It is 1942. On one side revolution is in the air in a pre-independent India with Gandhi announcing the Quit India movement and on the other hand rest of the world is burning in the flames of World War 2, spear-headed by one of the greatest dictators of all times.
In a wholly unique, hilarious tale of ”Mukaam Dehru, Jilaa Nagaur” we witness a chance meeting of an uninvited guest, Adolf Hitler, and a bewildering array of characters trying to put up a ridiculous play in a remote village of Dehru forgotten in one dusty corner of Rajasthan.
In a cauldron are put Hitler and his loyal secretary gobbles, two British spies, an over enthusiastic young revolutionary fighting for independent India, a quack who invents medicines at the snap of his fingers, a Shakespeare loving British police officer, a ghost fearing local constable, a film struck director directing a play in Marwadi, a starry eyed young girl waiting to be a heroine, a barber trying hard to mug his lines and a house wife aspiring to be a political leader.
What follows is a deliciously funny exploration of mistaken identities and a disastrous rehearsal of an equally disastrous play , all woven together in one crazy blend of history and fiction.
