Sholay, DDLJ and Lagaan revisited in Dhoondte Reh Jaoge

By Bollywood Hungama News Network

Come March 6 and the audience will be treated to the laugh-a-thon Dhoondte Reh Jaoge. The film which stars Kunal Khemu, Sonu Sood, Soha Ali Khan, Paresh Rawal, Deepal Shaw, Johnny Lever and Asrani promises to be a mixed bag of laughs. Bollywood Hungama has decided to give its viewers a sneak peek into what to expect in this laugh riot.

The audience is in for a treat is what the director Umesh Shukla says. "DRJ is a film based on the entire process of filmmaking and Bollywood as a whole. It isn't based on any one particular story as such, so the viewer is taken on a joy ride while this film is being shot."

However, there are a few scenes re-enacted from classics like Sholay, DDLJ and Lagaan", to which we are promptly told, "...as DRJ is based on films, we have a film within our film that is being shot. The title of that film is Sholay Se Lagaan Tak. We are not trying to spoof these classics in anyway."

The director later adds, "Today when everything has become so intense with the rising prices and the recession coupled with the mounting exam tension, DRJ offers a much needed reprieve from the daily stress and strains in life."

Talking about the scenes from the three classics he says, "Yes we have certain scenes that are re-enacted from these classics, but in no way do we want to offend anyone's feelings. Besides once the film is released and the story seen, will you actually understand what I mean. Besides this, these scenes have been done so aesthetically that even the makers of these respective films will have a laugh at DRJ and I am sure will not mind a bit."

Concluding our small chat, Umesh Shukla says, "DRJ is going to be a big stress buster this season and I am certain of that. So apart from including three classics, DRJ also has the humour to tickle the audience's funny side."
