Movie Review: Bombay Talkies

4 directors, 4 poignant stories, one theme - Bollywood. What's missing? The punch.

Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap, Dibakar Banerjee and Zoya Akhtar direct (completely independent) stories about gay relationships, children pursuing their dreams, a father desperate to bring a smile on his sick daughter's lips, and a son who goes to great lengths to grant his elderly father's Amitabh-wish. Chicken Soup for the Crazy Bollywood Fan, but stop short from touching you. And a needless, ineffective and kinda irritating "recap of Bollywood" item number at the end.

Watch Go Goa Gone instead, and if you have already seen it once, check it out a second time - it's even more enjoyable since you catch a lot of jokes you might have missed the first time!
