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 Jaoge.... logic ie.
30 March 2009 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

Dhoonte Reh Jaoge for logic in the plot of this film, akin to the attempt of super-flop film Kunal & Paresh are making.

For starters, what was the logic behind the actors signing the dotted line. Beats me!!!

Kunal Khemu seems to be a good actor who at least is serious about giving his 100%. However, the accountant with locks of hair is not good characterisation.

Soha Ali Khan is hopeless. The only time her performance was average was in RDB. Safe to say, another spoilt star-child.

Paresh Rawal is passable.

Watching Sonu Sood requires pain-killer.

Johnny Lever finally gets some work after his self-imposed exile owing to the sudden emergence of the stalwarts on the TV comedy shows. Nevertheless, his idea of comedy is well past sell by date.

Hrishita Bhatt & Deepal Shaw were hardly there.

An attempt to make a spoof of movie is novel idea (it works in Hollywood) and if some serious writing was done, I am sure this movie would have worked wonders.
