Agastya (Akshay Kumar) isa space scientist, working on the development of a communication system, to communicate with aliens. But Agastya loses the faithof his seniors and is allotted with a deadline of one month to conclude his project with some substantial results.
In the mean time Agastya isinformed by his girlfriend Diva (Sonakshi Sinha) about his father's illness. On hearing this they both reaches his native village Paglaapur, whose colorful inhabitants include a man who speaks in gibberish, another who thinks he is alamp post and everyone else who think that the World War II is still going on.
Soon after reaching there, Agastya finds that he was called on a false pretext ofillness by his father. On getting apprised about truth, Agastya decides to move back to US, but afterhearing the plight of the inhabitants of Paglapur, due to the brushing aside of the village by the government because of itsbeing absent from the demarcated map of India, he makes his mind to come out with some solution for the problem.
As the story proceeds, Agastya comes up with a quaint idea pertaining to the crop circle and arrival of aliens in his village, in order to fetch a recognition for his otherwise isolated village undergoing a plight of neglect ever since the independence.
With frames moving ahead,Agastya along with other villagers creates crop circle in Paglapur and spreads rumor about arrival of aliens in the village. And from their, amid tremendous media hype, takes over some hilarious sequences knitted around UFO and fictitious man made aliens.

Akshay Kumar does his part well, but we feel no NASA scientist would ever do such dramas and tamashaas to grab the Government's attention forthe prosperity of a neglected village. Sonakshiwasn't too convincing. The best one in Joker was none other thanShreyas Talpade. He was outstanding as Babban.
You can see Akshay and Sonakshi in some crazy, tacky attire that adds no humour. In fact, after watching out such brilliant stars in such crazy costumes, doing some insane acts in the film, we feel nothing except pitying them. The film also introduces us to some dirty, monstrous looking aliens that might just scareyou at a glance, unlike the cute, adorable Jaadu from
Koi Mil Gaya.
What's Gud
The music was quite good. Chitrangada's item number  adds spice and grabs many eyeballs. The movie's cinematography is quite impressive.
What’s Bad
  • Second half is boring..

Joker is one-time watch.Shirish kunder could make better movie.
