Silly Hindi Movie Plot

I don’t write hindi movie plots in general. I just thought of one and thought it was so cute that I would share it with others. The basic outline of the story is that there is a corrupt, buffoonish politician who eventually is imprisoned, (nothing remarkable about that). He installs his own simpleton wife as a figurehead so he can continue to rule his province from jail. Okay, anyone from India knows this story.

However, here is the charming twist: the wife actually has some sense. She has long suffered in marriage to her husband and is actually happy to take over and turn the tables. She gets rid of her husband’s cronies, makes some sensible decisions, and the province prospers. And her husband fumes from prison but there is nothing he can do. Throw in a little song and dance and that’s a good movie. Too bad reality isn't like that.
