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 ...Written by
Capital cinema in Mumabi was converted into a mental asylum to shoot asylum scenes. See more »
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 »

ThANK GOD it was made for 1 hour 45 mins!! 40 crs joke fizzled within secs
Joker was a big joke by Shirish Kunder who thought of fooling the audience with his stupidity but made a fool of himself
In order to put back a village called Paglapur back on the map of India , Agastya creates a pretentious story of alien landing in his village creating an awareness to the politician and media.
Shirish Kunder ( Janemaan) had tweeted once about Sharukh Khan's RA.ONE -" 150cr firework fizzled out" . His tweet backfired at himself and result is such a terrible movie like "JOKER" . It was clearly evident why Akshaye Kumar chose to stay away from the promotion of this senseless movie. Direction is so lame that even a 4 year old kid can make a better film... Its high time that Kunder should go back to his editing days...there is nothing called screenplay in the film .. Art direction is decent re-creating the village though sometimes it looked funny. Cinematography is OK. Performances wise it is Shreyas Talpade who irritates you from the beginning till the end with his alien vocabulary. His character is shown as the person who can speak but still he is able to understand Alien's language in the climax... Gosh ..can it be worse than this ... It is Akshaye Kumar who is the only hope in the film .. but he should consider a script before signing any film. Sonakshi Sinha is wasted along with Darshan jariwala and Asrani.
Overall , senseless ..nonsense .. stupid .. illogical movie in every sense ... Never recommended 0.5 /5
