FIRST LOOK: MUAVZA TO RELEASE ON DEC 13
Muavza is a story about the irreparable corruption of an entire village. The simple, proud landowners, maati ke laal, get a taste of wealth never seen before and they embark on a journey of debauchery & decadence, only to lose everything in the end; their money, their self respect and their minds.
As the metropolis of New Delhi encroaches into the neighboring villages, the seemingly worthless patches of land hold the promise of millions for the pennyless landowners.
As the government plans to acquire these lands, the owners sniff huge compensations. And the promise of money brings a huge transformation in the lives of the poor landowners.
Muavza is rib tickling, super sarcastic, unique story of razor sharp wit focusing on the lives of Nuevo Rich of New Delhi & NCR. Their lifestyles, before & after; their identity crises & their raw approach to everything spin a tale which is warm, endearing, exceedingly funny and full of moral lessons.
At the center of the story are 2 gujjar families, the basoya’s of Aali village and the Nagar’s of Khaddar village. Their routine included daily fondling of cattle (for milk) & farming. With zero exposure to the more modern way of life, the families spent their lives trying to find their true identity in a village full of similar people. But then, the money arrives in form of ‘Muavza’.
The story starts when the village families have become wealthy. As the families start spending their new found wealth, we see the character up close. Their tasteless new houses, fleet of white Scorpios and absolutely hilarious way of spending money gives an insight about their characters.
The story goes back to the beginning of the ‘Muavza’ dream when a shrewd character, Becchu Bhai (a catalyst to the events to come) makes the villagers aware about the government compensation.
Becchu Bhai is a guy you would see in every mohalla, every office and every mall. He is that guy who is always selling something; from an Idea sim card to great ideas. Annu kapoor essays the role of Beechu bhai, the one of its kind, Gods also rethinks after making such characters “What did I make” . White payjama’s, white shirt, hawai chappals, but a Ray Ban Googles always decorating his witty eyes. Thin, slim, drives a moped (Fitfitiya). He is also known as Handpump in the village. “He who is visible only 4 feet but deep down he is 40 feet.” Best at talking, thin but commandable voice.
Becchu convinces the villagers to sell their land to builders on a higher price than what government will give them in the form of muavzaa when it acquires their pieces of land and the way he persuades them is outrageous in every sense.
One by one villagers start to sell parts of their properties to the builders on false promises of beechu bhai. This includes of central characters who also fall prey to beechu bhai’s sky high talks.
The village families are rich beyond dreams but its not all about the money, it is about the Chaudharahat!!
Buying fancy cars, sponsoring Ramleela, going to clubs & pubs in the village, throwing (KHA-PA-CHA – Khao Pio Ch*d*) parties is what these chaudharies start doing, with a passion. And the game of on-upmanship begins.
Kyunki ab lagi hai race, ki kaun kitna bada Chaudhary hai!!
Everything is going hunky dory for them and one day… beechu finds out that the government has decided not to acquire land from Aali village instead of that the government will acquire land from a different region altogether. He gets shocked but plays and altogether amazing game till the last day. The property prices dip sharply. The lenders from whom these families have taken loans against their costly lands are demanding their money back. Builders are running away from the region and these families are running away from the lenders.
The story reaches its climax with the downward spiral of the families. Becchu bhai cleverly slips away, but the Chaudhary’s still have something that they’ll never lose; their Chaudharahat!!
The film derives its humour from the stereotypes of Gujjar & Jat families from around Delhi NCR. Their unanswerable, unusual and out-of-this-world perceptions about themselves and the world make them extremely interesting to watch. We haven’t seen such characters on the Indian screen before. These characters are untouched, pure and extremely funny. Will our country cousins regain their senses before it is too late? Will the world famous Jaat sense of humor come to their rescue?
Starring Annu Kapoor, Akhilendra Mishra, Pankaj Berry, Kamlesh Gill and others, the film is produced by Jagdish Gupta and directed by Girish Juneja, Aslam Khan is the creative director of the film, while Fasahat Khan is the DOP.
Muavza is all set to release on December `13.
