So, I went in with zero expectations and was out with negative recommendations :)
*Spoiler alert - in case you really think these can spoil the movie experience any further*
The story starts in Paglapur at the time when Britishers ruled India. When a British officer was making his tour to chalk out all the towns in the map, all the mental patients in this town fled from their keeping and threw out everyone sane from there. Fearing his death, the officer didn't make it to the town and hence the town never made its mark on the map. Impressive.
Scene-2 a NASA scientist is developing an instrument to communicate with aliens. Those who have funded him are looking for results which Akshay is unable to produce. Meanwhile his live-in girlfriend Sonakshi receives a call from India and is informed that Akshay's father is terribly ill and breathing his last. Immediately they rush to India, Paglapur
This is where everything really falls apart, what with everyone falling off trees and the scenes looking so artificial. Then on proceeds all the 'maddening' events that proves that the town is rightly called what it is called. Asrani plays his role well as an English teacher with jokes like 'He has come gone' Wo aake gaya and such of the same kind.
Then events so proceed that Akshay has to free the people of his town and make them self dependent. This village does not have the basic infrastructure for electricity, water. He then goes and talks to ministers who are obviously corrupt and not interested in the town since it is not part of anyone's region.
So, to get the public support and to get everyone to know about the town he stages an artificial sighting of a crop circle. Obviously the press comes as soon as they can and then there is drama and some more drama and more artificial aliens and more drama but no acting at all.
Humor-doesn't tickle at all
So, money wasted!
