Synopsis: Bangistan is a whip smart and uproarious satire on fundamentalism and the story of two unlikely terrorists, the antitheses of each other, with a common destructive goal. Concerned by the unrest in the name of religion, Subcontinental leaders of Muslims and Hindus, the Imam and the Shankaracharya, announce that they're attending the International Peace Conference in Krakow in a joint effort to help unite the two religions in perpetual harmony. Rival rabble-rousing ragtag organizations, the Islamist Al-Kaam Tamam and right-wing political party Maa Ka Dal separately recruit and brainwash Hafeez and Praveen to suicide bomb the conference so that they may continue to wield their local influence. After a rigorous, and hilarious, 'training' period the two men switch their religious identities to stay under the radar. Hafeez, the jihadi, masquerades as a conservative Hindu, Ishwarchand; while Praveen, the Hindu soldier, dons the garb of a practicing Muslim, Allahrakha. Focused on the mission,

There are a hundred billion galaxies in the universe, bhaijaan.

So what?

And in each galaxy there are two hundred billion stars.

And around each star, countless planets.

Get to the point!

My point is that you could live anywhere else, but no!

You had to be born here!

Watch your tongue, bhaisahab! This land is ours!

I'll tell you whose land this is...

You may be frightened on hearing these hateful voices.

After all, your country is eternally peaceful.

But in a forgotten corner of the world, there exists a land...

Where violence is a way of life.

Such enmity, that bullets and bombs go off at any time.

Perhaps that is why it has come to be known as...

Behold the icy peaks of North Bangistan.

The polite gentleman who kept saying 'bhaijaan bhaijaan' - his home is here.

It is cold enough to freeze their bones...

But the people here are always hot-headed.

And the affectionate fellow who kept saying 'bhaisahab'...

Hails from here. South Bangistan

There are many doves here - Messengers of peace.

Too bad there isn't any peace, though.

But in their midst, there are also two friends who believe that...

Through co-operation, peace can be achieved here even today.

They are known to us as the Shankaracharya and the Imam.

Please leave me alone. Yes, sir.

Greetings Shankaracharyaji. My apologies for disturbing you.

Oh Imam sahab, rules would pointless if they weren't broken.

You must have heard about the riots?

They have misused and misinterpreted our faiths yet again.

They will never understand.

You and I can help them understand.

If we declare peace together they will definitely listen to us.

The upcoming World Religions' Conference in Poland...

How about making an address from there?

There can be no better occasion!

Then let's prepare a proposal and...

And send it to all the Conference attendees.

Let's do it.

Let's see, I've got everyone covered except...

Would you happen to have the new Pope's email ID?

Email?! The Pope and I follow each other on Twitter.

We've exchanged a bunch of DMs. I suggest you make an account as well.

As you say, my dear friend.

Good evening, good evening!

Thomas... Allison...

Hello... Jerry...

Have a good day sir...

That cheap man was hitting on me!

Yeah yeah, just work on the wool.

Whew, met the quota for the day.

Okay, thank you!

Haatim bhaijaan, haven't I told you not to call me here!

I can make calls from here but not answer any.

Yes, I will be at the meeting on time -


Hello? Hello...

May I speak with Katherine Polanski please?


Good Afternoon! This is Harold...

Calling from Dream Savers personal loan company.

We provide loans for all your needs ma'am.

My needs... hmm...

Do you have any?

Oh yes, I have needs. Please tell me about them ma'am.

I feel lonely... Do you understand?

No ma'am, I'm never lonely... Dream Savers is an MNC, you know...

Give me the phone!

Hello? Are you there ma'am? Hello...?

Who is this?

Who is this?

This is Polanski. Now who the hell is this?

Sir! I was just asking ma'am if she is interested in-

Interested, you punk? What is your name, you telemarketing pig?

Harold... Tell me your real name!

Hafeez bin Ali, sir...

Hafeez bin Ali...

You are flirting with a terrorist.

Andrzej, he's not a terrorist. He's just a- Shut up!

Listen to me, you mention ma'am once more...

And I will personally send a drone to Afghanistan to blow you!

To blow you up.

Sir, there's been a miscommunication! I'm from Bangistan.

Nonsense! Remember what we did to Osama bin Laden? Remember?

I'm going to ask Mossad to do the same to you!
