Joker is a political satire which criticises the present political absurdities. Mannar Mannan (Protagonist), a rural villager, who self declares himself as President of India, always protests Government for all the absurdities happening around his village. Most of the time he is seen as a Joker. He's trailed at court for his various continuous acts.

There comes his past, where he loves a beautiful girl from his near by village. The girl is willing to marry him only if he could build a toilet at his home. Government announces a toilet scheme through which all the villagers will get toilet at their homes throughout India. President plans to visit a village and he chose protagonist's village. What happens when the President comes? is toilet built at their home? did they get married? answers protagonist's act of declaring himself as President. At the end, the audiences are questioned for their involvement in opposing absurdities (who's the real Jokers)!

Raju Murugan's Next Film Titled Joker

Director Raju Murugan, whose first film Cuckoo (2014) came in for praise from various segments of society, has now titled his next film Joker. Shot by cinematographer Chezhiyan, the film, produced by Dream Warrior Pictures, has music by Sean Rolden and lyrics by Yugabharathi.

Raju Murugan talks about Joker

Journalist-turned-filmmaker Raju Murugan, who made an acclaimed debut in Cuckoo, is ready with his sophomore film Joker, which subtly talks about the problems of globalisation. “Nobody talks about poverty any more, maybe because everybody now has a smartphone. But do all of them have access to toilets?,asks Raju Murugan.

Joker is about politics

Journalist-cum-filmmaker Raju Murugan made a name for himself with Cuckoo. Then happened Thozha for which he wrote dialogues. Now he is all set to direct his next. And this time he would be doing a political film.

Cuckoo Raju Murugan’s next titled 'Joker'

The word ‘Joker’ distinctly goes synonymous with more diversified characters. The one with more deadly Heath Ledger and Raj Kapoor from Mera Naam Joker, the list keeps going on, but the one ‘Cuckoo’ fame Raju Murugan is depicting is surely an exceptional one. The director unveiled the official announcement of the title for his upcoming film ‘Mannar Mannan Engira Joker’.

Raju Murugan’s Joker is a socio-political satire

Raju Murugan, who earned appreciations for his debut film Cuckoo, is ready with his second project Joker, starring renowned supporting actor Somasundaram of Aaranya Kaandam and Jigarthanda fame in the lead role. Produced by Dream Warrior Pictures, Joker has music composed by Sean Roldan and is billed as a socio-political satire.
