Dhoondte Reh Jaoge is a 2009 Indian comedy film directed by Umesh Shukla and produced by UTV Motion Pictures. The film stars Kunal Khemu, Paresh Rawal, Sonu Sood, Soha Ali Khan, Dilip Joshi and Johnny Lever. It was released on 6 March 2009 in India, and 20 March 2009, in the United States[^2^].
The film revolves around a conman named Raj Chopra (Paresh Rawal) who convinces a naive film producer Anand Pawar (Kunal Khemu) to invest in a film that is guaranteed to flop. Raj plans to run away with the money and leave Anand bankrupt. He hires a struggling actor Aryan Kapoor (Sonu Sood) and a flop director Neeraj Rastogi (Johnny Lever) to make the film. He also casts Anand's girlfriend Neha Chattopadhyay (Soha Ali Khan) as the heroine.
The film they make is a mishmash of various Bollywood blockbusters such as Sholay, Lagaan, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. They name it Solay Se Lagaan Tak. However, to their surprise, the film becomes a huge hit and breaks all box office records. Raj's plan backfires and he has to pay back Anand and the distributors. He also loses Neha to Aryan, who falls in love with her during the shooting.
Dhoondte Reh Jaoge is a hilarious comedy that spoofs many popular Bollywood films and genres. It also pays tribute to the power of cinema and the passion of filmmakers. The film received mixed reviews from critics but was appreciated by the audience for its humor and entertainment value.The film has many funny scenes and dialogues that poke fun at the clichÃs and stereotypes of Bollywood cinema. For example, Aryan plays a double role of a police officer and a dacoit in the Sholay spoof. He also plays a freedom fighter in the Lagaan spoof, a lover in the Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge spoof and a Sikh truck driver in the Gadar spoof. He changes his costumes and accents according to the film he is imitating.
Another hilarious scene is when Raj tries to convince Anand to invest in the film by showing him a fake trailer. The trailer is made by editing scenes from various hit films and adding voice-overs by Raj and Neeraj. The trailer claims that the film has everything from action, romance, drama, comedy, patriotism, religion, sports and music. It also boasts of having a star cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor.
The film also has a twist in the end when it is revealed that Anand was aware of Raj's plan all along. He had hired a private detective to follow Raj and expose his fraud. He had also secretly changed the script of the film to make it more appealing to the audience. He had done this to teach Raj a lesson and to fulfill his dream of making a successful film. He also confesses his love for Neha and proposes to her.The film also has a cameo appearance by Salman Khan, who plays himself in a scene where he meets Aryan and praises his acting skills. He also gives him some tips on how to become a superstar. Salman Khan agreed to do the cameo as a favor to his friend Sohail Khan, who was the co-producer of the film.
The film was shot in various locations in Mumbai and Goa. The music of the film was composed by Sajid-Wajid and featured songs that were parodies of famous Bollywood songs. The title song of the film was sung by Sonu Nigam and Wajid Ali and was a spoof of the song \"Dhoom Machale\" from the film Dhoom.
Dhoondte Reh Jaoge is a film that celebrates the spirit of Bollywood and its fans. It is a film that makes fun of itself and its industry without being mean or disrespectful. It is a film that shows that sometimes, even a flop can become a hit. aa16f39245
