Dunki, the most recent film starring Shah
Rukh Khan, has taken viewers on an emotional but enjoyable journey. Donkey flight is a tactic used by illegal immigrants on which the movie is based. In this film, the lives of people who are motivated to move to London—by hook or by crook—in order to improve their own prospects are explored.
Three characters, Manu (Taapsee Pannu), Buggu (Vikram Kochhar), and Balli (Anil Grover), are introduced at the start of the story. The trio chooses to travel to London in order to earn pounds and return the money home in order to aid their respective families, who are in desperate need. They locate a representative who guarantees to arrange visas, even in the event that they don't fulfil the prerequisites for obtaining one formally.
Shortly after, Hardy (Shah Rukh Khan) enters the scene. Hardy is travelling to find Mahinder, the man who saved his life during a conflict. Hardy would like to thank Mahinder and return a recording recorder. He encounters Manu on his hunt, who claims to know Mahinder and to be able to transport him to Mahinder's house. But when Manu discloses that he was killed in an accident and turns out to be Mahinder's sister, the tender reunion takes a fatal turn.
In order to assist Manu get her visa, Hardy chooses to assist her in her hunt for a wrestling instructor. The least he could do for the family of a man who saved his life, in his opinion, is this. But shortly later, they find out the agent has left and is suspicious.
Nevertheless, Hardy manages to obtain a student visa and travel to London legally in order to assist them on their voyage. They all enrol in an English language programme and meet Sukhi (Vicky Kaushal) there. Sukhi wish to travel to London in order to save Jassi, his beloved. After getting married, she married an NRI who later turned out to be an abuser.
As he watches all of this happen, Hardy decides to use Dunki to take Manu to London. Along with Manu, Buggu, and a few others, he embarked on a difficult journey through Dunki. However, upon arriving in London, they all discover that things do not always improve, particularly for those who are undocumented immigrants.
They look for ways to obtain legal status, but they end up in jail. The bright side is that they are fleeing persecution in India and are applying for refuge in London. Hardy, a veteran soldier, chooses to decline and is deported shortly after others choose to accept.
After twenty-five years, Manu phones Hardy and begs for assistance to return to India because she is dying and doesn't want to pass away outside of her home nation. Well, old habits die strong, and in order to get back to India, they all do Dunki
again. When 60-year-old Hardy eventually gets back to her native land, he pops the question to Manu, who accepts.
Manu, though, dies shortly after. Balli, Hardy, and Buggu begin to consider their future in their village of Laltu. The final scene of Dunki conveys a powerful message about how immigration regulations have only served to keep the underprivileged out of opportunities to improve their lot in life.
