The Joker movie was released in cinemas internationally on August 31, 2012, to mediocre to poor reviews. Just at the box office, this picture got labelled a “Disaster.” This movie’s trailer was released on July 11, 2012, and that it was released in theatres alongside Cocktail.
Agastya (Akshay Kumar) is just a scientist who is researching here on the construction of an extraterrestrial communication network. However, Agastya lost his superiors’ trust and therefore is given a one-month ultimatum to complete his program having visible results.
Meanwhile, Agastya learns about his father’s sickness through his lover Diva (Sonakshi Sinha). When they learn of all this, they travel to his hometown of Paglapur, where they meet his sibling (Shreyas Talpade), who talks in gibberish, a child that believes he is indeed a lamppost, and everybody else who believes World War II still is happening on then and fears the Nazis.
Shortly after arriving, Agastya discovers out his dad had summoned him underneath the false pretence of sickness. They summoned Subset of the original in order for him to improve the community and link towards the outside universe.
After discovering the truth, Agastya chooses to return to the United States, however after learning well about the misery of residents of Paglapur, who have been ignored by that of the government owing to the village’s absence from the delimited map of India, he resolves to seek a solution to this issue.
As the narrative progresses, Agastya turns up with such a cute concept involving a crop circle and aliens visiting his hamlet in order to gain respect for his usually secluded community, which has been neglected following independence.
Even as frames go, Agastya, along with many other villagers in Paglapur, constructs a crop circle and circulates tales of aliens arriving inside the hamlet. The film then moves on to some funny episodes revolving around UFOs and fictional man-made aliens, all set against a backdrop of massive media frenzy.
Finally, the joke well about phoney aliens is discovered, and genuine aliens appear at the end of the film to present the town with a present of oil.
