Many people in India want to prove their mettle in showbiz, especially Bollywood, but only the lucky few (some even coupled with determination) emerge a winner. Bollywood Diaries is about the burning passion of those who are bent on making it big in Bollywood.


Three individuals have high aspirations for Bollywood. Ashish Vidyarthi, who is in his early 50s, is trying to enter Bollywood for a long time. He is currently retired from his government job. In fact, he also has experience in theater performance while he was in college. Salim Diwan, a young man, works in a call center and is obsessed with the idea of being hailed as a superstar of Bollywood. Raima Sen is a call girl in Kolkata who also wants to make it big in Bollywood. The movie faces the struggles faced by these three people to enter the dream factory.

Star Performances

Ashish Vidyarthi has given a topnotch performance. He enacts the role of a man whose dreams are not fructified due to family concerns. The audience will be able to empathize with his character. Raima Sen is earnest in her performance, but her role is not sketched properly. Salim Diwan has come out with a convincing performance.


Sometimes we very much want to watch a movie owing to its interesting plot but finally we end up disappointed with the outcome. Bollywood Diaries, directed by K D Satyam (who is known for his award-winning movie Gattu) is one such film.

What’s there?

  • The music and BGM deserve special mention.
  • Thankfully, there is not too much melodrama in the movie.
  • The story of Ashish is etched nicely. 
  • The script mirrors the reality. 

What’s not there?

  • The movie fails in the execution part.
  • The movie lacks originality, especially the story of Raima Sen, which seems to have been lifted from the 90s.
  • The movie tries to walk on several genres that it ends up being a mess. 


Bollywood Diaries surely has a good intention but fails in the execution part. Maybe an elite audience will like it.
