Storyline

Ranshod Rai Patel is an egotistical and arrogant self-made Gujarati man who arrived from India and settled in the New York area years ago. He started his career cleaning latrines and dirty clothes, then moved on to working in a restaurant, saving enough money to own one, and then finally owned twelve. He became an extremely successful real-estate magnate, à la Donald Trump and was so big-headed that started calling himself THE Roger Patel. He got married to a woman named Kamla and they were soon proud parents of two lovely daughters, Namrata and Ritu. When the girls are grown, the overprotective Roger arranges a marriage for Namrata with a property owner, a professional Patel man named Prem. Ritu, a doctor, informs that she has met her soul mate also, Sunder Kapoor, who is part-Punjabi and part-Madrasi and is definitely not a Patel, nor a property owner, and not even a professional. But since Ritu likes him so much, he invites Sunder to spend seven days with his family in his palatial... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Good clean and fun film!
1 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the film that first got me hooked on foreign-made movies. I rented it on a lark and thoroughly enjoyed it -- the overblown production numbers, the lively music, the humor, the colorful direction, the slice of Indian culture (however thin), even the subtitles. And except for one minor bit of what might be considered toilet humor, it's squeaky clean. Maybe that's part of the problem with some of those who didn't like the movie and have come to expect at least some sexuality or provocative scenes in every film.

Unfortunately, even Bollywood is beginning to move into some R-rated fare instead of films like this that are closer to PG. But for those who want good, clean entertainment and don't mind subtitles and lavish musical numbers, this film makes for a good choice.
