Yeh Hai Bakrapur is a social satire set against the backdrop of rural India.[2] A multi-layered film, it is based on the complex belief systems that prevail in Indian society and the conflicts that ensue thereon.[2] Yeh Hai Bakrapur was screened at the 37th Göteborg International Film Festival.[3][4] Yeh hai Bakrapur was part of The Film Bazaar[5] in the year 2012 as work in progress and it was also premiered at the Mumbai Academy of the Moving Image, 2013 Festival[6][7][8] The film released in India on 9 May 2014 to great reviews.[9]


The film's story revolves around the family of the Qureshis and their pet animal goat. Circumstances result in the goat acquiring rock star status in his village and beyond. Soon enough, people are fighting for a piece of the live goat,named sharukh. A rollicking climax ensues that provides the perfect finale to the mayhem that preceded it.[4]



Film Critic Subhash K. Jha gave it 3 Stars and said that Yeh Hai Bakrapur is a scathing satire on blind faith. The movie is flush with fun, not necessarily intentional.[10]
