Story of ‘Joker’ is something like this. In 1947 when the maps of India and Pakistan were being drawn, an oversight ensured that the village of Paglapur didn’t find a place in either country. The village had the distinction of housing the largest mental asylum in the region and in the fight that ensued during partition, the asylum inmates broke loose, drove away the villagers and established their own republic in Paglapur, the village on whose backdrop the film has mostly been shot.
Agastya (Akshay Kumar) a researcher probing the existence of aliens in the universe comes to Pagalpur along with his wife Diva (Sonakshi Sinha). The story revolves round these two pivotal characters.
