Movie Review: MSG The Messenger (2015)

½☆☆☆☆
Box Office: Flop


msg2-thumb-300xauto-52881The film starts off with a ‘sparkling’ introductory song of Guruji aka Pitaji (Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan) and old footage of Indian political leaders. Guruji is an all rounder who, besides being a ‘Pitaji’ to everyone, is also an ace footballer, miracle worker, patriot, rapper and above all… a ‘farishta’. He has many firsts to his credits. Be it the organising ‘theme nights’ like ‘Ruhaani Jaam’ (renouncement of liquor), ‘Ru-Ba-Ru’ nights or even the introduction of a game called ‘Gurstick’ (a refined form of gilli daanda), Guruji spearheads everything with utmost ease and a never fading smile. Because of his ‘increasing-by-the second’ popularity, his detractor Khuraana hires a hitman Mike (Daniel Kaleb) in order to eliminate him, at the behest of ‘Don’. Additionally, the ‘Don’ also sends his suicide bomber to be a part of his Guruji’s ‘beti’ gang, which includes Kasam (Jayshree Soni), Alice (Olexandra Semen), a foreign media student wanting to make a documentary on Guruji and Muskaan (Flora Saini). On one fateful day, an inconsolable Kasam, on the eve of her wedding, reveals a stark reality about Guruji to Alice and Muskaan, which stuns and shocks them both. Around the same time, Guruji’s life also gets endangered under mysterious circumstances. Simultaneously, around the same time, Guruji’s girl gang discovers the real suicide bomber.
