I don't understand a lot of things in this universe and that's okay. Some things are beyond mortal understanding and humans just have to make their peace with them. Naache Naagin Gali Gali is one such masterpiece of a film that I just was unable to grasp at all. Whether it's the premise or the plot or anything around it, everything just refused to make sense. So much so that the fact that the film has over 45 million views on YouTube is also beyond my understanding.
The plot of the film is far from simple. Except that yes, it is about naagins. Directed by Mohanji Prasad, the film stars Meenakshi Sheshadri, Nitish Bharadwaj and Sadashiv Amrapurkar. Meenakshi and Nitish are two snakes who have taken human form. Narsing Dev (Amrapurkar) is an evil sorcerer who has to capture these snakes in order to get himself rid of his leprosy.
How did he get this leprosy. Well.
Narsing Dev has tricked his grand master into telling him all the secrets of the universe. Fantastic idea! And sure as day, Narsing Dev turns his grandmaster into a parrot as soon as the grandmaster tells him the big secrets of magic and sorcery.
Narsing Dev decides to usurp some land (the most realistic part about the film to be honest) and kills the landlord with a ball of fire. That's right. It was a ball of fire that he conjured up in his living room. Once he kills the landlord, the landlord's mother curses Narsing Dev that he'll be a leper. And sure enough, he wakes up next morning to realize he's got a rotting thumb.
Later Narsing Dev, all dressed up as Mogambo's younger brother, goes to find these two snakes who have the cure to his rotting thumb (this cure was also given to him by the grandmaster) and finds them dancing in the mountains.
And all of this is just the first couple of minutes of the film! Check out the full review here.
