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.

Exposing the sweet idiocity of hindi movie world
7 February 2002 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

You need to grow in India to grasp the subtlety of the satire this movie portrays. A semi retired B grade actor of Hollywood is driven by deprivation agrees to act in a Hindi movie. Through his experience is the tale of total lack of professionalism that has almost all aspects of Indian industries. But the movie is very sensibly made and does not offend any one. There is great performance by Om Puri, which alone makes this movie worth watching.
