Will Luck by Chance attract the viewers at all?

Will Luck by Chance attract the viewers at all?

Zoya Akhtar, the sister of Farhan Akhtar had worked together with Farhan Akhtar in successful films in the past including Dil Chahta Hai and Lakshya. Dil Chahta Hai did fantastic business in India and abroad with Saif Ali Khan, Amir Khan, Akshay Khanna, Dimple Kapadia, Preeti Zinta all doing extremely well in their respective roles. The music of the film was successful and the locations in Australia were marvelous.

This is the first time Zoya Akhtar had directed a film and in her first directed film she had cast her own brother Farhan Akhtar in the major role in the film Luck By Chance. The story revolves around the life of Farhan Akhtar.

He had been shown as a common man who had arrived in Bombay to become a successful actor. Many actors all across the country have dreams and it was not unusual on the part of Farhan Akhtar too in the film. He had over there and realized that life was that complex and problematic.

He started handling pressure situations well. He realized that every successful actor in Bombay and the film industry had experienced failures at some point of their careers and it was nothing unusual for them. The success and the failures of Farhan Akhtar filled the entire film.

He even acted in films produced by those producers who only believed in casting established actor and actresses who had created a name for themselves. Farhan Akhtar got a scope of acting such types of films. He even entered into an affair with the leading actress of such films.

Hrithik Roshan, Konkona Sen Sharma, Rishi Kapoor and Juhi Chawla played notable roles in the film and all of them gave realistic performances. Hrithik Roshan danced excellently as usual in the limited sequences created in the film. There were other good performances in the film given by Dimple Kapadia, Saurabh Shukla and Sanjay Kapoor.

Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy composed the music for the film and had given decent songs in the film. The only worry lies in the fact that a number of big budget films are either released or are going to be released in 2009. Films like Dilli 6, Billu Barber, Kites are going to dominate bollywood films in 2009.

In that scenario, Luck By Chance can expect moderate response, definitely not an exceptional reaction from the viewers. Even if that happens Zoya Akhtar should consider herself to be lucky.
