Borat is a 2006 British-American mockumentary comedy film directed by Larry Charles and distributed by 20th Century Fox. The film was written and produced by British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen; he also plays the title character, Borat Sagdiyev, a fictitious Kazakh journalist travelling through the United States recording real-life interactions with Americans. Much of the film features unscripted vignettes of Borat interviewing and interacting with Americans, who believe he is a foreigner with little or no understanding of American customs.

As most of the people talked to and interviewed in the mockumentary by Borat, the information and opinions/thoughts provided are real thoughts of random citizens in America, therefore many truths are revealed.

Sacha Baron Cohen through Borat reveals many truths; Borat reveals that some Americans are racist and discriminatory, such as Jews, Blacks and homosexuals. Each of these acts are shown throughout the film. Borat himself is treated like an outcast and is seen as a second-class citizen compared to others.

The plot of Borat is extremely interesting; Kazakh television personality Borat Sagdiyev leaves Kazakhstan for the "Greatest Country in the World", the "US and A" to make a documentary at the behest of the Kazakh Ministry of Information. He leaves behind his wife Oksana and other inhabitants of his village including his "43-year-old" mother, "No. 4 prostitute in…
