My Bollywood Bride tells the story of Alex, a copy-writer dreaming of being an adventure novelist someday, who meets and romances Indian beauty Reena, while she is vacationing in California. Torn by her blossoming feelings for Alex and her Indian family values and obligations, Reena returns home without saying goodbye. Alex, distraught by the turn of events, decides to follow her to Mumbai and win her back. The trouble is, Alex couldn't be more out of his element on the sub-continent, not helped by the fact Reena has kept something very important about her from him (Reena is the top Bollywood film star - the Julia Roberts of India)! However, with the help of a rambunctious rickshaw driver and some of Reenas friends, Alex just might have a chance at winning her heart. A parallel love story centers on Bobby, an up-and-coming Bollywood star, who has forgotten his roots and started to believe his own press. As a close friend of Reena, he tries to help her by taking Alex under his wing. ... Written by BK

Enjoyed the Movie all the way
16 January 2006 | by (Long Beach) – See all my reviews

I strongly disagree with the other vote. A person goes into a movie like this knowing that they are about to see an easy going romantic comedy. And it was just that. The whole movie I was entertained and I thought the acting was very good. There was problems with the sound i noticed, but i actually took the time to ask Brad Listermann, the producer, after the movie about the sound. Listermann told me that they were still finishing up the sound and they knew there would be problems at the showing in Palm Springs. So I'm sure when they get done with the sound you wont be able to notice any blemishes.

Overall i would for sure say this is a movie that shows culture from India very well and is a movie that a person of any age can enjoy.
