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.

12 March 2003 | by (amsterdam, holland) – See all my reviews

if you have seen the movie MEET THE PARENTS. then you practically know the whole story of the movie.

paresh rawal, the father was in some scens funny. but sometimes he overacted. and his sentence CUS I'M THE ROGER PATEL made me sick.

some pieces in the movie were different than meet the parents en some were even funier.

the songs in this movie were nice.

this movie on the whole is worth seeing but for only one time. not unlik meet the parents which i've seen a couple times.

i would give this movie a 5.5. it is a standard bollywood lovestory.

and if you knwo the end of meet the parents. you know what always happens in the bollywood lovestories
