Movie Plot

Rupali and Lucky have a strong love for one another and want to get married. However, because Lucky is an orphan and makes less money than the boy Rupali's father has chosen, Lucky's connection with Rupali is aggressively opposed by the latter's father. Lucky has a lot of challenges to overcome in order to pursue his relationship with Rupali, despite his love for her. Everyone is discouraged from backing Lucky's endeavors, particularly his desire to establish his own band, by Rupali's powerful father and uncle.

Lucky comes up with a strategy to rob a truck that is believed to be carrying valuable electronics since he is determined to overcome these obstacles. He asks his friends Sultan and Minus for assistance in carrying out the heist. But to their amazement, they discovered a consignment of condoms inside the truck rather than the anticipated gadgets. The trio is forced to adapt and decides to sell the condoms covertly, turning to don helmets to hide their identities.

In conclusion, societal and economic inequalities thwart Lucky and Rupali's romance. Lucky and his pals' quest for a life together sends them on an unexpected adventure involving a truckload of condoms, which forces them to come up with creative ways to sell the goods while remaining anonymous.

Helmet Reviews


India Times

The satirical film "Helmet," directed by Satram Ramani, bravely addresses the issue of contraception in India. The movie, which is set in Kanpur, centers on Lucky, a wedding performer who wants to form his own band and wed Rupali, his crush. Lucky conspires with his friends to rob a commodities truck in order to get out of debt, but they soon find out that the truck is actually loaded with condoms rather than technological goods. The film pokes fun at Indian men's resistance to contraception while addressing the social and psychological problems it causes. However, it fails to address the deeper causes that are behind men's reluctance to use condoms. This odd comedy has enjoyable performances and a timely social message that is worth your time.

The New Indian Express

The movie, Helmet, which was directed by Satramm Ramani, avoids broaching the topic of condom purchases. In the imaginary village of Raj Nagar, Lucky is a wedding singer who wants to create his own band but lacks money. He robs a delivery truck with his cronies Sultan and Minus, only to discover that it is stocked with condoms rather than cell phones. In a lighthearted manner, the movie makes fun of people who are uncomfortable using condoms. However, the movie's second half gets sillier and less interesting. Although Aparshakti Khurana gives a respectable performance, the movie lacks humor and is not memorable.


As a result of sloppy writing and a half-hearted approach, Helmet, a movie that tackles the subject of condom use and encourages appropriate sexual behavior, falls short of its potential. The film portrays the conservative Indian society's unwillingness to freely discuss sex and birth control in an accurate manner.

Though it commendably raises the issue and informs viewers on the value of condoms in avoiding STDs, it mostly blames men's reluctance to shyness rather than addressing more fundamental problems like selfishness, apathy, and misguided ideas of masculinity.

The movie acknowledges that buying condoms can be unpleasant socially, but it does not highlight the deeper causes of men's opposition to contraception. Instead, it shows a solution that fixes the problem magically, implying that social awkwardness is the main issue. The writing also lacks the proficiency to address the complexities of persuading every man in a town to accept responsibility for their sexual relations.

Helmet also has problems with inconsistent character development, especially with Rupali's portrayal. Her combative and independent beginnings contrast with her subdued reaction to social conventions later in the movie. Additionally, the second half loses some of its momenta, and the humorous subplot with the friend's character's mishearing becomes uninteresting and unfunny.

Although the movie represents a development in Hindi cinema's treatment of birth control, it is much less efficient than recent films like Sara, which dealt with the subject clearly. Helmet's cautious handling of the brave concept lessens its power, and the dispersed writing across several fronts further reduces its potential.
