmony. Rival rabble-rousing ragtag organizations, the Islamist Al-Kaam Tamam and right-wing political party Maa Ka Dal separately recruit and brainwash Hafeez and Praveen to suicide bomb the conference so that they may continue to wield their local influence. After a rigorous, and hilarious, 'training' period the two men switch their religious identities to stay under the radar. Hafeez, the jihadi, masquerades as a conservative Hindu, Ishwarchand; while Praveen, the Hindu soldier, dons the garb of a practicing Muslim, Allahrakha. Focused on the mission,...

Satire on religion and terrorism. Two men (a Hindu and a Muslim) separately plot to bomb a peace conference.
25 December 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

At this point in the Hindi film industry, when it has become so easy to follow a convention and earn a few million, it's refreshingly stimulating to watch a movie that is not only formula-free and original but also is brilliantly made. Its clever cinematography, witty, dry humour (every scene packed with it) and inspiration-driven plot (just shy of being preachy or cloying) make the film a much-needed breath of fresh air. And every breath is, of course, laced with laughter thanks to the satirical approach to serious topics, with a sharp lack of insensitivity. Heavy irony, cheeky puns, and visual humour are only a few of the myriad devices employed with such skill that the only real let-down of the movie becomes its cringe-worthily, predictable end (that I shall very carefully not reveal)- which is the reason I scored this work of near-genius an 8 instead of a greater rank.
