When Scottish boy Jay saves Indian girl Geena's life, sparks fly. At first they keep their relationship a secret, but soon the cross cultural romance comes under the eyes of their disapproving families. Modern London, colorful Bollywood, and '60s R&B flavors blend in this tale of forbidden love. Written by
The British filmmaker blended Bollywood with the Western film world to make a sweet story of a nice Indian girl living in London. Her family, of course, wants her to marry a nice Indian boy and carry on the family traditions, but she meets and falls instantly in love with Jay, a nice boy that is definitely NOT Indian. The songs (of which there are many) are delivered in the Bollywood style of breaking into song at any moment (even more so than in American Musicals). All songs are in Hindi, even though the main character states in the film that she cannot speak Hindi. The music is so obviously fantasy in the movie that it seems okay, though. This was a lot of fun, and an enjoyable story.
