Storyline

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

fabulous film
19 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw "My Bollywood Bride" this past weekend at the Palm Springs Film Festival. I just found out it won "Best of the Fest". What a fun film this is and what a great new introduction to Kashmira, the gorgeous ingénue. She's a accomplished actress in India's Bollywood. She's beyond beautiful. The story is a light-hearted love story and reflects the principles of Indian family life - what's allowed, what isn't. It's interesting. All the characters are a riot. My friends and I are calling each other "Shaker G". Once you see the film you'll know what that means. You should definitely check out the film - the music, the costumes, the exposure to the Indian & Bollywood culture, and the story itself are all captivating. It's a great ride, regardless of age - make sure to check it out!
