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)!
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, 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.
