A light-weight but likeable comedy – a massala movie but still a good watch.

In 1947 when the maps of India and Pakistan were being drawn, an oversight ensured that the village of Paglapur didn’t find a place in either country.

The village had the distinction of housing the largest mental asylum and in the melee that followed partition, the asylum inmates established their own republic.

During the next 60 years the world outside has changed but Paglapur remains the same, Now, a scientist (Akshay Kumar) working on a project to communicate with aliens, finds himself in Paglapur – where a man speaks in gibberish, another thinks he is a lamp post and everyone thinks Mahatma Gandhi is still around!.
