Storyline

Vijay Chatterjee was born in British India, and his dad was a freedom fighter. Unable to handle the riots between Hindus and Muslims in the late 40s, the Chatterjees first immigrated to Britain, and then to Toronto, Canada, where they enjoyed considerable bliss in the company of other Canadians from Bangla Deshis, Pakistanis and Sri Lankans, and opened a restaurant. Shortly thereafter, the restaurant was attacked and pelted with stones by White Supremacists amidst cries of 'Pakis go back home'. An unsettled Vijay, who was now married to Sangeeta, and had a son named Ashish, re-located to Montreal, where he opened a Restaurant named 'Delhi'. After Sangeeta passed away, Vijay meets with a beautiful young florist named Maarya, and convinces her to first starting working as a Cook in his restaurant and then to get married to Ashish, which she does. Although Islamic, both Vijay and Ashish are initially fascinated by her. Things do not go as planned when Maarya finds out that Ashish is ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

What a crazy ride
13 May 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I think I loved this movie.I say I think because I am not sure I loved all of it...but maybe I did.It was so crazy with so many surprising and twisting turns to the story I felt like I was on a roller-coaster ride.The line of what was moving and dramatic and what was funny and perverse were so mixed.I did not know whether to laugh or squeal with discomfort. Having said all that...I think I love this movie,the premise is an arranged marriage between a gay son and a girl with an incredibly complicated background.The relationships between all the main 5 characters are eruptive and exciting to watch unfold.The actors are all great,especially Mohan Agashe as the doting father.Ryan Hollyman is hot and sexy as the heartfelt male love interest.Nadana Sen is also a pleasure to watch on screen. Overall it is a crazy ride and I think I loved it
