Storyline

A Bollywood producer-turned-petty thief, Raj Chopra (Paresh Rawal), who blames Subhash Ghai, Yash Chopra, Ronnie Screwvala, and others for his failures, and an unemployed Chartered Accountant, Anand Pawar (Kunal Khemu), cook up a scheme to attract 5 Crores each (50 million rupees) from 21 investors (a total of 105 Crores). Raj invests 5 Crores to make the worst possible movie 'Solay Se L'Gaan Tak', with the worst possible crew and actors, ensure that it has a storyline that is sure to fail at the box office, and pocket the remainder of the 100 Crores. All goes according to plan - but then Murphy's Law prevails - resulting in hilarious chaos. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Dhoondte reh jaaoge?
20 December 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Why a title like that? it doesn't mean anything in the film

Well Spoofs on movies are done to death on MTV and now also with the never ending list of comedy soaps which struck the small screen like hell

The film has a plot lifted from THE PRODUCERS but the movie is funny

There is a plot thankfully which is again not too innovative

The film is funny but, the entire plan of making a flop movie works well sadly the RANGEELA type love angle between Kunal-Soha isn't well handled and seems like a side plot

EVen the spoofs are there but not too hilarious overall just in bits and spurts

The entire climax too is too clichéd

Yet we didn't expect anything from the film yet it does entertain

Direction by Umesh Shukla is average- below average Music is okay, but too many songs spoil the show Editing is loose, with scenes dragging many times

Amongst actors Kunal Khemmu looks his part and acts very well, his comic acting which was below average in DHOL and good in SUPERSTAR is improving with every film Soha is alright, nothing much to do actually Sonu Sood is shown in 4 roles and he is average He is bad in the Dharam imitating scene which is mastered on the small screen by many stand up comedians Amongst rest Johny Lever is hilarious Paresh Rawal is ageing but he is very funny here though nothing new Liked his outburst in the hotel narrating the story Dilip Joshi is okay
