Storyline

Rohan Arya lives a wealthy lifestyle in Mumbai and is a professional singer with Showbiz, which is managed by Inder Raj Bahl, while Rohan's personal Manager is Shikha Verma. Rohan and Shikha are attracted to each other, and after Journalist Sharad Rajpoot publishes their photographs, both publicly announce their forthcoming engagement. Then chaos enters their lives when Rohan's car is involved in an accident while he is in the company of a prostitute named Tara. Shikha refuses to have to do anything with him, while a frenzied media focuses in on Rohan's personal life - especially after word gets out that he may have known Tara before he met Shikha.

Nothing much in this show

Showbiz is a movie made to show the ugly face of electronic media. The subject is interesting and looking at today's world pretty serious too. But debut director Raju Khan was not able to hold the load of such serious subject and delivered something which is too much unrealistic and unbelievable.

Showbiz is a story of Rohan a new young promising singer (this singer can play good guitar and band too). He is the winner of some contest on the channel named Showbiz, driven by Saurav Shukla, and he is star in his first album. His career is just about to grow when some publicity and money hungry media reporters trapped him and publish false news about him. Rohan whose career is now doomed must seek revenge on them, with their own weapon.

To be true I didn't find any good point in the movie, except that only at certain point it is interesting. Specially somewhere around interval the story takes turn and we feel that there is going to be some excitement in the movie. But before that and even after that nothing of any significance happens and story goes as predicted.

Lets start from the beginning of the movie. The movie starts with the song, and then in the first 30 minutes we are bombarded by another two songs. The songs are not very good for ears neither for eyes. Story just crawls very slowly and absolutely nothing happens in first 20 minutes (remember the movie is less than 2 hrs), other than characters introduction. Some events starts happening after the 3rd song and the story get grip around interval. But then again interval it goes in predicted line and by the end the audience can exactly say word by word what dialogs are coming next.

Another problem is too loud and unrealistic characters of villains (i.e. media people), which are not different than the cool terrorists in other Bollywood movies. With such characters come unrealistic situations followed by unrealistic scenes. Whatever is happening nothing is believable and are just out of scope for happening in reality. The end also goes in the similar way. The hero easily fools all these very intelligent villains.

In short there is nothing significant to watch in the movie. Acting is below ordinary for the youngsters. Also the elders do not make any impression. Music, choreography, camera work is not impressive. Script has lot of holes, and direction is not up to point. Even after being shorter than the usual Bollywood movie, at many times movie feels just stretched without any significant events. Just watch the movie on your own risk. OK to watch on rented CD or on cable channels.
