Why Cheat India Movie Storyline

Satyendra “Sattu” Dubey is studying for an engineering entrance test and resides in a rented home in Kota. He then returns to his family’s home in Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh, where he lives with his parents, older sister Nupur Dubey, and grandmother. Sattu does well in the exams and receives a 287th-place finish. Sattu and his pals go to a movie theatre to celebrate, but they are urged to vacate their seats by a few politicians who want the theatre to themselves. Rakesh Singh, who is also present in the same hall, refuses to do so and engages in a brawl, resulting in his detention, as well as that of Sattu, who is caught up in the brawl.

Rakesh visits Sattu’s residence after being bailed out and offers him his phone number, telling him to call him because he has a proposal Sattu would be interested in. Sattu contacts him at a restaurant the following day and asks him to offer entrance tests for applicants seeking college admissions in return for 50,000 each paper, which Sattu agrees to; this strategy makes him a lot of money. However, he begins to spend money lavishly as he begins to experiment with narcotics and commit fleshly crimes.

Why Cheat India Movie Box Office Collection

The title of the film was changed in January 2019 owing to a last-minute protest from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). It was originally titled Cheat India before being renamed Why Cheat India. However, it was released in Pakistan as Cheat, with a 128-minute duration, and in India with a 121-minute runtime. Ironically, this is one of his most well-received recent flicks. Why Cheat India has a very low occupancy rate of roughly 5%. The film has grossed $8.66 crore in the domestic market.

Why Cheat India Movie Review

What stands out is Emraan Hashmi’s portrayal of Rakesh, who is cunning and confident. With confidence and ease, the actor gets it off in each shot. Emraan’s charisma and energy keep you fascinated despite the fact that most of the words are like a succession of punches begging for claps. Shreya Dhanwantary and Snigdhadeep Chatterjee’s young looks are suitable for the roles of naive individuals.

The picture aims to be amusing without being clever. There’s a recurring joke about the actress who plays Hashmi’s chatty wife, but the humour isn’t about what she says, but rather about how much she speaks. There are a few self-contradictory old-school characters, such as an officer who works in a police station writing FIRs while announcing himself as a part of the Special Forces, but no notable lines.

Why Cheat India’s narrative and premise have a lot of promise, and if the implementation was crisper and more consistent, this one might go to the next level. Despite the story’s shortcomings, the movie and its numerous themes give sufficient to keep you amused.
