Product Description

In a "bouncy Bollywood meets Hollywood romantic comedy" (BBC Films), Ali Larter stars as feisty B-list actress Marigold Lexton, who, stranded and broke in Goa, India, after financing flops on her low-budget film, lands a role in a musical to pay her way home. Eager to prove herself, she seeks famed choreographer Prem Rajput's (Bollywood superstar Salman Khan) guidance, and a whirlwind romance begins...until Marigold discovers Prem holds a powerful, inescapable past--and a future that holds no place for her.

I am probably one of the few people on this planet who saw this film in a movie theater. It bombed at the box office, mostly because the movie was given zero promotion from the studio. Still, as a fan of Bollywood movies, I really enjoyed it.

This movie is in English, making it a good choice for anyone looking to check out Bollywood for the first time. It follows the classic Bollywood love story formula, which a lot of people have ridiculed it for. Yes, it is predictable. But it is still done well. Personally, I prefer "predictable and done well" over a lot of Hollywood movies that have absurd swerves and surprises that don't make sense.

Anyway, the film has Bollywood superstar Salman Khan and American actress Ali Larter from the TV show "Heroes". The musical numbers are done pretty well as is the dancing. Overall, the movie is a lot of fun. The two of them make a nice couple, and I actually bought the love story. I highly recommend the film.

If your not sure about Bollywood or those kind of crazy, perky, jump into song and dance Indian movies that seem to run forever, this might be a good intro or, at least, a more palatable choice.

Synopsis: A barely B-movie grade, unhappy, crass, American actress(Ali Larter) gets stranded in India. There she discovers friendship, work, love and a chance to be her true self. Her love interest Prem(Salman Khan), a choreographer teaching her to dance, holds secrets of his own, and the story unfolds in typical Bollywood fashion with musical numbers, comedy and romance. Add a few gentle twists and gorgeous, Indian scenery, and you have a very pleasant, although predictable( aren't they all!), romantic comedy.

Ali Larter makes no bones about lack of dancing ability which matches her character. She's done a few obscure movies and lots of TV and modeling(recently seen tastefully attired on a Cosmo cover). And she does a good job transforming from B-word diva want-to-be to sensitive, vulnerable heroine. She also sings and learns to dance. In the extras, she comes across very down to earth and sweet in what indeed had to be a most challenging role. Hopefully, we'll see more of her.

Her famous Indian co-star, Salman Khan is an amazing and somewhat peculiar sort. According to Ali, he hardly rehearses, learns the dance steps lickety-split, and he's a bit difficult to work with. I think his low toned, suave voice would suit radio perfectly. I love the secondary actors best for their comedy. Their sense of timing along with that accent always cracks me up.

American director Willard Carroll who studied tons of Bollywood flicks puts it together nicely.

I have seen few Bollywood movies in Hindi before despite the fact I don't speak the language so I was delighted to see an American-Indian co-production on the genre. Salman Khan is hot, ladies! He is emotional in this movie and I wish the producers would have inserted an interview of him on this particular work in extra. The documentary on Marigold is very insightful though. I found Ali more likeable as the film went on but not so at ease in the dancing scenes. It is a joyful movie with emotional moments and funny lines. You will enjoy it!

I absolutely love this movie and have lost count of how many times I've watched it now. This movie was the first time I'd ever seen either one of the two lead characters (Larter and Khan) and I loved them both in their roles.

Khan is an incredible dancer and he has the most soulful eyes--the camera truly loves him. His acting was excellent, and I thought he played his role convincingly and was quite romantic. Larter played her role in a convincing manner as well, and I enjoyed watching her undergo a dramatic transformation due to Khan's unwavering love for her.

The musical numbers were excellent, with one particularly steamy performance by Larter. There was plenty of comedy, which included poking fun at how Bollywood movies are supposedly made. There was also a lot of beautiful Indian scenery and costumes, which made it a feast for the eyes.

I'm loaning this dvd to my daughter, who has never seen a Bollywood movie before. I think this movie would be excellent to watch as an introduction to Bollywood movies because it is in English, it's not really long, and yet it has the flavor, or essence, of Bollywood.

I can't recommend this movie highly enough. It's brilliant.

Hollywood meets Bollywood in the '07 film 'Marigold', an enjoyable romp through Bombay starring Indian luminary Salman Khan and American actress Ali Larter. The movie begins rather slowly but as the relationship between Salman and Ali builds you'll find yourself slowly drawn into the storyline. Definitely not a classic but it does provide a solid evening of entertainment with exotic scenery, colorful costumes and music that is pure Bollywood. If you're unfamiliar with Indian films or reading subtitles this English language production will serve as a solid and painless primer on the Indian cinematic experience that may intrigue the audience enough to explore this ever-growing phenomenon further.

My Rating: -3 1/2 Stars-.
