The movie starts off with Ram (Ayushmann Khurrana) who is a stage director and actor. His name is Ram, but he plays the lead role of Raavan in the stage play Raavan Leela. He is heading to be with his live in girlfriend Chitra (Gaelyn Mendonca) and on the way he finds Mandar Lele (Kunal Roy Kapur) committing suicide. Ram jumps in to save the life of Mandar (who is fed up with the world, his life and is a heartbroken soul after a break up with Nandini (Pooja Salvi).

Nautanki Saala Review

Ram being the good soul takes the distraught  Mandar back home! Ram is now putting his best efforts to make Mandar happy. Meanwhile the sad part is that Nandini presently has a boyfriend! Who wins over whom forms the rest of the story. Do Mandar and Nandini get back together? Are Ram and Nandini a couple? Or are Chitra and Ram still a couple and planning their future ahead?

The Good Part
With this film, Rohan Sippy has managed to present and convince people that a Ram and a Raavan can exist at the same time within a person. Human dynamics have been presented well in a satirical way, comedy has been woven well and it’s a different sort of comedy that’s neither slapstick nor cheesy.

The Bad Part
The screenplay seems a bit forced on the audience. Adding to that, it doesn’t unfold very well. The writers have tried to mash up the incidents in the movie and the stage play scenes together which unfortunately don’t go in favor of the story and test your patience at times.
