Storyline

Raj Kishore is plagued by bad luck which also follows his longtime friends Junky and Chandu. Any venture the trio engage in results in losses or setbacks; even their fire-cracker shop burns down on its inaugural day. The trio fool Sanjana by making her fall in love with Raj and into getting them a bank loan to start a new package delivery business but her uncle, having similarly been fooled by them before, catches wind of them and demands their money back. The trio escape and inadvertently end up making their first delivery: a highly expensive sports car for Jhanvi, daughter of Raja Saahab and niece of WiFi Bhai. They deliver the car in a destroyed condition for which they are tortured by Raja Saahab and his goons. They offer their services as servants, a suggestion which WiFi accepts; he convinces Raja Saahab to hire them against their astrologer's wishes who is aware of Raj Kishore's bad luck. They get employed as disposable servants; Junky and Chandu are used for testing food that Raja Saahab's and WiFi's enemies may have poisoned while Raj Kishore is used as their decoy while traveling. In the process, Chandu and Jhanvi fall for each other.

During one of their traveling assignments, old enemies Bulli and Tulli Seth attack their convoy where it is revealed that WiFi is actually a coward. Fed up of their constant rivalry, businessman-turned-don Niraj Modi who absconded India after taking huge loans proposes to end their conflict by offering each party ₹700 crores to invest. By their continued stroke of bad luck, Raj Kishore, Junky and Chandu end up causing a fire that burns the whole stack of money. In a bid to save what's left of their money, Raja Saahab and WiFi send the trio to bet on their lucky horse. They instead overhear a conversation about another horse and bet on it which instead loses the race. Unable to pay Raja and WiFi, the trio escape with Jhanvi and Sanjana and her uncle following them. The group ends up on a glue truck where Jhanvi's lips get stuck to Chandu's cheeks and Sanjana and her uncle get stuck on their backs. They arrive in an abandoned house where they meet Kavya who has been staying there posing as a ghost after facing rejection in her acting career. There, Raj accidentally discovers a basement where Niraj Modi keeps his stockpiles of cash. The trio steal the money and arrive at Raja Saahab's and WiFi's house just when they are about to be executed by Modi for not paying them. They settle the money and buy out Niraj Modi's properties.

Eventually, Modi discovers that the trio pulled a fast one on him by stealing his own money to buy his properties. He arrives at Raja Saahab's house and threatens to kill them all. Raj Kishore reminds him that his money is not really his own but stolen from India and Raj Kishore himself is an ex-employee of one of the banks Modi took loans from and thus was one of many people who lost jobs because of Modi. Raj also goads Modi's henchmen into keeping the money for themselves. A skirmish ensues involving two escaped lions and concludes with detectives arriving to take Modi into custody. Raj, Junky and Chandu reconcile their differences with Raja Saahab and WiFi.

Critic Review

An out-of-luck youngster Raj Kishore (John Abraham) and his friends Junky (Arshad Warsi) and Chandu (Pulkit Samrat) are hired by gangsters Raja (Saurabh Shukla) and WiFi Bhai (Anil Kapoor) in a bid to recover their damages. But this is just the recipe for disaster that brings in more destruction.

At one point in the film, John Abraham’s character Raj declares, “Zaroori nahi ki har cheez ka matlab ho.” This is perhaps the guiding light for the story, screenplay, dialogues and pretty much everything that goes on in Pagalpanti. The problem is not the fact that it is a slapstick comedy, but the fact that there’s little or no semblance of a coherent narrative. From the very first scene, the film is armed with loud action and dialogues trying to be funny, but far from that. And there are a lot of characters, one sillier than the other. While Anil Kapoor once again plays the flashy gangster with his trademark loudness, Arshad Warsi is the funny guy with witty one-liners. John Abraham exudes charm despite his goofy character and Pulkit Samrat once again plays up on his boyish charm. But the three heroines are reduced to looking pretty and mouthing silly lines such as, “Papa kehte hain kiss karne se main pregnant ho jaungi.” Among the character artistes, Saurabh Shukla is impressive as the bumbling mobster who is more funny than scary. There is also a character named Niraj Modi (Inaamulhaq) evidently fashioned on the fugitive businessman Nirav Modi. With an unconvincing Gujarati accent, his character comes off as yet another stereotypical cliché.

Director Anees Bazmee, along with his co-writers, throw in everything into the mix. From exciting car chases to high-octane destruction scenes, from African lions to an entire act involving industrial strength glue – all shot beautifully in the picturesque UK. But nothing sticks, thanks to a weak script. There are far too many songs placed randomly that only add to the runtime. Towards the end, it even meanders into a patriotic subplot that seems more forced.

Even with an enviable starcast and heavy-duty action, Pagalpanti never really manages to pull off more than a few laughs.
