An aspiring director targets a ruthless gangster because he wants to make a violent gangster film. His discreet attempts to research the gangster fail miserably. Finally when he gets caught snooping, things hit the fan.
A gentle girl born and brought up amidst the ever growing eco-social-consumeristic environment finds it difficult to fit in the society. She decides to take it hard on the people. What she does is the rest of the story.

Joker is a political satire which criticises the present political absurdities. Mannar Mannan (Protagonist), a rural villager, who self declares himself as President of India, always protests Government for all the absurdities happening around his village. Most of the time he is seen as a Joker. He's trailed at court for his various continuous acts. There comes his past, where he loves a beautiful girl from his near by village. The girl is willing to marry him only if he could build a toilet at his home. Government announces a toilet scheme through which all the villagers will get toilet at their homes throughout India. President plans to visit a village and he chose protagonist's village. What happens when the President comes? is toilet built at their home? did they get married? answers protagonist's act of declaring himself as President. At the end, the audiences are questioned for their involvement in opposing absurdities (who's the real Jokers)!
My expectation of the movie after seeing the trailer was, "not worth my effort to see it". Somehow my friend convinced me and we went as a group of 40 to the theater. In the beginning the movie was funny, the hero was a quirky fool and it was fun to see all that quirkiness. As time goes by Indian political system and how people have changed by it and have turned a blind eye towards basic common sense are shown through sad happenings. Though it was sad, the movie was worth the time I spent there (I hate when any movie goes totally sad). The movie is a good movie that many Indians would like as a group. Children might get uncomfortable and really affected by the sad scenes in the movie
