What Price Bollywood?

My review of the surprisingly sharp and savvy Luck by Chance is live.

If it's playing at a theater near you, I suggest checking it out: It's pretty damned entertaining even if you don't get all the in jokes.

well. she spends a lot of time assisting other directors. and the actor is one of the best film maker of india today. so the movie must be good. but people in india are saying its not a brilluiant movie but a average one

You know it's funny — I've always owndered why the Indian press is so hard on its own movies.

I suspect that part of it is that someone like me sees maybe 15 or 20 of them in a year, while homegrown critics see hundreds. But I can't help but feel that there's something else going on.
