Storyline

While struggling to impress new hotelier client Kit Hawksin, Granger Woodruff of the ad agency Stimulus is told by Jennifer David of the CityOne Bank call center that his identity has been compromised and his credit card is being misused. While tracing transactions, both become friendly and agree to meet in San Francisco at the Hawksin Hotel. When she apparently does not show up, Granger befriends an East Indian woman, Priya Sethi, who has flown in to attend a relative's birthday party. Granger will get a rude awakening when he finds out that Priya is actually Jennifer, additionally the fiancée of wealthy Mumbai-based Vikram Bhatia. Since Priya has traveled to America without her family's consent, Granger will also incur her family's wrath, three of whom have felt compelled to travel there to locate Priya then escort her back home to marry Vikram.

mis-marketed
8 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie should have been marketed as an inter-continental "Pillow Talk." Jesse Metcalf has a Rock Hudson, William Holden quality that you did not see on "Desperate Housewives." Shriya is a cute actress with a very expressive face and good comedian.

Her parents were funny. This movie also "samples" others like the "Risky Business" homage.

A pleasant and delightful movie for those who like their movies to begin " Once upon a time . . ." and end with " . . . happily ever after." The scenes in Mumbai were interesting and I wish there had been more. Seeing the call center personnel training to be more American was a hoot.

The ending was ala "An officer and A Gentleman." Not only would I recommend, but I will watch again.

This movie deserves better. And so do the actors. Watch out for Jesse Metcalf. He could be the George Clooney of his generation. I'd like to see him do a wide range of movie types.
