Unlike some movies which are known to have taken a classical dig at own very own “filmy” industry, this film is a miserable satirical take on the dysfunctional Bollywood.

This one proves to be a failed attempt at revealing the dark side of glittery cinema from behind the cameras.


The movie traces the journey of Amar Joshi played by Sunil Shetty a Benaras based DVD retailer who aspires of becoming a Director.

Though he faces parental opposition, he sells off his video gallery and goes to London for a filmmaking course. Having returned from London, Joshi goes to Mumbai with a sensitive, realistic script on his mind.

It narrates the incident of a female investigative journalist getting gang raped. He then sets off on a journey to find a producer for his movie.

However in the process, his script gets twisted, molded manipulated and adulterated with all sorts of typical Bollywood masala elements so as to suit the demands of various producers.

Once Joshi gets a willing producer Monty ( Rakesh Bedi), he immediately starts working on his film. But Amar’s film is halted midway when Monty goes missing.

Enters underworld don Bhosle played by Deepak Shirke, who is bankrolling his movie. He wants Joshi to complete the project and also venture his girlfriend. What follows the rest of the plot is how the film makes it to big screens despite all roadblocks.


Since the movie has taken a lot of time to go on floors, you get to experience out of place humor and story. The movie could have come out strong provided director Rajnish Thakur had thought of applying some sense to it.

The story seems to be promising but falls prey to horrible execution. Shabby acting and low-class humor bring down the power factor of movie singlehandedly. Even the star cast hardly does any justice to the storyline.


The movie is packed with awfully bad performances. Sunil Shetty comes out too loud and overboard. Rajpal Yadav fails to add the comic punch while Udita doesn’t add to the glamor quotient even let alone of acting.


Well, hardly anything. However, the movie does give you glimpses of the erratic and dark side of the film industry.


Everything right from plot to apt execution! Over the top acting, poor dialogues, dull music, and bizarre incompetent direction are what this movie is all about.


Filled with funny dialogues, cheap comedy and crass plot this one is surely a big NO for the weekend watch.
