Storyline

Born in America, Marigold was the only child in the Lexton family. Her mom died when she was very young. She took an interest in acting and movies, much to the chagrin of her dad, who refused to do anything with her.

Light, romantic, improbable....typical Bollywood, ha!
14 February 2012 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Marigold (Ali Larter) is a struggling American actress who appears in less-than-stellar films like Fatal Attraction 3. Now, her agent has sent her to India to make a minor film, but when she arrives, the movie crew has shut down production. In addition, her plane ticket was one way only. Not having the funds to return to the States, Marigold accepts an offer from a Bollywood director to appear in a musical, therefore, earning a paycheck. But, alas, Marigold is not the good dancer she needs to be! Another Bollywood star, Prem (Salman Khan) takes her under his wing. Soon, Marigold has "moves", so much so that the beautiful Hindi co-actress gets upset and demands her part be larger. Marigold is stunned, too, when Prem's interest in her, an American, turns ardent. As he explains, his psychic mother once told him he would meet a lovely Marigold, more beautiful than the flower. At first somewhat resistant, due to a boyfriend in the States named Barry, our Marigold falls for Prem, too. But, since he is the son of a Prince and has been promised, since childhood, to wed a gorgeous Hindu lady, will their romance go anywhere? We'll see. This light, romantic and improbable film resembles a typical product of Bollywood, a maker of an abundance of movies. The stars, Larter and Khan, are extremely attractive actors, as is most of the cast. If you like beautiful human beings, here is a film for you. Also wonderful are the scenery and photography, showing an India of incredible loveliness, without a glimpse of poverty. Since the script and direction are acceptable but not especially noteworthy, only fans of light romance will probably enjoy it. You know who you are, right?
