     12Gujarati musical allegory about politics. The 
     13middle-class scientist Hunshilal (Joshi), mainly 
     14through the actions of his scientist-girlfriend 
     15Parveen (Shahane), is pitted against a despotic 
     16politician, King Bhadrabhoop II of Khojpuri 
     17(Gokhale) whose subjects are bitten by a 
     18mysterious breed of mosquitoes and become 
     19restless. Hunshilal is employed by the Queen’s 
     20Laboratory to eradicate the mosquitoes but he 
     21defects, with Parveen, to the side of the bugs. 
     22He is caught and brainwashed but Parveen 
     23escapes the kingdom and sets out for the land 
     24of the mosquitoes beyond the Black Hills. The 
     25rulers are portrayed as indolent oppressors 
     26who spend their time playing with toy guns 
     27and toy trains. The film’s somewhat forced 
     28effort to assimilate a postmodern aesthetic is 
     29mainly evidenced in an unprecedentedly large 
     30number of songs cut into an already 
     31overcrowded soundtrack.
