For unabashed, expansive love stories which dwell in that exalted state of heartbreak, go no further than a Bollywood film. NAMASTEY LONDON, which came out in 2007, is only the latest example of this Indian cinema's penchant for giddy, achy romance and go-all-out musical numbers. I happen to think that this picture is a Bollywood gem and shouldn't be missed.

Jasmeet (Katerina Kaif), who prefers to be called Jazz, is a bright and beautiful Indian girl who was born and raised in London and, thus, has picked up westernized sensibilities and a modern attitude. Jazz insists that she is British and scoffs at the idea of marrying a nice Indian boy, even going so far as to sabotage her parents' attempts to introduce her to one. Instead, she hooks up with her British boss, the urbane Charlie Brown (yes, Charlie Brown), who boasts Prince Charles for an acquaintance. Finally, Jazz's partying lifestyle becomes too much for her father and he acts. He convinces his daughter to go along on holiday to India, where he has Jazz run a gauntlet of prospective husbands. But the suitors prove to be hopeless and weird. At this time, enter Arjun.

Arjun (Akshay Kumar) happens to be the son of a friend of Jazz's dad, and Arjun fancies Jazz. Soon, a marriage is arranged, to Jazz's vehement objections. But Jazz tricks Arjun into flying to London on their wedding night. Once in London, she refuses to acknowledge the wedding's legitimacy and proclaims herself a single girl, with the intent of marrying her British boyfriend. Arjun is heartbroken but decides to remain in London until Jazz's wedding to Charlie. In the limited time left him, Arjun hopes to win his wife's heart.

Let me say this, I love this movie. It's breezy and delightfully contemporary.

This is a 'will she marry the guy the parents want and return to India or follow her heart' movie.
Akshay does a good job with the gentle romantic part. Katrina Kaif is very good as the sassy Indian cum London girl.
It also has some good songs -some worth downloading.
Even though it is set both in the UK and India it retains its full Bollywood flavour (unlike some of the less satisfactory attempts to blend the cultures). Enjoyable Bollywood fare.

Unbelievable in every way !
Katrina Kaif, who truly is the Barbie of India, is flying by the seat of her uneniable good looks, but behind this pretty covering lies someone without a great deal of depth as an actress and then some. I have seen some movies she was in that were ok, but this one is not believable in any way. Akshay who I associate with comedic Bollywood movies at his best, is totally out of his element in a supposed romantic story. The music and dancing are bad, I just can't imagine how this film even got the green light to be made. The spoiled English kid , , ugh,. There was a sequence at the beginning in the village where customs , colors, and general conviviality were pleasant, which is why I gave it 2 stars, however I could not even finish this. If you want to see a fantastic romantic comedy, watch "Shudhh Desi Romance", I guarantee it !!!

This is a fabulous movie and I am very pleased with yet another Bollywood hit. The acting is wonderful and the leading man and lady absolutely beautiful together. Great acting from all of the supporting staff and as usual you really can't tell what's going to happen next which is the most refreshing part of Hindustani storytelling.

Would have liked to have seen more dance numbers with traditional Hindi clothing, this movie is a more updated story with more British flavor but not too much, which is a good thing because left unadulterated Hindistani's have a very rich and wonderful culture that comes through into their movie making and I would love to see that remain pure.

Their first film together--'Humko Deewana Kar Gaye' (2006)--was a disappointment, but Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif sparkled in 'Namastey London'--her first major hit and his first of four hits in 2007, including another with Kaif later that year, 'Welcome.' They co-starred in the blockbuster 'Singh is Kinng' the following year. But 'Namastey London' remains their best outing together--and one of Kaif's best films.

In only her fifth Hindi movie, Kaif's still a little green, but her promise starts to show here. She plays Jasmeet, who goes by the nickname "Jazz," a London-born girl with India-born parents. With her mother's encouragement and to her father's dismay, she's thoroughly British--in the way she thinks, dresses, and socializes. The role was likely not a stretch for Kaif, who is half-British herself and was raised in the West.

Actor Rishi Kapoor as Jasmeet's father, Manmohan, nearly steals the show. He's no stern villain who only sees his daughter as a reflection of his own honor. Rather, he's like most dads--caring, concerned, struggling to let go of his adult child, worried she's making the wrong choices (which she is), and completely at a loss about what to do about it. Sick of dragging his drunk daughter out of clubs and horrified that she's engaged to her thrice-divorced boss, Charlie (Clive Standen), Manmohan tricks Jazz into going on a family vacation to India with the intention of marrying her off to an Indian while they're there. He thinks he's doing what's best for her when he betroths her to a rural rube, Arjun (Akshay Kumar).

Back home, Jasmeet's friend Imran (Upen Patel) is disowned by his Pakistani father, Parvez (Javed Sheikh), for moving in with his girlfriend Susan.
