Storyline

During the British rule in India, several Indians were lured by the British to travel to distant Mauritius where they would have a better life. Upon reaching this island, the Indians were enslaved, tortured and made to labor in what is now known as the "Coolie Ghat". After the British left India, the Indians in Mauritius decided to continue to live there along with other nationals from different countries. Amongst the Indian family was the Sinha family, consisting of Shekhar, his wife Sandhya and son, Jai. Jai attends culinary classes where he meets with beautiful Swede, Sophie Besson, and after a few misunderstandings both fall in love with each other. Sophie introduces Jai to her parents, Norman and Claire. Norman who used to one of the slave-masters in the olden days, considers Indians quite inferior, does not approve of Jai, and would like Sophie to marry Gordon. On the other hand, Sandhya gets a shock when she finds out that her son wants to marry a Roman Catholic, and does not ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Easy Romeo and Juliet Story !

Overall it's a nice movie, but without much to call great or special. And according to the old movies of the big B once; it's disappointing. Well.. colorful but disappointing.

This was the first movie ever for both the young leads (Karan Sharma & Annabelle Wallace). And the 2 newcomers were charismatic, talented and having chemistry. The girl in particular captured my heart with her beauty, smile and short dress like for instance when she paused for a second in front of her mirror to fix herself before opining the door for her lover, DAMN! She was perfect, so what the hell she was fixing ?!

It managed to deliver sweet image but not sweet drama. Studying the stories behind the dishes or using the historical conflict to complicate the love story were the only unusual points. Because the rest of the movie was so usual, lacking the surprises, giving *unforgettable* solution for the whole matter at the end (too-old-it's-unused, or too-easy-it's-laughable !).

The idiot attempt to assure that Amitabh Bachchan is shorter than (Karan Sharma) bothered me very, since we all know that if there was any taller actor than Bachchan then he'll have no chance to work in the Indian cinema or any other cinema being too tall to be captured on a camera !

I read that in 2005 Bachchan was admitted to a hospital, to undergo surgery for diverticulitis of the small intestine. That nearly explains the condition of him here, appearing so weary for all the time.

Bachchan plays rich, so rich, person. This might give you the feeling that since he, Bachchan, became a rich man in real life, so he's playing himself in the movies away from his common roles during all the 1970s and the 1980s! Actually, while I know that there is no actor plays just one role, that seems partly true since he became somewhat away from poor people in the first place, living another higher class. But here, it was clear from the very start that it is a smooth story and movie to tranquilize. So there was originally no place for anything but colored houses, stylish costumes, expensive cars..etc.

There was no amnesia, no lost-and-found child, and no Amrish Puri to be killed by the hands of Bachchan in the end. And avoiding also songs with 200 dancers, forced comedy or action (Dil Jo Bhi Kahey) wanted to be a different experience as simple romance. However this no-customary work has been made customarily in itself. Surely it's less noisy compared to the classic Indian movies, yet less amusing compared to them or else; being too simple, TV-ish and poor.

This is how (Romeo and Juliet) transforms into suave postcards or bed time story. Let's say it is the tamest Romeo and Juliet I've ever seen !
