Joker is a political satire which criticises the present political absurdities. Mannar Mannan (Protagonist), a rural villager, who self declares himself as President of India, always protests Government for all the absurdities happening around his village. Most of the time he is seen as a Joker. He's trailed at court for his various continuous acts. There comes his past, where he loves a beautiful girl from his near by village. The girl is willing to marry him only if he could build a toilet at his home. Government announces a toilet scheme through which all the villagers will get toilet at their homes throughout India. President plans to visit a village and he chose protagonist's village. What happens when the President comes? is toilet built at their home? did they get married? answers protagonist's act of declaring himself as President. At the end, the audiences are questioned for their involvement in opposing absurdities (who's the real Jokers)!

Reflecting Truth: If you want to know the reality and humanity around you .. Watch this

Hello Guys, If you want to know the reality and humanity which is around us in India / your street / next street. Watch this movie.

Magnificent story telling about today state of poverty. where the justice goes for poor people vs mighty.

We are all in selfish life, where we look for our slice of bread (including me), but is this right?.

Only mighty can get it everything. All other people are coming to earth to just die with economic inabilities. I am sure , I am in very self interested society, where always repeating our self as donator for the big NGO's via our company/ some checks.

I think, giving money will not solve the poverty issue in India. We have to give ourself to help our people. Via giving Education/literature, Clean society and dedicated timing.

But what government doing it. You are taking my 30% of the money as incometax, but not doing anything for the society.

I don't need clean road/ biggest infrastructure, WiFi... for the IT guys who is earning lakhs and lakhs of rupees.

Do something to the poor people with my incometax (30%) to the people who doesn't have schools/roads. But school with proper teachers.

They have to come-up and live a normal life. Otherwise India will grow like elephant leg disease. Only one side will live luxury life and other side will die as they born.

Hats off Raju Murugan.

But don't betray me by taking any other bullshit movie due to some commercial Benifits. We need you to take some thing like this movie. I hope definitely you will get some money.

It is also with our people. Never give anything who is doing good for the society. It will go behind, Mass and branding.

For me, you are brand ambassador, because you reflected the truth.

You slapped me at climax. Yes I am Joker.

I am saluting you and the character fight for justice (old man and the group). They given the life to your characters. All are gems in acting.

Jai Hind.

Thanks Nithyanantha Babu Sundaram
