The film oozes chutzpah, but regrettably the dance scenes don't match the sparkle of the performances. A pleasing romp, nevertheless -- both studio systems should feel proud.
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.
Not authentic Bollywood, not polished enough to pass for Hollywood and not edgy enough for indie film fans.
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.
A musical comedy that's mirthless and barely musical.
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.
While the musical numbers that season "Bollywood" are brimming with color and enthusiasm, they're not exactly overflowing with technical competence.
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.
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.
A good film to watch.
Bollywood meets Pretty Woman.
In case you don't know what Bollywood is. It is the type of film made in India involving melodrama and over-the-top dance numbers. This movie thinks it is clever because it takes those themes and mixes it with a 'hollywood' plot.It's not clever, it's not funny, it's not wink wink funny either. The jokes are not funny. The actors do a terrible job. The dancing is just too ridiculous. Half a star for each breast of the escort girl who, of course, has a heart of gold, and another half for Rockini.
