Storyline

Don Quixote is a gangster based in Mumbai, India. His dream is to take control of India, and sell it at an well-attended and much publicised auction. In order to fulfill this dream, he recruits five men - all resembling the President of India, and asks them to undergo vigorous training in order to take over as the President. That done, he selects one of them, Nathuram, eliminates the other four, and arranges the kidnapping of the President, with success. He than implants Nathuram as the President - and the stage is set for the biggest auction in Earth's history - when India will be auctioned to the highest bidder.

a farce on how India is being treated like a commodity
10 June 2009 | by parvati-balagopalanSee all my reviews

I think it was a great fun film because it was India's first farce. It was refreshing as it was different from the usual predictable movies with cardboard characters and in fact won many awards in Bengal. Indians who have a sense of humor loved it..so will you!Also Javed Jaffery and Shahrukh were great.Ketan Mehta is an interesting director and likes to experiment with his films, so it is always a pleasure to see what he will come up with next.Deepa Sahi too is a good change from the usual Hindi filmy style of acting. She dares to be different each time. Though people accused the film I hear of being anti nationalist, if you look closely it isn't at all. In fact it tries to say how some vested interests are hawking off the country!
