    Old wine in new bottle.

    LBC is the same old story of a struggling person get into a love triangle and at the end try to resolve it. There are numerous examples in bollywood, ooh sorry ... in "Hindi Film Industry" like "Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman", "Rangeela", "Saudagar (Amitabh/Nutan)". But the difference between those movies and LBC is the execution. How it used the characters, also the special appearances and pass the right message to the viewer at the end. What I felt after the show about the movie was one of the very first words from Saurabh Shukla (the acting ... » read more

    Not bad, by any Chance….

    We all love films and films stars, but films and stars are not made overnight. It’s a big industry which has ample of talent with only few with luck making to the top. Down memory lane there have been films made on the functionality of Hindi film Industry, Chala Murai Hero Ban Ne, Film Hi Film and many more. Besides cameo by big stars these films were made on small level and that too with more on commercial feel good factor. Despite these we also had films like Kaagaz Ke Phool, Guddi, etc which also has film Industry as backdrop. Zoya ... » read more

    This is a movie with full of entertainment. The script is above avarege rather very good. The acting of konkona is superb. I like farhan for many other works but here his acting is overshadowed by konkona. Actually Farhan should concentrate on Direction now. For other actors I liked Dimple's acting she has shown her capability. ShahRukh is also fine. Juhi justified her role.Others are not too good nor bad.
    Joya's Direction is very good for her first movie, But she could have thought of cutting her fim a little short in some places.I liked her thought of planning a ... » read more

    Zoya Akhtar makes a decent debut with Luck By Chance, aided of course by special appearances by the who's who of the film industry.

    The movie offers a good peek 'behind the scenes' of the Hindi film Industry.

    Konkona delivers as per expectation, but is getting a little hackneyed as the victim in a relationship. Her boyfriends in most of her recent films seem to be unfaithful, either sleeping with men or women.

    Farhan is good but he remains in his own mould. Liked him in his avtaar of a hindi film hero though, specially ... » read more

    The best thing I liked about 'Luck By Chance" was Romy Rolly. Rishi Kapoor ,who , unfortunately has always been an under-rated actor, yet again delivers a flawless performance of a Sindhi Producer , in spite, of not using the usual Sindhi accent. Konkona , needless to say, was lovely and so was Farhan. As for Zoya , indeed she is a fine first Director by Chance, with so many background ghost directors, to assist her !!! » read more

    The film had shown the real world of the so called our Indian Film Industry. But in a different way. Konkana is again unfortunately had been a victim…’through this industry’.
    The very first scene of the film already shows you the bad side of it. The word which all we are quite familiar with it “COMPROMISE”. But later on the film gives out many meaningful messages, which if we apply in our general day to day life then I would guess it would be a great help from this film. Wonderful dialouges such as “meetha banana ho toh shakkar daalna he padta ... » read more

    Zoya Akhtar has wisely chosen a territory she is most comfortable with for her debut film. Being a celeb daughter, she is acquainted with the nitty-gritties of Bollywood and has thus been able to show those juicy hidden facts that we simply crave to know about. I dont know whether choosing brother Farhan for the lead role was done consciously, but he manages to pull it off.
    Isha Sharvani as the spoilt star daughter is simply adorable and Konkona as the aspiring actress is so convincing. When Farhan conveniently ticks her off to establish a liason with Isha, instead ... » read more

    Humourous with Deep Undertones

    Rating: 4/5

    Humourous with deep disturbing undertones about the Indian Film Industry (IFI) and its functioning...and that's just the first five minutes. Sona (Konkana), a struggling actress tries to get a foothold in the industry by taking aid of B-Grade producer Aly Khan, and what he asks from her in return is what will form a base for the rest of the movie. The casting couch, compromise and immorality amongst other things are nothing new to the struggler or the viewer. But what we see is whether there is even a faint possibility to avoid them, and if not, then ... » read more

    This movie is about two strugglers who want to just explore themselves in bollywood. One amongst them becomes superstar over a night “Luck by Chance” and other struggles a lot and enters in television industry. Now who becomes superstar and who struggles, that you only watch the film and get to know yourself haan, otherwise Zoya will kill me. She personally came at my place and requested me to not to disclose. So I am sshhhhh…
    Now about the film, I aahhhmm liked the movie. It describes the real factual world of our Hindi film industry. No masala, no such great entertainment ... » read more
