Storyline

Indian-born Manmohan Malhotra decided to re-locate to London, England, established himself, returned to India, got married to Bebo, and after a period of 4 years got a visa for her so that she could live with him. Shortly thereafter she gave birth to Jasmeet. Manmohan was always embarrassed of Bebo, as she was overly healthy and not quite sophisticated, as a result he always left her at home, while he socialized. Bebo did not want Jasmeet to end up like her, so got her admitted in an English Medium school, encouraged to mingle with Caucasian friends, and as a result Jasmeet was transformed in to Jazz - a stunningly beautiful young woman, British in looks, talk, habits, and heart. Manmohan's plans to get her married to an Indian boy are all in vain. His friend, Parvez Khan, is in a similar situation with his son, Imran, openly romancing a Caucasian blonde, Susan. Manmohan decides to take his family for a tour in India, and ends up getting her married to Arjun Singh. On their return to ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Good Movie!
28 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie. It made me laugh so much. Akshay is kinda getting old for the young hero role but his acting was great! He made me laugh the most. One thing that bugged me during this movie was that Katrina was supposed to be born and raised in England, but she did not have a British accent at all! She spoke English like an American. I am half Indian, born and raised in the USA and i know a British accent when i hear one. I think Katrina usually has an American accent when she speaks English but that doesn't explain why she didn't act in a British accent! But anyways, she was beautiful in this movie and i loved it! GO SEE IT!
