If you thought Riteish and Pulkit’s Bangistan would simply milk a concept already established in Tere Bin Laden and Welcome 2 Karachi, think again. Bangistan is a much more fleshed out satire exploring the hollowness of religious rivalry. Set in the fictional land of Bangistan, the movie introduces Riteish as a Muslim terrorist planning to blow up a peace conference between leaders of warring religious backgrounds. On the other hand, you have Pulkit playing a Hindu terrorist out with the same mission.
The best part is the fact that both the groups are seemingly led by the same actor, indicating the similarity between such extremists irrespective of their religion. And then the humor kicks in when you realize what total morons our wannabe terrorists are. And of course you have the lovely Jacqueline Fernandez looking charming as ever. With some elements of the hugely popular UK film Four Lions, Bangistan appears to be a superior religious satire. Let’s hope the movie lives up to the trailer.
