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)

A MUST SEE!!!!
28 April 2003 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

Note: The above recommendation refers only to people trying not to start counting hairs on their head for entertainment.

Kehta Hai Dil Baar Baar (KHDBB), another creative title from Bollywood also follows in the great tradition of copying Hollywood movies. In this case it is Meet the Parents which was a big hit in the United States. To their credit they at least picked a good movie to rip off.

The story goes like this. Sundar is a certified doctor who instead of curing people of diseases and such things, wants to attack diseases at their source: FOOD! Yes food. So he becomes a 'bawarchi' (chef) and sells healthy (!) Indian food on the streets of New York City. One day he spots Ritu Patel (Kim Sharma) who is also a doctor. The typical love story ensues after which we find out that Ritu has a very protective papa, Roger Patel (Paresh Rawal) who will only let her get married to a '3 P wala' : a Professional Patel owning Property.

Unfortunately for Sundar, he is a punjabi cum south Indian, who cooks for a living and lives in his 'India on Wheels' truck. He just does not fit into Roger's mold. And so follows the tug of war between Roger and Sundar. Things get crazier before ending, Bollywood ishtyle.

Although the story is a good one, the rest of the film is not upto the mark. Instead of being filled with jokes, the screenplay turns out to be a big joke itself. The lines are overused and simply not funny. Acting is also below par. I actually liked Jimmy Shergill in Mohabbatein. I thought he had some promise, but as Sundar he is below average. Kim Sharma is also below par but I didn't expect much from her so it wasn't a great disappointment. Paresh Rawal is one of my favorite actors. He usually brings his everything and manages to save even the worst of films (case in point: Awaara Paagal Deewana). But as 'The Roger Patel' he is also disappointing. I couldn't blame him too much though, he didn't have much to work with. Music is also below average. Some songs are hummable but have no long term potential.

So as I've said before, you don't want to watch this movie unless you have absolutely nothing else to do, taking into consideration that admiring your nails is something.
