NOT A REVIEW - just wondering whether this one will tone my funny bone with some good laughter...

Writer turned director, Umesh Shukla. Haven't seen any of the movies he's written. But is this Umesh Shukla the same as this one? It'll be really interesting if they are one and the same person because one of them shows Titanic, Dante's Peak and Shark Tale in his filmography. And there is one common film between them. Can we really look forward to some good visual effects?

Also interesting is the combination of actors. Soha Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu and Sonu Sood. I could never have that kind of imagination. Also Sonu Sood doing comedy will be well...different. True, we did see him try to make us laugh by playing a sort-of mannequin in Singh is Kinng, but that didn't involve much comic timing. There seems ample scope since the premise has fun written all over it - a producer hell-bent upon making a flop movie.

But it also has full potential of having more Hindi cinema references. And sure enough, a quick search gets you to this article that says exactly that. The usual suspects are all there - Sholay, DDLJ, etc.

Dhoondte Reh Jaoge is a film within a film. The film is a spoof on Bollywood's cult films.

We've seen quite a few of these lately. It has to be exceptionally funny and hit a different spot to make us laugh, right?

The songs don't look like they are anywhere above the average slapstick movie's songs. Don't miss the quick music review at milliblog.

And the promos are not too promising. I get the feel of non-stars behaving like wannabe stars. So, doesn't work. But we shall reserve judgment. Only a few hours to go...
