Hilarious Movie
12 October 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It is an awesome movie unlike high budget super flop movies like laaga chunri mein daag, dhol etc. The film has no story as such. But it's a mad comedy, and you don't feel bored even for a moment. All the actors perform well, and you fall in love with their characters after a while. Director Manish Acharya has done a brilliant job on the characters. In less than two hours, you feel as though you know them. Loins Of Punjab Presents is a great way to spend a lazy afternoon. This is the movie worth watching and worth spending your hard earned money.

Loins of Punjab is the name of a company, which organizes a singing reality show called the Desi American Idol in New Jersey. The film takes a closer look at the kind of people who participate in the show, and the politics of it all.
