It's really hilarious...it deals political content in very humourous way..it spoof some soap operas..every single characters have life to their role... specially the main protagonists..it's not a stereotype movie...it breaks into new level of humour... script with some really good imagination. The theatre which i saw were absolutely laughing in all moments
