Surendra (Upendra) and Upendra (Upendra) are identical twins.
Surendra is a research scientist in Los Angeles working with
an old professor (Anant Nag). Upendra, a filmmaker from India,
lives with his brother Surendra. Upendra's aim to is make
an Oscar winning Hollywood film. They have a beautiful blond
neighbor called Manisha (Felicity) who is an American Indian.
Surendra is a shy guy and Upendra is a dashing guy. Surendra
admires Manisha, but Manisha likes Upendra for his vigor.
Surendra tells his professor about his problem. Then the professor
creates a robot which looks and acts like Upendra. That robot
acts the way Manisha wants it to be and makes Manisha fall
in love with Surendra. The professor's idea is to destroy
the robot once Manisha falls in love with Surendra. In the
process, the robot becomes selfish and it wants to remain
as lover of Manisha. The robot starts misbehaving and tries
to suppress Surendra. To counter this robot, the professor
creates a look-alike of Manisha so that robot Manisha attracts
robot Surendra. After coming to know about these look - alike
and powerful robots, mafia in USA kidnaps these people. The
climax deals with putting an end to this troublesome triplet.
Upendra donned three roles in this film and he looks pathetic
in the film. The only entertaining factor in his get-up is
the dialogues uttered by robot and that credit goes to dubbing
artist. Upendra has become too monotonous.
Nag: Anant Nag is just perfect for the role of robot-designing
professor. His action is subtle with fine mannerisms.
Story: Story by Upendra for this film is weird. The following
points are the glaring loopholes in the basic storyline.
comes to Hollywood in a bid to win Oscars. His grudge in
life is that the white people in Hollywood don't like black
skin. Hence they have not awarded Oscar to Lagaan. He wants
to get an Oscar by making a film in Hollywood. After 15
minutes of storyline, he is totally missing from the story
and again reappears towards the cliamax.
2. An identical man could be made only by cloning and not
by designing a robot. Funniest thing about this robot is
that it is programmed to listen to all languages in this
universe including that of a monkey.
3. When the cops in US catch this robot-guy, they marvel
about his abilities in stead of reporting the same to the
Screenplay - camera - direction: Screenplay of the film
is very loose. Direction is full of flaws. The director failed
to hold the attention of audiences towards the story. Camera
work by the director is also mediocre.
There is one typical dialogue of Upendra (hate women) sorts
in this film which says - 'Never trust females. The difference
between male and female is Fe. In Chemistry Fe stands for
Iron. And women tend to crush men with their iron like hard
and rigid mentality' - 'adi koorchomani chebite padukune
type'. The dialogue writers liberally used the expletive
'naa kodaka'. You find this expletive being used at
least once in every 5 minutes.
Music by guru Kiran is pathetic. Only song that could get
some attention is that song 'I dash you' because of the funny
lyric and mass beat. All other songs are bad.
There are only two Indian actors in this film (Upendra and
Ananth Nag). As if one Upendra is not enough, we have triple
role for him. Upendra's action gets onto your nerves. 'Hollywood'
is a boring film with unimpressive script. You can safely
avoid it, even when you get a chance to watch it for free
on your idiot box. It is disheartening to start the New Year
by watching a film like 'Hollywood'.
