Luck by Chance is a sharp look at how stardom is both desired and created and the personal and professional toll it can take on those who pursue it.

Poised somewhere between an outright art movie and a mainstream Indian feature, [this] behind-the-scene look at the hopes and shattered dreams of aspiring Mumbai movie stars could as easily have been called "What Price Bollywood?" or "Run, Vikram, Run."

Akhtar makes her points about the film industry and celebrity with impressive, intelligent dramatic restraint and subtlety.

Expensively polished, with portions shot in the now-notorious Taj Mahal hotel and a bombastic techno-poppy soundtrack currently getting raves in India, the film mostly just makes one nostalgic for Bollywood classics.

An enjoyable but ultimately toothless inside-Bollywood dramady.

The Player meets All About Eve in this seriocomic satire of the Bollywood film industry%u2014by a first-time director whose collaring of over a dozen major Hindi stars for cameos speaks well of its biting accuracy.

Bursting with the usual colorful pop music numbers and lighter-than-a-soap-bubble quandaries, the film is a typical Bollywood entry, not likely to win over many new converts.

Luck by Chance is an appealing tale of two would-be actors looking for movie stardom.

If anything, a film like this should compel us all to linger a little longer through the credits to acknowledge the no-name extra and the sandpaper-handed carpenters.

Luck by Chance heralds the debut of yet another Bolly star-kid. Zoya Akhtar takes the helm at this fresh, brilliantly written story on the inner machinations of the Hindi film industry.
