Storyline

Born and raised by her grandparents in Connecticut, Samantha Hartley (Kelli Garner) travels to Rajasthan, India, where her parents, Sara (Lynn Collins) and Jeremy (Justin Theroux) had their honey-moon during the year 1983. At Rajapur Railway Station she is met by Amar (Bhanu Goswami), who takes her to the Desert Hotel, even though she had planned to stay at Niwas Palace. When she insists, he takes her there, and she meets Vikram Singh Rathore (Yusuf Hussain) and his sullen cousin, Jai Singh (Manoj Bajpai), the owner, who makes it clear that she cannot reside there. She looks around, meets Jai's niece, Shefali (Rita Joshi), and is mistaken for a Grants and Proposal Student, Doyle. She decides to assume this name, is allocated a room, and sets about to investigate why her grandmother not only blamed but also filed a lawsuit against Jai for the death of her son.

A timeless love story, set in a majestic desert
8 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought the film was extremely well done. The cinematography is exceptional as well as the acting which evokes real emotions from the audience. The soundtrack is well connected to the overall themes of the film and plays as a great addition to its presentation. I look forward to Nanada Anands next project which I am sure will be just as inspirational as this one. If your in the mood for both a cultural and romantic experience, I highly recommend seeing this film. I feel that the high quality of its production is comparable to films such as The English Patient, and Monsoon Wedding. I hope to see Jai Singh, whom plays the main protagonists in more mainstream films, his delivery was superb.
