Bollywood Hero
SNL alum Chris Kattan plays himself - or a close approximation -- in this witty comedic mini-series. Frustrated that nobody in Hollywood will give him a chance as a serious actor, Chris signs on to star in a Bollywood production called Peculiar Dancing Boy. But filming in India offers its share of challenges, including showbusiness rivalries, production issues, and of course, angry bad guys that force the funnyman to become an all singing, all dancing action star, who rescues the girl in real life. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What follows are dopey cultural clashes; scuttled financing for the film; further wounds to Chris the character's professional self-esteem; and efforts, alas, at tender emotionalism and Acting."
‑ Ginia Bellafante, New York Times
"A great romp and often laugh-out-loud funny."
‑ Belinda Acosta, Austin Chronicle
"It must be said that Bollywood Hero is an entirely novel kind of slog."
‑ Troy Patterson, Slate
"Bollywood Hero is largely predictable, and when it isn't predictable, it's only because the characters act nonsensically."
‑ Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times
