Storyline

An alcoholic and cancer-ridden U.S.-based film-maker, Patrick Stormaire (Pat Cusick), decides to produce a Bollywood movie, and travels to India. once there, he is met at the airport by the owner of Subramaniam Arts, Mr. Subramaniam (Om Puri), and subsequently introduced to the lead actors, Manu Kapoor (Navin Nischol), and Kajal (Perizaad Zorabian), and told that the title of the movie is 'Maut: The Death'. He will be unprepared for the shocks when he gets to meet the remainder of the cast and crew and find out that nothing is ever done on schedule; and last but not the least - the movie still does not even have a script.

Nagesh matures...
25 January 2002 | by reelGSee all my reviews

Hyderabad Blues was an experimental film that got lucky, Rockford was a pathetic filmmaking exercise and Bollywood Calling is finally a bonafide movie.

It has maturity, good plot lines, well-developed characters, humor and realism (though a little exaggerated at times). Even though it seems like a movie for a niche audience (people who are interested in the filmmaking aspect of movies), it's not just about that - it's a regular movie for regular audience.

It's a better-made movies than most of the junk we see lately. Watch it - it's fun! BTW, Om Puri is extremely funny. I've always seen him poor and dying but this role is particularly refreshing!
