a charming must see
21 March 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews



This movie combines bollywood and the overheated romantic advice found in Cosmopolitan Magazine.

Take those ingredients and stir in the questions an immigrant might have after being thrust into the dating scene in a new culture after many years of marriage and a grown daughter.

The result is the most delightful movie I saw at the South by Southwest Film Festival.

We were told scenes are being added to lengthen the one hour narrative and bring this charmer to the big screen.

The writer of Monsoon Wedding offers another romantic story and you don't want to miss it.
