One of the funniest movies I have seen in a long while
This movie is one of the best I have seen coming out of India. It has a very complex plot that is very well put together. The acting is top notch. The movie is also one of the funniest I have seen in a long time. It made me laugh and laugh and laugh. Highly Recommended !!! Someone wrote that it is inspired by another movie. Most movies have been inspired by some other movie or story. The movie is set in a small and very poor village in modern day India and is about a lottery ticket reseller whose customer wins 1 crore rupees. The man dies of happiness but not before he has told his estranged sister and half the village. What follows is a riot of side splittingly funny events as the lottery ticket reseller tries to keep it a secret and in the process make some money.
