Deool is a humorous take on a small, forgotten village called Mangrool that lies in the neglected areas of Maharashtra. Years of bad weather and drought has taken a toll on the spirits of people from Mangrool. Nuanced with local village politics, hopes and aspirations of youth, the film essentially depicts the irony of Indian villages.
On a usual sleepy afternoon in the village, Kesha, a herdsman, has a divine vision (or so he feels) of Shri Guru Dutta who evolves from the silently standing Fig tree. Bewildered, Kesha runs across the village announcing the appearance of lord Dutta to the passersby.
One tells the other, he to a few more. The news spreads like a wild fire. The young guns of the village see this as a long awaited opportunity to change things in their poor village. Soon it becomes a matter of interest for the media, politicians. A decision is taken. The young guns are thrilled. A life that they saw only on television, the glitters of the cities, the intoxication of youth and a lifestyle they have been dreaming off will finally be theirs. The sleepy folks of 'Mangrool' now get ready to build a huge temple of lord 'Dutta' in their village.
