We are aware of SRK’s movie Fan that is made under Yash Raj Films banner. But the makers don’t know that a lesser known producer already made a movie called Bollywood Diaries and the movie talks about a fan who comes to Bollywood to become a Star. But it’s not easy for anyone to make it big in Bollywood. After all, this is an industry which is famous for nepotism. ‘Bollywood Diaries’ has a lot of inside the industry jokes. And, I enjoyed the movie.
Imli is a prostitute and she is very professional at it because she treats all her clients in the same manner. Well, not really. She treats her clients from Mumbai better, because her secret wish is to become an actress. A sex worker trying to become Bollywood heroine may sound like an impossible dream to most people but not to Imli. She thinks this is achievable.
Vineeth is a film director who comes to the famous town of Kolkata. This town is famous for prostitutes. The director is trying to make a movie on the lives of sex workers. He meets Imli there. Imli interacts with the director and he notices that she has the talent.
He promises her that she will play the lead role in his upcoming movie. Imli feels like she is walking on air. Finally, her lifelong dream is about to come true.
She goes to Mumbai. But will this really be how she wants it to be? Or the director is a fraud? This is the story of Bollywood Diaries. It is about wanting something that is beyond your reach.
Raima Sen plays the role of Imli. Raima is perfect as the Kolkata-based prostitute. She has the big expressive eyes, which reflects the dreams of her character. Raima is also a Kolkata based actress who struggled in Mumbai. She is still not getting the roles she wants. So Imli is a lot like her. But Raima is from one of the most famous families of Kolkata, so she deserves a lot of credit for getting the body language of Prostitute perfectly. K.D. Satyam who directed the movie should also get the credit for getting a brilliant performance out of Raima.
The other actors like Ashish Vidyarthi performed well in their roles too. It is a fun movie to watch. This is for people who are tired of watching the same stars over and over again. You can surely give Bollywood Diaries a try. It is a small indie movie which will have an impact on you.
Vipin Patwa composed the music of the film. The songs are more situation based and they are strictly okay. They do not sound that bad when you are watching the movie. Bollywood Diaries gets thumbs up from me. I loved the movie and I promise you will too.
