It’s full of cusswords—the ‘F’ one in English and the ‘C’ and ‘G’ ones in Hindi—the camera lingers on a hairy butt crack and later on, faecal matter and a hard-on, a character scratches his unmentionables with the same dirty hand he serves chicken with, there are varied farts, talk of testicles being cut and fashioned into earrings and a car born of the union between a donkey and a rickshaw. It’s all utterly incorrect and inappropriate but oh so delightfully so.
