Mahaul Theek Hai (1999) is a Punjabi comedy film directed by Indian filmmaker Jaspal Bhatti. The English subtitled version is called The Atmosphere Is Right.[1]

Plot[edit]

Mahaul Theek Hai (meaning 'the situation is okay') is a record setting Punjabi film.[2] It is a comedy satire about the police force in India.[3] The plot is a story where boy (Smeep Kang) meets girl (Chandni Toor). The hero's brother Raj Babbar, is involved with an illegal businessman. The heroine's father Kulbhushan Kharbanda is cheated of land by his own brother. Played by director and satirist Jaspal Bhatti, the villain of the film is a corrupt SSP (police superintendent) who misuses his authority to threaten people and hide his own excesses.[4][5] His love interest is played by Bhatti's real life wife (Savita Bhatti). Shot mainly in the northern India city of Chandigarh, the story uses a simple plotline to create its comedy. Every situation which should seem serious is filled with the incessant jokes and humour which are Bhatti's trademark.[6][7][8]
