Overview

After making a string of social commentaries, Canadian director Deepa Mehta satirizes India's beloved genre in the lighthearted romantic musical Bollywood/Hollywood. Indo-Canadian millionaire Rahul Rahul Khanna goes against the wishes of his mother and grandmother to date the Caucasian pop star Kimberly Jessica Paré; however, she gets killed in an accident and he is left devastated. His mother Moushumi Chatterjee seizes the opportunity and announces that he must get engaged to an Indian girl before his sister is allowed to wed. This is complicated by the fact that his sister is already engaged and pregnant. Under pressure, Rahul enlists the help of Sue supermodel Lisa Ray, a professional escort who agrees to play the part of his Indian fiancée. He thinks she is really Hispanic, and she claims to have no love for traditional Indian men. Throughout his sister's wedding preparations, Sue begins to befriend his entire family, including the tough old grandmother Dina Pathak. After some random bursts into songs and dances, Sue reveals her true identity and they fall in love.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Todd Kristel
If you're expecting a lighthearted romantic comedy with upbeat song-and-dance routines and a plot that's as predictable as it is thin, then you're right on the money. Bollywood/Hollywood doesn't feature particularly outstanding music or choreography, but it does have a fun-loving spirit, and writer/director Deepa Mehta handles it all with a loving wink. The film is rife with clichés, but Mehta does manage to twist a couple of them and toss in a few offbeat details to give the story a little bit of originality. She also drops several references to Bollywood films and actors, although viewers who are unfamiliar with this genre should still be able to follow the story line without any difficulty. The lead actors are both appealing, and some of the supporting actors, including Dina Pathak as Rahul's grandmother and Kulbhushan Kharbanda as Sue's father, are entertaining enough to steal their scenes. The film is a bit too earnest at times and it would have been improved if Mehta played around with the clichés more, but it's still enjoyable in its own silly way.
