Summary
Five years ago in Bombay, Dr. Madan Kataria decided to find out whether or not "laughter is the best medicine." He gathered together a group of patients and neighbors to meet daily to laugh. After a time, Dr. Kataria found that the participants experienced improved health and decreased levels of stress. Thus was born across India the phenomenon of laughing clubs. Since then, clubs have spread to Europe and to the United States.In this film, award-winning director Mira Nair has created a compassionate, sometimes ironic portrait of a number of "serious laughers" who meet daily in these clubs in pursuit of happiness
