Storyline

Struggling to convince his new hotelier client, Kit Hawksin, Granger Woodruff is told by one Jennifer David 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. She does not show up, and Woodruff befriends an East Indian woman, Priya Sethi, who has come to attend a relative's marriage. Woodruff will get a rude awakening when he finds out that Priya is actually Jennifer - who is the fiancé of wealthy Mumbai-based Vikram Bhatia - and has traveled there without informing her family. He will also incur her dad's (Rajeev) wrath, who has been compelled to travel there, along with his wife, Manju, to first locate, and then escort Priya back home to get her married to Vikram.

Trivia

The movie is the first combination between the Indian powerhouse production house, Adlabs with their American counterpart MGM. The film was co-produced by the Indian-American producer Ashok Amritraj and Patrick Aiello. See more »

Goofs

It is shown in the movie that Priya suddenly decides to take off for USA and the very next day she's in the US. The same happens with Granger, as he suddenly walks out of his friend's wedding and takes off for India. Both scenarios are impossible as it takes quiet a long time (weeks) for Indians to get a US tourist visa approved after a long process and for American visitors to get an Indian Visa approved. None of the two countries have got "visa-on-arrival" or "visa free entry" treaty for citizens of their counterpart country. See more »

A pretty decent romantic comedy
28 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

I really can't figure out why people have rated this movie so low, at least as yet. I won't say that the movie was exceptionally good in acting or directing or screenplay or whatever. But, on a whole, the movie did quite well in doing what it was meant for. Its a simple romantic comedy with a dream romance between an Indian girl and an American guy and it scored pretty well there. Some of the moments with Anupam Kher were really very very hilarious. Though, I would say that at some points the movie lifted up from reality and went into the ideal state. But, then again, romantic movies are usually like that only.I liked the movie to give it a decent 7/10. I'd suggest that you go and watch the movie, it'll be a real fun to watch!!!
