As the title implies, the film tries to incorporate elements of bollywood and hollywood films into one. It feels like a Pretty Woman knock off and not quite like a bollywood film either. The film also leaves many matters left aside, such as the representations of homosexuality. The acting is generally fairly poor and noticeably so.

It insightive, colorful and celebrative with dance and music thats ethnically enriching.

His sister is in love and wants to get on with her life but can't until he finds someone to wed. Almost when hope is lost he encounters a striking bueaty who looks indian but isn't or is she?

Deepa Mehta's take on Bollywood is so smart. I love a musical!
½ December 6, 2011
Bollywood Hollywood is a fun piece of not quite mindless entertainment. Deepa Mehta makes Bollywood for a Western audience without completely losing what makes Bollywood great. Gone is the 3+ hour running time and the overly and ridiculously melodramatic plot line and acting, replaced with a much more manageable run time and more naturalistic performances. What remains is the fun, the unashamedly romantic plot, the family connection and dynamic and of course the dance numbers.
Brightly coloured with a witty script that moves fast, Bollywood Hollywood isn't profound, but it eases the Western viewer into the culture that is India and Bollywood with enough insight and intelligence to spark interest in the real thing without the difficulties that the Western viewer encounters through a full fledged Bollywood flick.

Weird movie... I am still trying to figure out if I like it or not.

hilarious look at arranged marriages
½ March 8, 2011
I really really really like Rahul Khanna, and the songs were good. However, it needed twice as many drag queens and some of the things meant to be affectionate came off as condescending. Also, why is Deepa Mehta always making Lisa Ray a prostitute?

It wasn't really a Bollywood film in the musical sense - I felt it was trying to be a parody of Bollywood, but it lacked humour.
½ January 20, 2011
Though occasional flashes of the radiantly bi-cultural romp that might have been peek through, writer-director Deepa Mehta's hybrid is strangely clumsy, given that she's an experienced filmmaker familiar with both Hollywood and Bollywood conventions.

Unremarkable. Takes everything fun about real Bollywood and drops the ball on it. If you want to see a good American send off to Bollywood, see Bride and Prejudice. Or, just go see a real Bolly. Start with DDLJ or Veer Zaara.

Terrible acting and script.

The story was a little too out there, seriously I still didn't think those two liked each other when they were supposed to be in love. The Canadian actress' teeth were so gross too, they were nearly British. It was kinda funny, but at times it was too long, the songs weren't as good as most Bollywood films. I guess if I could believe they actually liked eachother, it would be better.

Interesting movie but its only draw is the gimmick of the Bollywood approach in downtown Toronto. Storyline is straight out of the 1930's. Get dancing but I want to know how the non-Indian dancers could know such elaborate dance moves when the dance starts spontaneiously. They could have spend more time getting the lip-sync right on the dance sessions as well. All in all, not a bad way to pass some time.

A fun Bollywood themed film, some very entertaining musical numbers. It?s all very familiar but it is well done. I enjoyed the cast. It?s nothing great but it entertains along the way.
