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

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.

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.

Deepa Mehta's feisty, featherweight romantic comedy makes the case that even the most flamboyant cinematic conventions are as universal as they are exotic, especially when they conspire to produce that glow of happily ever after.

Despite an apparently tight budget, this Canadian-Indian charmer is an effective feel-good comedy about overcoming cultural inhibitions.

It's clear that Mehta simply wanted to update her beloved genre for the thousands of Indians who fancy themselves too sophisticated for the cheese-laced spectacles that pack 'em in on the subcontinent.

Mehta expertly fashions a fascinating hybrid that is sure to delight audiences with its good-natured and well-timed humor, and its unabashed refusal to take itself seriously.

While Bollywood/Hollywood will undoubtedly provide its keenest pleasures to those familiar with Bombay musicals, it also has plenty for those (like me) who aren't.

Bollywood/Hollywood is a happy, carefree trifle of a movie that is easy to savour because it is so undemanding yet so rewarding.

Writer-director's Mehta's effort has tons of charm and the whimsy is in the mixture, the intoxicating masala, of cultures and film genres.

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.
