Kunal Mehra lives a middle-classed lifestyle in Borivali, Mumbai, along with his disapproving dad, Purabi, and supportive mom, Kusum. He has a sweetheart in Mausam, an aspiring Journalist. Ever since he was 8 years of age, Kunal wanted to act in Bollywood movies much to his dad's displeasure. He did play the part of Bhagwan Shri Hanuman in a play in school, but has been not very successful in landing any major part in any movie. He gets a break when his look-alike, Karan Saxena, the leading man of his dad's production 'Super Star' has qualms about heights and is unable to act. Kunal steps into Karan's shoes, and even accompanies the unit to film in Bangkok, Thailand. Shortly thereafter the media explodes with the news that Karan has been injured, and Kunal has been killed in a car accident. Watch what impact this news has on the Mehra family, the Saxenas, Mausam, as well as on the outcome of the movie. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Perfect Entertainer!
8 August 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Rohit Jugraj, the same man who had given us the horrible "James (2005" was directing this one and it had Kunal Khemu whose last few releases (Dhol, Traffic Signal, Kalyug) failed to impress me, so I had almost written him off as just another child star who failed to make it. However, the only thing that made me watch this film was the fact that Tulip Joshi had signed it and her choice of scripts have never let me down (Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai, Matrubhoomi, Dhokha)... so I gave this one a try! And my oh my! This movie totally surprised me! It has everything you'd want in an entertaining film, and more! The storyline is in fact very clichéd and had it been directed a weak director, this movie would've headed to where it belonged- the trash bin, but Rohit Jugraj really proves himself by raising the bar of a film whose script wasn't very refreshingly original. Super Star is undoubtedly one of the better films to have come out of Bollywood this year (2008). It's a pity that not many people watched it probably because it didn't have star value or it was poorly promoted. Whatever the reason be, I'm sure this movie has breathed a new life into Khemu's career that almost crashed.

Coming to the performances, Sharat Saxena (best known for his performance in Ghulam) really really shines in this one. Reema Lagoo, Tulip Joshi and Aushima Sawhney do their parts well. Vrajesh Hirjee and Darshan Jariwala are a great combo but at the end of it, this is Kunal Khemu's movie! In fact, I feel this movie marks the arrival of Khemu as a leading man. Everything you could complain about him has been put to test in this film and boy oh boy! He's passed 'em with flying colors! Music-wise too, Shamir Tandon does a brilliant job. I liked his work in Page 3 too but this one has a much better soundtrack. "Don't I love you" is a decent number. "Ajnabi" is a beautiful song, but its "Mann Tu Talbat" (which is arabic and means "I love you") by Hamza which is my most favorite track from this movie, been on my playlist ever since it got released. Kudos to all for giving such a refreshingly entertaining flick!

PS: Watch out for the tribute to "Sin City". Crazy stuff!
