Being a satirical take on bloodshed and violence, Bangistan attempts to showcase the true face of terrorism and religious fundamentalism with a tinge in humour.
The film is about two men who belong two different communities and reside in a fictional country called Bangistan. Hafeez (Riteish Deshmukh) works in a call center while Praveen Chaturvedi is a staunch Hindu devotee. The two are sent by their respective leaders in order to explode a bomb at a religious convention held in Poland. Hafeez and Praveen however, decide to change their identity and religion in order to ensure safety and Hafeez turns into Iswharchand Sharma while Praveen becomes Allah Rakha. The two befriend each other without being aware of each other's identity.
