A finely-crafted satire
25 December 2004 | by sahana1See all my reviews

Bollywood Queen does a clever job of taking the genre of the typical mass-produced Indian film and weaving in a contemporary theme. The satire on the "Bollywood" movie is what makes this movie. If you haven't seen a Bollywood movie, expect to be a little baffled at the random song sequences and somewhat ludicrously simple themes (boy-meets-girl, forbidden love) . If you are familiar with Bollywood movies, you'll appreciate the caricatures that are played out.

The thing that makes this movie especially clever is that beyond the caricatures, there's humor and irony. For instance, the song sequences are obvious satires, but instead of the schlocky lyrics of a real Bollywood flicks, these satirical songs have hilarious lyrics.
