started off well, but fizzled out badly

I expected a lot more from this film. It started off very well; the scenes when the timid bumbling Indian actor (played by the awesome Peter Sellers) makes blunder after blunder to accidentally ruin a movie production was hilarious. And when he gets invited by mistake to a fancy party by the producer of the film, the scenes where he approaches different gets, gets into trouble almost every step ... read more

An Indian actor screws up royally during the filming of a costume epic. When the 'Fire this guy' list gets confused with the studio head's guest list for a party, he appears there and everyone assumes he must belong. A great many sight gags and misunderstanding gags are played out at the party where the rest of the film takes place.

"1.11. Heavy on improvisation and Jacques Tati-like wonder. Peter Sellers plays hilarious indian Hrundi V. Bashki (some might find the performance racist, but they are mostly idiots) who is trouble in two legs. Bashki is invited to Hollywood party by accident and revels the emptiness and hypocricy of Hollywood lifestyle. "

"22.10. Digibox, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Blake Edwards The largely inferior and more ordinary little brother of Play Time. Somewhat racist and hasn't stood the test of time as well as, say, A Shot in the Dark by Edwards. Such a slow-paced comedy could do with some more visual jokes. Sellers is still very entertaining to watch and at least the quirky Henry Mancini/Blake Edwards atmosphere is there. "

"a lot has already been said about the party so I'd be brief. It is a Peter Sellers movie and cast works with him brilliantly. Great time pass and some funny moments. Some people think it is offensive to Indian people and all, I don't get that criticism at all. had a good time."
