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)

Trivia

Zayed Khan was playing Sonu Sood's role when it was launched It was to be his home production film. When Farah left the film , Zayed still hung on waiting for new producer's. When the first advertisement for the film came out in paper, Zayed Khan was furious. UTV had given Kunal Khemu more preference and billed him higher then Zayed in the credits. Zayed decided to leave the film. UTV promised him it was a mistake and they would fix it, but by then he had already made up his mind. See more »

Lol!
11 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

Umesh Shukla is a zany filmmaker & 'Dhoondte Reh Jaoge' proves that.

'Dhoondte Reh Jaoge' is about two-good-for-nothing guys who plan to make a Flop film. A unique & crazy idea! Some jokes are so so funny that you get into a full-throated roar! While some are like Akshay Kumar's comedy films, completely bland.

The first hr is entertaining, the second is not. It picks up in The pre-climax, when the premiere takes place... it's hilarious! Especially the so-done Lagaan portion. The climax, however, leaves no impact. But I don't know why, I get a strong feeling that this film will gain a Cult following in the coming years.

Performance wise, Paresh Rawal & Johny Lever rule the show, with their impeccable comic-timing. Both are superb. Kunal Khemu is lovable. The highly-talented guy isn't getting his due. Right from his childhood days to now, his acting has always been super. Sadly, none of his films have done well, and neither has made a huge fan-base. Let's hope he gets what he deserves in the coming time. Sonu Sood is passable. Soha Ali Khan is, as usual, dull. Dilip Joshi stands out. Shabbir Ahmed is excellent in a cameo.

This is surely not a good film, but much better than the crap going on right now.
