Movie Review : Dhoondte Reh Jaoge

Film: Dhoondte Reh Jaoge (Comedy)
Cast: Kunal Khemu, Sonu Sood, Soha Ali Khan, Paresh Rawal
Direction: Umesh Shukla
Duration: 2 hours 10 minutes
Critic’s Rating:**

True. Dhoondte hi reh jaoge, for that side-splitting comedy that's supposed to give you paisa-vasool entertainment. Though, to be honest, if you still keep looking -- and manage to sit through the tedious first-half -- you might glean a few laughs in the second half, when the film actually tries to spoof all the successful Bollywood films from Sholay to Lagaan.

Paresh Rawal is an unsuccessful film producer who is desperate to make a film and strike a comeback. He gets his chance when Kunal Khemu, a frustrated chartered accountant, decides to junk honesty for char-sau-bisi (fraud), because his behenji-type girlfriend (Soha Ali) is hell bent on settling down. Now behenji, being a fan of Biswajit and other Bengali actors, also dreams of being a big star herself. So her CA boyfriend wants to kill two birds with a stone. He wants to make Rs 100 crore by making a flop film and he wants to cure her of her Bollywood ambitions by casting her as the heroine who will never get a role after the dismal show. The devious duo also manage to rope in the reigning star, Sonu Sood and happily sound the clapper board for their dream venture.

But hey, what's this. The premier show, which was supposed to be a tryst with tomatoes and eggs, turns out to be a heavily applauded affair, with the audience rolling in the aisles at this ungodly mix of Sholay, Gadar and Lagaan. Now that would have been okay, if you were applauding too. Ironically, you end up lamenting the great loss, for the film actually had a great potential and comes loaded with some fine actors. They all try hard but the juvenile script terribly lets them down.
