ONCE UPON A TIME IN BIHAR has an okayish story and an okayish execution. The film kind of justifies crime which is totally uncool. If that wasn't enough, it also becomes preachy at times. It's not completely unwatchable but it fails to leave any sort of impact.

Rajiv Kumar (Kranti Prakash Jha) is an IAS aspirant who's currently teaching in his Bihar village to make ends meet. He also wants to get his 'manglik' sister married. Seema (Arti Purni) is his girlfriend and support system. He meets Shankar Pandey (Deepak Singh) who has the right qualifications but is asked to pay a hefty bribe to get a government job. After all attempts fail and desperation creeps in, Rajiv and Shankar, along with aide Javed (Ajay Kumar) decide to turn ''idealist'' kidnapers. They won't kidnap children, women or aged people. Things take an ugly turn from here.

The film takes a lot of time to reach to the central point of them turning criminals. Probably director Nitin Chandra was trying to establish the characters and their struggles. In the second half, it improves tremendously in terms of its pacing but leaves you nonchalant overall. You don't feel for any of the characters. The mini twist in the second half is deftly done.

The performances are pretty decent. Kranti Prakash Jha is first rate. Deepak Singh is natural. Arti Puri acts well. Ashish Vidyarthi doesn't have much scope.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN BIHAR is a naive film which fails to leave any sort of impact.
