Set in 1921 pre-independent India, this period film is a languid love story served with a pinch of patriotism. It tells the story of Manga( Kapil Sharma), who isn’t bothered by the British atrocities. One day his talent of healing people with a ‘kick’ on the bottom lands him a job with British authorities. However, it doesn’t go down well with his lover’s (Ishita Dutta) family, who thinks Manga will end up becoming like them.
The plus point is that the film opens with a voice-over from Amitabh Bachchan about Manga’s journey of realization and winning back the love and respect of his lady.
The film is downright insipid in its treatment of both the characters and plotline. Thanks to the unconvincing pairing of Kapil and Ishita on the screen, their romance looks very forced on screen. The film ends up looking like a hurriedly done job of rehashing Lagaan
You will end up suffering if you go to see this so called comedy with moves at a snail’s pace for almost over two and a half hours. Kapil ought to stop producing or acting in films and go back to trying his hand at stand-up comedy
