Storyline

BUGABOO is a Silicon Valley film. It has been produced by people who live and work in Silicon Valley and who have prospered with the high-tech boom of the nineties. The Internet and the personal computer, while creating Silicon Valley, have also created armies of well-paid Indian professionals who lead a curious existence: as professionals they constitute the epicenter of America's recent growth binge, but as individuals they continue to stay inside cocooned, secure Indian communities which are quite divorced from all things American. A group of such engineers defies the even flow of this existence by introducing "random disturbances" into their lives. These deviations from normal routine punctuate the film until they finally lead to a "grand deviance," unthinkable for sober, law-abiding engineers from India. It is then, at the end of the film, that they discover simple solutions to seemingly complex problems in their lives. Written by Bill Johnson <wsj@cup.hp.com>

Funny quirky film
5 September 2012 | by (ohio) – See all my reviews

Let me start by saying that I am not a big fan of movies from India, but I thoroughly enjoyed this comedy! The film is centered on a young computer programmer from India who is not satisfied with his life in Silicon Valley. He knows there is something more than the superficial life he sees his friends pursuing, but has a hard time going counter to the norms and expectations of his society. THEN he comes across a "Doctor of Randomology" who, introduces random deviations into the young man's life. The Doctor of Randomology spins a dial and whatever it lands on, the young man has to do. The young man, still looking to an authority for answers, asks the Doctor each time what will happen after he does each task, to which the Doctor shrugs his shoulders and says, "Who know"? These deviations start the young man on a path to liberating himself. All in all, an insightful film, which is very funny and quirky.
