Watch Filmistaan this weekend

But before you catch this festival-darling, ask yourself three questions

By Vatsala Chhibber  June 5th, 2014

Is life throwing lemons at you?

You can’t have it as bad as Sunny (Sharib Hashmi). A Bollywood aspirant who faces more rejection than all the contestants on The Bachelor combined, Sunny decides to temporarily assist an American film crew in Rajasthan. That’s when life finally takes a turn — for the worse. He is mistakenly abducted by Pakistani terrorists, but remains infuriatingly resilient.

Holi kab hai?

If you’re checking your calendar, portions of director Nitin Kakkar’s tribute to Hindi cinema might be lost on you, for Filmistaan is teeming with Bollywood catchphrases.

Do you prefer goofy to sexy?

No? You might be a little disappointed there, Shallow Hal. Hashmi has no drool-worthy six-pack to boast, but you will soon fall in love with his impeccable comic timing, barmy impersonations… and his curves.

Filmistaan releases across cinemas on June 6
