If you are looking for a fun Bollywood flick then THIS IS NOT IT. The acting is terrible, the plot is ridiculous and all the sensual innuendos are not at all what I was expecting from the previews. I couldn't finish it and had to turn it off. Stay away. Save your money.

**MAY CONTAIN SPOILER**

This movie was ridiculous, the plot was weak, the characters were predictable and shallow, the scenarios implausible and the subject matter was cliche. First off, the character, Harry, is hell bent on getting married to a girl from his home country, whether he is 'ready' for it or not. After getting engaged he continuously puts himself in compromising situations with a woman he meets at school.Then somehow this woman manages to come to India for his wedding while he is struggling with his conflicting emotions about the decisions he is making AND climb into his room the week before his wedding because she, 'couldn't sleep.' It's only after they do sleep together when he magically realizes that an arranged marriage is a mistake and he can't go through with it. This film was so empty and shallow it isn't even worth watching AS a cheesy romance flick.
One redeeming quality it did have was this, in the last 2ish minutes of the film, Harry actually grows up a little, I mean, he still wants 'no strings attached' sex from his university 'friend,'but at least he doesn't want an arranged marriage anymore...and that's good, right?

Ordinarily, I do not review films. However, this one was SO bad - I feel compelled to warn others away. As background, I LOVE films like Devdas and Asoka, even Bride and Prejudice was fun. I was hoping this movie would fall in line with the feel good, Bollywood genre that I so love. That did not happen here! There was zero chemistry between Harry and his lady love, Teresa. The supporting cast couldn't even save this flick- Harry's father was a horrible cliche about fat, old men who have a thing for young, hot models. His mother was a bitter, unhappy harpy of a woman while his friends were walking dirtbags who wouldn't understand manogomy if it smacked them in their faces! Really, there was not a single redeeming facet to this mess of a film. Sorely Disappointed!!! Skip it, skip it, skip it!

Excellent in all departments, especially the costumes and design. Jen Estes looked amazing in the sari with the choice of color and jewelry; Unfortunately not more than one song/dance. Simple storyline, great dialogs, a rather subdued finish. Could have had some more punch/drama in it and so over the top stuff is missing here, which makes Bollywood Bollywood. Rai, the lead brought a certain sophistication. Recommend films like Hollywood Bollywood, Bride and Prejudice for those who like mix of cultures

The writing: uninspired. The acting: uneven (the main character fairly awesome, the rest so-so). The story - so interesting, it makes up for any shortcomings elsewhere.

Loved being able to go see a movie with my teens. They enjoyed the movie just as much as I did. There are some very talented actors in this movie and I am sure we will see them in future films. If you enjoy light, funny romantic comedies.... it is a must see!

Like so many movies these days, it started out so good. You fall in love with Harry from the start. He is smart, gentle, and kind. Then come the raunchy bits of such comedies, and the condescending attitude towards the value of virtue and religion. It could have been a good movie that extolls the good and joyful aspects of a people, religion and traditions along with the good humor associated with people as they try to make their lives work with that same culture. Instead in the end, the movie debased the people and culture.

Uses the conflicts of modern day society versus traditions and culture webbed into a bit of romance and the challenges of friendships.

It was ok, poor acting. Not what I expected. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Did tell the viewer what an arrange marriage is all about.
