Watch Luck by Chance - Alternative Versions.
Are you fascinated by the place that is the Hindi Film Industry? Have
you obsessed about the superstars there and religiously followed what's
happening in their lives? Have you ever wondered how this Industry
works? Have you ever secretly harbored ambitions of being in this dream
land? If yes, what are your chances of surviving and making it big?
Zoya Akhtar's maiden directorial venture 'Luck By Chance' is a thumping
answer to these and many more questions!
If Om Shanti Om was a take on Hindi Cinema of the 1970s then 'Luck By
Chance' is a highly authentic take on the Hindi Film Industry in the
modern era. It's a fantastic behind the scenes journey into this dream
land known as Bollywood. No wonder that this authenticity could have
only come from one of the well known families of the Industry - the
Akhtar family, who are the makers of this film. The tale is essentially
of their own immediate environment and it is a story that is told well!
The screenplay revolves around the two central characters played by
Farhan Akhtar and Konkona Sharma trying to make it big in Bollywood.
Farhan comes to Mumbai from Delhi, lives in his aunt's house and
borrows money from all quarters whereas Konkona is in a 'mutually
beneficial' relationship with some producer to get a lead role and also
has a friend who is a homo-sexual, BUT wait, before you scream 'cliché'
and think that this will go the Madhur Bhandarkar way, you realize that
the treatment is not as sensationalistic and hovering around extremes
as Madhur Bhandarkar's movies. Luck By Chance is subtle but highly
The two lead character's lives take us inside and up-close to the
scenes behind the camera. We have the Desi producer played by Rishi
Kapoor, a yesteryear's starlet (Dimple Kapadia) who is launching her
talentless daughter (Isha Sherwani) and apart from these characters we
have the who's who of Bollywood playing themselves. Luck By Chance is a
The film is an unabashed take on Hindi Cinema and it does not hold back
from mocking it. We have one director saying "What the hell do I have
to do with the script, I am not making the film for a film festival!"
The same director hands over a Hollywood DVD to the film writer and
tells him to Indianise the story! It also shows the corporate culture
setting into bollywood, the corporates who want to model themselves
after the Hollywood studios and describe the script as the main
property only to change their stance later and determine whether to
finance or not on the basis of which super-star is playing the lead!
Hrithik Roshan is a sport, who in an extended cameo charmingly portrays
the character of 'Zaffar Khan', a bratty superstar who walks out of a
film and creates enormous trouble for the veteran producer. The same
role after being rejected by other established actors and after a
series of fortunate circumstances, struggle and talent is bagged by the
protagonist Vikram played by Farhan Akhtar.
The story of Luck By Chance is well woven. It wonderfully depicts the
journey of each of the characters. The negative shades in each of them
are shown, not in implausible extremes, but in a true to life way. How
charmingly it captures those very real things jealously and ego
battles between friends, relatives who have the word, 'Riddance' on
their mind when you live with them away from your home, of how the best
of relationships break when individual interests become dominant.
It is surprising to see the high degree of naturalness, intensity and
charm that Farhan Akhtar brings to his character. It's an A grade
performance which makes you speculate that a few years down the line,
Farhan will be known as an actor who also directs and not vice versa.
Konkona playing the female lead has a role which was perhaps written
with only her in mind and she does an excellent job. The veteran Rishi
Kapoor shows us what an enigmatic force he still is behind the camera!
Playing the veteran producer his is the most endearing character in the
film! The rest of the ensemble cast Dimple Kapadia, Isha Sherwani,
Juhi Chawla, and Sanjay Kappot do justice to their roles. A special
compliment goes out to the guy who plays Farhan's friend. The flame of
jealousy and complexes that this character is meant to convey are tough
to depict but he succeeds effortlessly.
The cameos are brilliantly pulled off, with Aamir and SRK shining in
their separate parts. Aamir is shown shooting for a period film in a
brilliantly setup set and you wish that such period movies were
actually made by the Hindi Film Industry. SRK is in a 2 minute cameo,
where in a party, in an interaction with the new star that Farhan
Akhtar's character has become, gives the most powerful and defining
lines in the movie, lines which were perhaps not given to the dialog
writers but have been his own firm values that have made him the
biggest superstar of this Industry.
As always, Excel Entertainment brings excellent production values to
the film in each department. The music composed by the trio of Shankar
Ehsaan Loy surely doesn't disappoint and it slowly grows on you after
watching the movie. The track 'Yeh Zindagi Bhi' stands out.
Lastly, hats off Zoya Akhtar and Farhan Akhtar for making a film that
they knew at the very outset will appeal to only a niche audience. It
is this experimentation and willingness to experiment that is required
in this Multiplex era.
Luck By Chance is a feast that is a must see for people who are in awe
of the Indian film fraternity.
