Sacha Baron Cohen returns to play the role of Borat in a new film titled “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Despite the long winding title, the film is once again a satirical comedy though it doesn’t reach the heights of its 2006 predecessor.
In this movie, Borat is in prison for making Kazakhstan a laughing stock but the Premier summons him and tells him to deliver a present to President Donald Trump. It needs to be delivered to him through the Vice President Mike Pence. After a series of mishaps Borat reaches American shores with his daughter. Then, he travels through America, getting into a series of misunderstandings and misadventures. He gets his first cell, uses the internet and meets with an internet influencer to groom his daughter.
Despite outrageous costumes and silly pranks, many of them carried out by his daughter, Borat falls short of expectations when compared with the original as times have changed. It is still a treat for Borat fans though it has lost a lot of its novelty and shock value, in spite of efforts from the director and the writers including Cohen.
The film ends on a serious note. It asks the public to vote. It is available on Amazon.
