The film follows the lives of two blundering terrorists on a mission to change the world. The young guns with lofty ideologies but ordinary talent keep pace with a series of serendipitous high-energy, fast-paced, and exceptionally entertaining events that have a huge impact on world peace.

Bangistan is one more movie on Hindu-Muslim harmony and the futility of fighting over religion. I have seen one movie too many on this subject in the past year and admittedly am a bit bored of the whole thing, however important it may be.
The only difference in the film is that the Hindu and Muslim are from the same country Bangistan, a country like a pre- Independence India where Hindu and Muslims live in different parts of the country and hate each other. Once they have said this so that they are not pointing figners at either country, the pretence is put to rest and we can watch the rest of it as if it was about India and Pakistan slugging it out.
The movie starts out as a sort of a comedy but then becomes deadly sincere as if the team suddenly realised that Hello! This is a SERIOUS topic. It then has Ritesh using his serious face (the same one that he used in Ek Tha Vilain) and Pulkit gets to show us on screen what he learnt in drama class.
The editing is pretty choppy with Jacqueline Fernandes (guest appearance) making a curious statement about her parents not being around on their anniversary. We have to guess that they died in a terror attack on their aaniversary or something. There are also gaps in logic such as the two terrorists being on the run from the law in prison uiforms but stopping at a gas station to buy a whole new set of clothes. Where did they get the cash? Or they are wanted terrorists on the run and they just enter a world conference as if they are visiting a coffee shop.Things like these affect the credibility of the movie and make you tired.
Overall, the movie moves at a decent pace and there is enough action to keep you occupied though not interested. But don’t go by any posters. The movie is not funny at all though there are some attempts at clever humour at the start which are abandoned later. Bang bang your gun at this one and let it disappear.
