In focus: A guide to making great movies about the movies

"Luck By Chance" and "Rangeela" depict the struggles of actors, while "Bombay Talkies" illustrates how movies are part of life in India. "The Dirty Picture" delves into mental health issues triggered by the cut-throat entertainment industry, and "Supermen Of Malegaon" portrays a town where residents shoot slapdash remakes of popular Bollywood films on a shoestring budget.
