Fun Fabulous Film
3 March 2009 | by VarushkaSee all my reviews

This film rocked. I watched it the other day and I was pleasantly surprised by how charming, sincere and sweet this film was. The beautiful actresses, Sitara Hewitt and Koel Purie did a really good job in this film with their comic performances and the first time director Arun Bharali did a good job making this movie entertaining with its funny dialogues and characters. It was a comical interpretation of Bollywood Movies with some really great scenes. I am looking forward to seeing more of Arun Bharali's movies in the future. I have very rarely been entertained by movies in the past, but Bolly Doubles along with American Pie, There is Something About Mary, Zoolander and Borat are movies which have left me feeling really good, and given me lots of laughter. After watching Bolly Doubles I am very much interested in watching more Bollywood movies and am eagerly waiting for Arun Bharali's next movie!
