Starring Irrfan Khan and Lara Dutta in the lead roles, Billu is a remake of the Malayalam hit Katha Parayumpol. Irrfan plays the barber who shared the tiffin with superstar Sahir Khan (Shah Rukh Khan) when they were carefree school kids. Now an adult, Billu is still very poor, living with his wife and two children in a Spartan hut, and Sahir is the “badshah” of Bollywood. In his review of the film, Shubhra Gupta said, “The film, geared towards the culmination of the meeting of the two opposing poles, is meant to thrive on the tensions created by the director, in the lives of Billu and Sahir. But with the exception of a few sequences that touched the emotion, Priyadarshan’s film lacks the essential drama that would have made ‘Billu’ such a memorable film.
