Where do aspiring movie stars from the small towns and suburbs of Canada go for fame and glory when they’ve grown up "Canadian" during the week, and South Asian on the weekends? Shove over Hollywood: these kids are heading for Bombay — the heartland of the Indian film biz. With an audience of a billion people and 800 features a year in production, there’s more action, glitz and tap-dancing than LA star-makers could ever imagine. Bollywood Bound tracks the progress of several young Canadians — including an Ajax, Ontario beauty queen turned Indian television mega-star, an aspiring brother and sister duo from small town Alberta, and a hopeful starlet from a suburb of Vancouver — as they battle monsoons, mosquitoes, and the 146,000 other people who arrive in Bombay each year with stars in their eyes. A charming film that celebrates Canada, India, kids with dual cultures, and dreams of fame on the other side of the globe. Lynne Fernie.
