I have to say, this is one of the funniest movies that I have seen in quite some time. I am not of an Indian decent, but I was still able to pick up on most of the humor. I was able to watch this movie recently while recovering from my oral surgery. A week in bed is a great time to watch movies.
Director Manish Acharya did a really good job in this Bollywood mockumentary of a reality TV game show. The movie focuses on folks of an Indian decent from the tri-state area, who go on a low-budget talent show where they compete for a $25,000 prize.
The characters include a cold motherly figure Rrita Kapoor, as the luminous Shabana Azmi. Then there is a hopeful rap artist Turbanotorious B.D.G., played by Ajay Naidu. And I can’t forget to mention the aspiring Bollywood movie star Opama Menon, portrayed by Ayesha Dharker. And, of course, Josh Cohen, played by Michael Raimondi, who is an Indian-loving white dude. And, last but not least, there is the perturbed 2nd-generation teen Preeti Patel (Ishitta Sharma). All in all, this is a great cast and each plays their role well in the film.
I think that if you watch this film, you will not be disappointed. It is rated at 7.2 at the IMDB and over 70% of viewers liked it on RottenTomatoes. You may miss some of the humor, if you are not Indian, but overall you will have quite a few laughs from this wonderful movie.
