ligera y divertida.
Esperaba una comedia ligera como se dice en otros comentarios, pero me ha parecido malísima. Predecible, algunos personajes sin sentido alguno, sin gracia. Le falta chispa, he visto otras películas de bollywood muchísimo más entretenidas y divertidas. No recomiendo gastarse el dinero en esta película.
Para pasar un buen rato y ver algo sin trascendencia, simple y con final feliz.
La pelicula tiene la lijereza de una de las muchas peliculas indias de Bollywood de segunda categoria y tiene la ironia liviana de una obra de teatro.
Deepa Mehta's Bollywood/Hollywood vies for an ironic tone as it incarnates timeworn Bombay-programmer set pieces and plot contrivances into an American milieu. But the result is a film without a nation, without any comic grace, and often without even the slimmest technical efficiency. The plot—a browbeaten young millionaire pays a possibly Hispanic-passing-for-Indian escort to pose as his fiancée so his family will allow his younger sister to marry—is built to bore, and so Mehta packs the film with witless cross-cultural in-jokes: a cranky grandmother who ceaselessly quotes Shakespeare, slow and cheap musical numbers that wouldn't make it into a Hicksville home movie (how Bollywood is a conga line?), a young desi middle-schooler who snottily videotapes every family spat. Too amateurish to lampoon or evoke either film industry, Bollywood/Hollywoodis a movie that owes its presence in theaters to a certain ethnic soccer comedy still circulating like a virus.
Mehta, who herself emigrated to Canada in the 70s, sets her film in Toronto, and creates a standard-issue second-generation immigrant drama: assimilated Rahul (Rahul Khanna) needs to find the right kind of girl to keep his mother happy, so he pays bar pick-up Sue (Lisa Ray) to dress in traditional costume and pose as his intended. Mehta, who forged her reputation in the west with the powerful melodramas Fire and Earth, attempts to keep things pacy with slick photography and regular switches between "Hollywood" psychodrama and "Bollywood" dance and fantasy. But in the end the film is sunk by toe-curling dialogue and transparently awkward emoting. A let-down.
