Dhoondhte Reh Jaoge is a 2009 Hindi comedy film directed by Umesh Shukla and starring Paresh Rawal, Kunal Khemu, Soha Ali Khan and Sonu Sood. The film revolves around two men who try to make a flop film in order to earn money from the financiers. However, their plan backfires when the film becomes a hit.
The film is a spoof of various Bollywood films and genres, such as Sholay, Lagaan, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. The film also features Johnny Lever, Dilip Joshi, Asrani and other comic actors in supporting roles. The film was released on 6 March 2009 and received mixed reviews from critics and audiences.
Dhoondhte Reh Jaoge is available to watch online on Google Play Movies, YouTube and Amazon Prime Video. You can also download the film in HD quality from these platforms. The film has a runtime of 135 minutes and a rating of U (Universal) by the Central Board of Film Certification.
The film tries to be a satire on the Bollywood industry and its formulaic films, but ends up being a parody of itself. The film lacks originality and freshness, and relies on clichÃs and stereotypes to create humor. The film also suffers from poor editing, weak direction and a predictable plot.
The only saving grace of the film are the performances of the lead actors, especially Paresh Rawal and Johnny Lever, who manage to evoke some laughs with their comic timing and expressions. Kunal Khemu and Soha Ali Khan are decent in their roles, while Sonu Sood plays his part well. The music of the film is forgettable and does not add much to the film.
Dhoondhte Reh Jaoge is a film that could have been a hilarious comedy, but ends up being a mediocre and boring affair. The film is not worth watching, unless you are a fan of Paresh Rawal or Johnny Lever. The film is a flop in every sense of the word.
The film was released on 6 March 2009 in India and other countries. The film was a disaster at the box office, earning only Rs. 10.5 crore (US$ 2.16 million) worldwide against a budget of Rs. 20 crore (US$ 4.1 million). The film failed to recover its cost and was declared a flop by trade analysts.
The film received mostly negative reviews from critics, who criticized the film for its poor script, direction, editing and music. The film was also compared unfavorably with the Hollywood film The Producers, which had a similar plot of making a flop film for profit. The film was nominated for four awards at the 2010 IIFA Awards, but did not win any.
The film had some positive aspects, such as the performances of Paresh Rawal and Johnny Lever, who made the film watchable with their comic skills. The film also had some funny moments in the spoof scenes, where it parodied some of the iconic Bollywood films and scenes. The film also tried to convey a message of honesty and integrity in the film industry.
However, these aspects were not enough to save the film from being a flop. The film failed to impress the audience and the critics, who expected a better comedy from the makers of Phir Hera Pheri and Malamaal Weekly. The film was a disappointment for the fans of Paresh Rawal and Kunal Khemu, who had given some hit comedies in the past. aa16f39245
