Bahut Hua Sammaan is the story of Bony and Fundoo who agree to rob a bank since they are unable to find a job after failing their final year of engineering. Guided by an odd old man fondly known as Bakch*d Baba, their masterplan goes totally awry as they realize that the bank has already been robbed and they have been arrested for it.
In an attempt to clear their name, they soon fight off assassins, seasoned robbers, elite politicians and religious gurus; all the while unravelling a larger scam. Riddled with humour, the narrative challenges a myriad societal issue faced by today’s youth.
Sanjay Mishra said, “A satire at its core, Bahut Hua Sammaan is a humorous take on the perils of unemployment and also touches upon issues faced by the youth today.
The most intriguing part of this movie is the character of Bakch*d Baba; it is one of the most exceptional characters that I’ve played – the way he talks, and his mannerisms are all too real. People are guaranteed a good laugh!”
Dancer and actor Raghav Juyal added, “It’s a funny movie that revolves around two students and con-men who are trying to make easy money but end up finding themselves in a situation that unravels political scams.
Even though the movie is addressing a serious issue, there is not a single dull moment. Every character is out-of-this-world yet fits into this story wonderfully well.”Ram Kapoor said, “Doing movies is always fun, especially one that holds a mirror to today’s societal issues but in a way that makes you want to laugh out loud.
In Bahut Hua Sammaan, people will see me in a new avatar of an assassin; it’s not everyday that you get a chance to play a role that is so different from something you’ve done before:
Small time con artists and not-so-good students Bony and Fundoo fail to grab a job offer at the end of their engineering program since they have not been able to secure a passing grade.
This failure coupled with insults from the principal of their college, the boys see a bleak future and more importantly a loss of their reputation among their peers. They see a ray of hope in whacked out old man fondly called Bakchod Baba who has devised a masterplan to rob a bank in their campus.
As an unfortunate series of comedic events unfold, Bony and Fundoo soon find themselves in the centre of an investigation headed by dabanng female cop Bobby Tiwari. They must now work towards clearing their name and getting out of a scam that impacts their lives.
