Story : A teacher arrives at a backward village in Haryana and tries to transform the place and its inhabitants for good.

Review : Movies, unlike TV shows, don't usually have a laugh track. So, when a comedy film has one, you approach it with caution. In Jattu Engineer, the laugh track is almost its soundtrack which you have to endure for two hours and 19 minutes of the film's length. The third project by Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh and his daughter Honeypreet Singh, the film has Gurmeet playing a double role. His first avatar is that of principal Shakti Singh Sisodia who wants to transform a village plagued by drug abuse, and whose inhabitants are lazy, defecate in the open and litter their surroundings incessantly. His second avatar is Sgainth Singh Sidhu, a prankster who takes revenge on the bad guys who get in the way of Shakti's plans.

The issue with the film is the simplistic approach in which Shakti doles out absurd solutions to the villagers' problems. For example, he tells the villagers that defecate in the open, a headless ghost will eat them. While Gurmeet's acting is another thing you have to endure, the rest of the cast seem to not know where the camera is. Also, Hindi viewers may have a tough time understanding many scenes because a lot of the dialogues are in Haryanvi.

A lowbrow slapstick comedy, most gags in Jattu Engineer are centered entirely around the characters stuttering, stammering and passing wind loudly. The movie gets its title from a scene where Shakti ties a cable to a rat's tail and has the critter zigzag through a pipe. Engineering hacks like these may not be sustainable solutions to problems faced by the villagers. They aren't funny either. The film is two hours of loud gags with a handful of preachy messages. Watch at your own risk, this one!
