The King of Bollywood

The King of Bollywood comes in as a satirical spoof attempt at the way the Hindi film industry (tagged as Bollywood) functions, of course with a liberal dose of exaggeration. Distributed in India under the iDream banner, the film is directed by Piyush Jha who earlier directed Chalo America (Ashish Chaudhary-Deven Bhojani). Om Puri stars in the title role while Hollywood actress Sophie Dahl gives her company in the film. Incidentally Om Puri starred in a similar Bollywood spoof film in 2001 titled Bollywood Calling directed by Nagesh Kukunoor.

Storyline

This is the story of a 'young' 51-year-old Karan Kumar (best known as KK), who in his heydays was the top star in Bollywood, the eponymous The King of Bollywood, a title that has stuck with him and has led to him having grandiose notions about himself. But the cruel fact is that KK is now nothing more than a shadow of his former self. He is a faded yet likeable hammy actor way past his "sell-by" date.

Enter Crystal Chaurasia, 24, an NRI documentary filmmaker of somewhat Indian origin. As a child, Crystal's favorite Bollywood Hero used to be KK (her grandmother used to show her videos of KK's films as sleep-inducers at bedtime). She comes to Mumbai from UK to make a documentary backed by The International Film Commission on the life and times of KK.

Eventually, KK realizes that he is past his prime and fuelled by the urging of his "secretary" Ratnesh Goyal, he tries to convince his son Rahul (25) to be launched as a hero, in order to carry on his legacy as a star. While Rahul is absolutely averse to Bollywood and has no intention of becoming an actor.

Crystal's presence triggers off KK's latent ambition and starts a chain of events that teeter on the edge of comic chaos.
