It has been reported that Erkin Rakishev, a film director in Kazakhstan has shot a sequel to Borat Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan. Kazakh national Rakishev did not see the funny side of the original Borat film, and so has decided to film a sequel named ‘My Brother, Borat’ to counter balance the country’s image created by Cohen’s character.
The film trails an American journalist called John, who after watching the original Borat movie, decides to visit Kazakhstan. He goes in search of the character’s fictional home village Kusek, but is shocked to find a modern and developed city. John recalls in the movie that Borat mentioned his mentally ill brother Bilo,” says Rakishev. He finds Bilo in a psychiatric ward along with Osama Bin Laden and George Bush. John is then taken on a tour around Kazakhstan by Bilo to see what the country is really like.
The sequel appears to have two things in common with the original Borat move, one being the unimportance of the plot, and second the desire to cause offence. In one scene Bilo gets raped by a donkey and in another an old woman is seen beating the two main characters with a stick. But Rakishev denies such scenes will cause offence and said “If it was Borat’s brother who raped the donkey then perhaps it would be considered outrageous, but it is the other way round,” he argues.
