The concept is witty even if many jokes fall flat or are incomprehensible to outsiders, and it's an interesting angle on the inclusive ideal pitted against ethnic authenticity.

The most obvious model for this sweet, low-budget production is Christopher Guest's Best in Show ... except with desis instead of doggies.

The movie maintains a nice balance between affection for its fame-seekers and sharp jokes at their expense.

... there's more than enough entertainment and self deprecation to fill theatres everywhere.

Joins show-time antics to sociocultural commentary without reducing its characters, colorful as they are, to cartoons.

The more you know about Bollywood clichés, desi neuroses and Indian-on-Indian stereotypes, the funnier you'll find Acharya's merciless in-jokes.

It's frightfully formulaic, with nary a twist or turn on the patented mockumentary form.

An uninspired cultural comedy with a few sharp lines to recommend it.

The zany incomprehensibility of the title should serve as fair warning of the quirkfest to come.

The cast is personable even though their characters and the story are cliched.
