Iss baar #FilmonPeCharcha mein I’d like to talk about Zoya Akhtar’s debut film, ‘Luck By Chance’, a film that combines insight with humour. The reason why I like this film is because of how it shows the Bollywood industry from the perspective of an insider. The film has a wonderful star cast, each playing their role perfectly, lekin mera favourite character toh Rishi Kapoor ka Romy Rolly hai, his character is so well written it’s such a delight to watch Rishi Ji in action. One thing that I really liked about the film is how the cameos by the stars actually have an impact on the plot of the film. In Shah Rukh Khan’s cameo, he says something about ‘pre-stardom friends being the ones who matter at the end of the day’, and I think about that dialogue and how it’s relevant to all of us and not just the stars. Agar aapne yeh film dekhi hai toh apne thoughts neeche comments mein bhej do
