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,...

Gem of a Comedy...
8 August 2015 | by ajstingSee all my reviews

Finally an Unbiased Movie, where there is no bashing, no crazy self obsessed Godmens, no sense less jokes, no Angst..... What does it have then? Pure Comedy: you'll literally keep laughing the whole time that to comfortably with Family around, this is movie is nice example where Comedy Movies can be done without Using Explicit Language, Sex Jokes, Booze & Dope References...it's Such a rarity now a days Nice Message: Lack of Understanding about each other is keeping everyone apart, Education this days should really teach each other about the Cultures & Values of each Religion... all Extremists are infatuated & Caught up in wrong understandings & using wrong logic for there own cause, some how Spiritual Values are been lost & only Rituals are left... And all this put forth in Happy Go Lucky Mood, Really good Acting & Direction........it's a nice Breather between all routine cliché movies... A total Entertainer & Paisa Wasool.... I Wonder Why Movies with such Nice Message & Feel Good nature is Banned in Pakistan, UAE....
