Kaagaz 2021

A biographical comedy-drama on Lal Bihari – a poor farmer from a small village in Uttar Pradesh – who was declared dead on official paper (or Kaagaz as the title goes) but he fought the corrupt system for 18 long years to get his name and self-respect restored in the Govt. records.

Pankaj Tripathi, in the lead role, is outstanding. So is Monal Gajjar as his wife. Director Satish Kaushik, who also plays a pivotal character, has lent his film a nice comic touch even as he exposes the serious rot in our system where a greedy relative can bribe a Government official to declare Lal Bihari dead just to usurp his property.

Later, Bihari forms a political party of all such “dead on paper” mistakes and contests elections with help from his local constituency MLA. A perfectly cast Mita Vashisht, playing that role brilliantly.
