Movie Info

A Bollywood starlet and a struggling newcomer are brought together by kismet, working their way through the Hindi film industry as romance blossoms and their lives are forever changed. Arriving in Bombay with stars in her eyes and dreams of success, Sona has the luxury of a rented apartment, and passes the time in the company of her loyal friends. Everyone has a dream in this city, and as Sona works hard to make a name for herself on the big screen, Vikram leaves his parents' Delhi home and sets his sights on the city. Vikram's no fool; he has a way of getting what he wants, and when he meets Sona, the sparks start to fly. Meanwhile, superstitious producer Romy Rolly is developing a potential blockbuster designed to launch the career of 18-year-old Nikki, the daughter of '70s-era superstar Neena. Headlining the film is Rolly's biggest star, box-office heavy Zaffar Khan. When things start going south on Rolly's film, Vikram is called in for an audition. One audition is all Vikram needs in order to make a big impression, and before long things are looking decidedly brighter for all involved. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Luck by Chance

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

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.

July 7, 2010 | Full Review…

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.

February 11, 2009 | Full Review…

An enjoyable but ultimately toothless inside-Bollywood dramady.

February 5, 2009 | Full Review…

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.

January 30, 2009 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

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

January 30, 2009 | Full Review…

A valentine as well as a poison pen letter to good-golly-it's-Bollywood.
