The film depicts a story of pre-independent India. In 1920, an illiterate and unemployed young man, Manga(Kapil Sharma), dreams to join the police force but unfortunately fails each and every attempt he made. Later Manga falls in love with a girl named Sargi (Ishita Dutta) in his friend Heera’s marriage. Due to his unemployment, he was not able to marry her.
Once Manga cures Mark Daniel’s backache by using his unique ability to kick the back. Mark Daniel offered him a job in the police force by impressing with his work. After getting the job, Manga approaches Sargi’s grandfather Lalaji for their marriage but got rejected as her grandfather being a follower of Mahatma Gandhi is against Manga’s work with Britishers.
Later Raja Inderveer Singh ordered the Naku Guda villagers to shift to some other place as their he wants to build a liquor shop there. Being unaware of Mark Daniels and Raja Inderveer Singh’s deal, Manga decided to talk to Mark Daniel to stop this and tried helping the villagers but ended up ruining everything.
At last after getting the blame from the villagers, Manga decided to win his dignity back and will make things right.
The director of the movie wanted to depict a story of pre-independent India through a film without showcasing the freedom movement of India. Apart from the freedom tragedies and struggles, the film tried to focus on the lives of common people and their sufferings, happiness, joy, and everything they do and share with each other.
The film even has a total of 6 songs namely Oye Firangi, Sajna Sohne Jiha, Sahiba Russ Gayiya, Tu Jit Jawna, Gulbadan, Sahiba Male version.
It is originally a colonial-era shooted film that depicts a revolt executed by the villagers of Naku Guda against Britishers.
Though the movie portrayed that even after many struggles, love can overcome any challenge and proves the truth.
The movie was quite-amazing as it is not that boring and even non-Kapil fans can love this. Although it has not depicted the story in an engaging way but was good enough as Kapil Sharma was starred in the film, one of the finest comedians and actors of India.
