The story of the film set in the 1920's when British government rules India, this time was the same when the Mahatma Gandhi was doing protests movements against the British government. Especially, the Non-cooperative movement was in the full power that time. The story is of Mangta Raam alias Mangu (Kapil Sharma) who is not aware of changes that are happening around him.
Well, Mangta Raam is unemployed but his leg has a special power and it is like the old tradition of India, that whoever had pain in the back can get relief if any person who was born upside down kicks his back. His this speciality helps him and his destiny reaches him to British Officer Daniel who is impressed with his this technique. He even gets a job in government, but the things get turned wrong when Mangu's lover Saargi (Ishita Dutta) denies marrying him as he works for the British government. Now many turning points come and the story finally reaches its comic end.
This film of Rajiv Dhingra is set in British ruling time, however, his direction has not been so good with the film. The film is very slow and it has stretched to 2.40 hours, it is unreasonable. Dhingra is even failed to make his actors give their best in performances. The role that has written for Kapil doesn't even suit him.
Kapil Sharma is a great comedian that is known and there is no doubt about it, but he is failed as Mangu maybe because his role has most emotional scenes than comic scenes. Even the actor who has played the role of British officer has done overacting many times.
Jatinder Shah has given music in the film, and he has tried to make the music like Anushka Sharma's Phillauri but he totally failed to give any memorable song to it.
If you are a huge fan of Kapil Sharma and you are able to watch only Kapil Sharma, you are not interested in the story then you can watch it once.
