Storyline

In India, a young woman is kidnapped, her young male companion beaten within an inch of his life. He is working class Sikh, Surinder Singh, she his wife, the former Davinder Samra, a Sikh-Canadian who he met when she visited India a year earlier for her cousin's wedding. For both, it was love at first sight. However, Davinder comes from a traditional Sikh family, who made their fortune in Canada. Her parents, who knew nothing of Surinder when Surinder and Davinder eloped, were seeking a suitable husband for her. As the story unfolds leading to the kidnapping/beating and the subsequent investigation by the local police and Crime Investigation Division, the power of money and of Sikh family honor is shown.

excellent movie - IMDb actual rating is 7 (mean) and 8 (median)
21 March 2011 | by (London, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Based on a true story, this movie starts out with a violent beating and kidnapping on a dark road in India, then goes back in time to tell the tale of how this young couple met in Canada and her struggle against her strict Sikh upbringing there, their plan to escape her family and her arranged marriage in India, and the Indian police investigation that followed.

This genuine Romeo and Juliet story is riveting from start to finish and I can't recommend it strongly enough.

* Please note that according to the IMDb's own numbers this movie actually received 7 stars by the mean average or 8 stars by the median, not the 3.5 stars they are displaying. The IMDb claims this is because they use a "secret weighted system" to rate movies that prevents "ballot stuffing". To date 51 people, including myself, have rated this movie in the six years since its release -- how that could possible be construed as ballot stuffing makes me question the entire IMDb rating system.
