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.

Nice Romantic Story of Going After A Dream Of Real Love
1 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Movie was very pleasant to watch and I enjoyed the movie and its story line. Some may call it simple because it won't have you on the edge of your seat with drama but it is nice movie that shows that simple love is better than all the wild life that is out there. Someone else commented that her family is a little over done but if you watch Bolywood movies you know that the humor is funny in its own way even when exaggerated. Plot line is nice and I like the ending and the fact that she never bows to sleeping with him before marriage. After all his past ways and choices have not produced real happiness and her class far excels anything he had before and he realizes this. There is enough slut junk out there to watch, it was nice to have a quality story line. I did not think the bachelor party part or the comments on strippers by Granger gave him much class but he later redeems himself by chasing after the good that is in Priya and realizing that all his former girlfriend has to offer (self gratification) is not as valuable as someone you love (Priya). A good movie that I enjoyed.
