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)

Trivia

Zayed Khan was playing Sonu Sood's role when it was launched It was to be his home production film. When Farah left the film , Zayed still hung on waiting for new producer's. When the first advertisement for the film came out in paper, Zayed Khan was furious. UTV had given Kunal Khemu more preference and billed him higher then Zayed in the credits. Zayed decided to leave the film. UTV promised him it was a mistake and they would fix it, but by then he had already made up his mind. See more »

Funny!
12 August 2009 | by SherazadeSee all my reviews

This movie had me in stitches, just like the film within this film, you'll find yourself laughing for all the wrong reasons and at all the wrong scenes that aren't even meant to be funny.

Kunal Khemu (or as I like to call him...'Cutie-pie') plays an up and coming accountant who gets dragged into the world of movie-making when one day while out celebrating the birthday of his girlfriend (played by Soha Ali-Khan) he is conned by a movie-producer (played by Paresh Rawal). Exhausted from butting heads with Raj Chopra (Rawal's character) he devises a plan with the help of Chopra to pull a Ponzie scheme on a bunch of fellow movie producers to invest in an epic film project they plan to sabotage for their selfish purposes.

Top notch performances by Paresh Rawal, Kunal Khemu, Sonu Sood & Soha Ali-Khan, although I could have done without seeing Soha Ali-Khan dressed up as Jodhaa from 'Jodhaa Akbar' (just one of the many films spoofed within the film).
