In the vein of "Bend It like Beckham," and "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," "Americanizing Shelley" is a contemporary "Pygmalion" like comedy, set in L.A., featuring an American country boy and a Himalayan village belle, thrown together in this "Middle America" meets "Middle East" charmer. Responding to a challenge thrown by the CEO of a Hollywood management company (Bridges), "Americanizing Shelley" tells the story of a wanna-be Hollywood player from the deep South, who sets out to Americanize an Indian girl straight from the Himalayas. Problems occur when our hero runs into cultural clashes while executing her American make over. Hes also working against a ticking clock which he thought was 8 weeks but is actually 6 weeks because thats when her family is coming to America for the wedding she told them is going to be taking place, otherwise she will be forced to go back home in disgrace. As he creatively teaches her all about the American way of life and what it takes be a Hollywood celebrity, he ends up learning a thing or two about his own life. Their clash in cultures soon gives way to understanding, unity and love as they begin to see the world through each others eyes.

Once again, I've discovered another Indian actress who I believe is so beautiful. Namrata Singh Gujral (Shelley) is absolutely gorgeous! From her nerdy confused beginnings to her sexy transition throughout the film, you can't help but wonder why Hollywood doesn't use more Indian actresses. They are all so beautiful.
Namrata Singh Gujral looks very close to my favorite Bollywood actress, Rani Mukherjee. I'll have to see if she's done more films. If you'd like to try a few Bollywood films that are kind of like this film, check out "Nayee Padosan", "Ishq", "Pyaar to Hona Hi Tha", and maybe "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai." This is just a few. There are hundreds of fabulous Bollywood films with good-looking guys and gorgeous girls and all that exciting Indian fashion.
I never heard of this movie before. I just found it on a whim in the store. And I'm glad I did.
The cast is likeable, the Indian music festive and Namrata is enchanting. Don't expect too much and you may be pleasantly surprised. Who could ask for anything more!
