Sitting on the fine chairs in hotels, resting on sofas in your bunglows, walking side by side in the lovely atmosphere of beautiful gardens, you will find  some one criticising one another and this is, always, but natural. 

The kingdom with which every one is connected is also criticised and the man does not leave it without blame. The easier to blame the kingdom , the more difficult is to rule, but it is not ever realised. This can be said during the freedom. 

There was a time when the kingdom was governed by the kings themselves and the subjects use to say something for the king, his kingdom, but in such a manner, no body should hear it. During the reign of one of the kings of this period, the same sort of situation took place. A son of a businessman by name 'YUSAF' was always busy in drinking and always found in a bad company and with friends of no characters. Yusaf, one day discussed with his friends  about the affairs of kingdom and also criticised, to which talk King Aslam Parvez heard secretly, sitting in a company, wearing just ordinary clothes in which he was not recognised. Having heard the discussions King Aslam Parvez decided to make Yusuf, the king of his dominion for a day only. Yusaf son of Amber the businessman, became 'KING OF ONE DAY'. How he maintained his kingdom? You will observe in "EK DIN KA BADSHAH" produced and directed by Jugal Kishore.
