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)

Mildly Entertaining!!!
10 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Film is a cocktail of Hollywood's Bowfinger and The Producers (What Bollywood film ain't??). It spoofs Lagaan, Gadar and Sholay while its own story follows Rangeela's path towards the end. To be honest there are some funny sequences and if you just drop your guard a bit then this film turns out to be very entertaining. Cast does OK but the biggest drawback is the number of songs particularly one where there is ample skin show for no reason. Soha Ali is the other weak link just like she was in Mumbai meri jan. Among others, Johnny Lever almost steals the show with his Pervez Musharaff (Ashraf) act. I say almost as the makers never really explored his character in detail. All in all, if you go with the flow you will be just fine.
