Welcome to Sajjanpur village whereMahadev [Shreyas Talpade] is one of the few educated young men in Sajjanpur. His ambition is to be a novelist, but finds it easier to make a living by writing and reading letters sitting next to the post office. His ability to write persuasive letters makes him popular with the largely non-literate population of the town. Aware of this power, he soon uses his talent to manipulate people with amusing and sometimes not such amusing results.Whilst scribbling postcards for the villagers, he plays a spectator to almost every interesting escapade in Sajjanpur. His clientele includes a scheming politician kin (Yashpal Sharma), a Compounder (Ravi Kishan) crazily in love with a widow (Rajeshwari Sachdeva), a superstitious mother (Ila Arun) desperate to get her daughter (Divya Dutta) married, a eunuch venturing into politics (Ravi Jhankal) and a married woman (Amrita Rao) longing for her husband to return from city. The film unravels each character’s unique story and attempts to positively solve most of them.
On the whole, WELCOME TO SAJJANPUR is an interesting watch. At the box-office, the film has the potential to go from strength to strength with a positive word of mouth.
