Mehta manages to make her film not only palatable, but a real pleaser.

Does precisely what Bollywood movies should do: It engages us with its joyousness and silliness and its unflagging commitment to surface attractions.

| Original Score: B

David Noh
Film Journal International

A contrived contraption, with more than a hint of desperation in its clueless anxiousness to be an audience winner along the lines of My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Not authentic Bollywood, not polished enough to pass for Hollywood and not edgy enough for indie film fans.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

While the musical numbers that season "Bollywood" are brimming with color and enthusiasm, they're not exactly overflowing with technical competence.

| Original Score: 1.5/4

What starts as an examination of the common cliches of Hollywood and Bollywood ends up being condescending to both.

When the music stops, so does the magic. The film loses its footing with flat deliveries of dialogue from most of the cast.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

Clearly designed to appeal to fans of both the Indian and American houses of filmmaking. Unfortunately, it's so inept that it may appeal to neither.

An escort gets paid to play the part of the rich guy's girlfriend - it's Bollywood's answer to Pretty Woman... Is Bollywood/Hollywood jolly-good fun? Almost.

Though neither big nor slick, it's a joyful, feel-good spoof that makes you want to run out and rent a real Bollywood musical.

Bollywood/Hollywood, like this spring's slightly better cultural hodgepodge The Guru, simply offers no compelling reason to fork over your movie dollars.

A musical comedy that's mirthless and barely musical.

Less a pastiche of the cinematic conventions of both 'woods than it is My Big Fat Greek Wedding in a sari.

Mehta's delight with her own in-joke, as well as her attractive, energetic cast, will prove infectious to those audiences who find themselves sharing the director's frivolous frame of mind.

The movie is lazily conceived, refusing to offer a single developed character or scene.

Mehta can't decide whether she's making a spoof of Indian cinema or a straightforward romantic comedy.

Lacks the sharpness and sophistication necessary for it to appeal beyond Indian audiences.

Promising a sexy blend of L.A. and Bombay, Bollywood/ Hollywood is just another mediocre masala.

Mehta's film has intermittent energy and wit, but if I were to rank the recent ethnic marital comedies, her musical would be a distant fourth.

Feels cramped and constrained at just about every level.
