Joker is a movie about Agastya (Akshay Kumar), a NASA scientist who is researching on existence of aliens in the universe. When he returns to his village “Paglapur” in India with his wife (Sonakshi Sinha), he finds his village isolated that is lack of facilities like electricity and water. So he tries to overcome this problem but no body is ready to help him because everyone says “this village does’t belong to us or our state” (as it is not available on the map of India). Therefore to make the village “Paglapur” popular and to bring it back on the map of India Akshay plays a trick and spreads the rumour about Aliens arriving in the Village.
Joker is not as good as expected. First half of the movie is not that bad but the best thing is that it is not lengthy, just 1 hr 50 mins only. Therefore it may not disappoint you. Akshay Kumar is ofcourse the best part of the movie and Sonakshi Sinha also did well. Overall, you can say it is a one time watch movie.
