Storyline

London-based Crystal Chaurasia convinces the International Film Commission to authorize a documentary on Bollywood's yesteryear mega-actor, Karan Kumar. She travels with her photographer, Jeremy, to Mumbai and not only gets to meet the legendary actor but also his publicity-shy son, Rahul; and alcoholic and reclusive former-actress wife, Mandira. It is here Crystal will be drawn into continuing her documentary in London where she will witness the making of Karan's next movie 'Dhak Dhak' in which he decides to not only produce and direct but also hilariously play the role of a college student.

The Fabulous Om Puri!
22 April 2013 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

Piyush Jha's Under-Rated 'King of Bollywood' is a funny tale, that reminds us how Fabulous An Actor Om Puri is. Puri, a legend, is at his best!

'King of Bollywood' Synopsis: A British journalist decides to make a documentary about a faded Bollywood star of yesteryear.

'King of Bollywood' is funny & takes a look at the off-screen life of a faded film-star. The Screenplay works, because it has its share of wit & humor. Piyush Jha delivers wonderfully as a Director.

I can't imagine 'King of Bollywood' without Om Puri. As the faded Bollywood star, Puri plays the narcissist with magnificent ease. He's a joy to watch from start to end.

On the whole, 'King of Bollywood' Salutes The REAL King of Bollywood - Om Puri.
