Storyline

An alcoholic and cancer-ridden U.S.-based film-maker, Patrick Stormaire (Pat Cusick), decides to produce a Bollywood movie, and travels to India. once there, he is met at the airport by the owner of Subramaniam Arts, Mr. Subramaniam (Om Puri), and subsequently introduced to the lead actors, Manu Kapoor (Navin Nischol), and Kajal (Perizaad Zorabian), and told that the title of the movie is 'Maut: The Death'. He will be unprepared for the shocks when he gets to meet the remainder of the cast and crew and find out that nothing is ever done on schedule; and last but not the least - the movie still does not even have a script.

extremely disappointing ...
16 January 2002 | by (chennai, india) – See all my reviews

i watched bollywood calling with a huge level of anticipation and expectation. after his brilliant debut film, hyderabad blues, this was supposed to be a return to roots for nagesh kukunoor and a movie in a similar style. the intention was there, but the effectiveness was definitely missing.

where hyderabad blues succeeded in making the viewer totally identify with the protagonist, b.c fails. the spoofs on bollywood are way too cliched and the same have been done many times better in local theatre and on the small screen. furthermore, quite often b.b itself descends into the style that it attempts to parody. a disasterous effort.om puri stands out with some terrific performance, but the lead actor pat cusick is totally clueless, his acting is woodenfaced and silly. bollywood calling is sadly a disappointment and the attempted cliches just dont click.

the movie fails to generate more than a couple of laughs and sadly those scenes were already shown in the trailers. almost everybody who i saw it with was disappointed. the b-grade low budget touch that came off wonderfully in h.b totally fails here and the ridiculous production values are just plain annoying.

we expected more nagesh.

a disappointing 4!!
