Storyline

Widowed Mrs. Braganza rents her house to seven struggling wanna-be film artistes, who want to make it big in Bollywood, they are Sushmita Banerjee who wants to be a writer; Aditya Sharma who hopes to take over from Shahrukh Khan; pretty Ankita Kulkarni who wants to be an actress and is in love with Aditya; Nandini Shetty who fancies herself a future Lata Mangeshkar; Irfan wants to be a lyricist; while Raman and Vijay want to be music director and actor respectively. Their aspirations lead them to naught and they are even unable to pay rent to Mrs. Braganza for nearly 5 months. When Bollywood big-wigs are killed by Shameembhai, a Dubai-based extortionist, the seven hit upon a plan to make easy money by pretending to be Shameem's henchmen. The plan goes well, Sharad Shah, a diamond merchant, is abducted and a huge sum along with diamonds are extorted. The seven hide the loot in Sushmita's vacant property outside Mumbai city limits. The seven then settle down until this incident dies ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

The Greatest Movie of all time
22 December 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Once in a while a movie so special comes along, that it changes the world as we know it. This is one of those movies. Outstanding. In addition to being one of the most powerful movies of this century, it has also inspired me to become a better, more caring and generous person. North America is in your debt Anus Magillicutty. And I, for one, would like to thank the creators for giving birth to such a masterpiece, that as I soak in every ounce of this movie I lose my breath and shed my tears. The term 'best movie of all time' is thrown around a lot, but as of 2003 I think we have an answer to this much debated topic. So if you haven't seen this movie, go out and do yourself a service, and rent this masterstroke of film-making.
