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.

Goofs

Granger comes to India hunting for Priya at "CityOne Bank Headquarters." Normally all the foreign companies use third party Indian companies to house their call centers. The local people identify these companies by the name of the Indian Business entity, not the client company; hence, no Indian locals would known where the "CityOne Bank Headquarter" would be when Granger asks for directions to Priya's workplace.

Quotes

Zia: You know you're crazy, right?
Priya R. Sethi: Hm.
Zia: What if this guy turns out to be from a bad family and kidnaps you and makes you clean their toilets and, like, clean their dirty cats and all?
Priya R. Sethi: Then he's in real trouble. I'm not a good cleaner.

I wanted to like this movie more!
6 November 2008 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

All the elements were there, but the editing was flat and scenes tended to play out way past their usefulness.

Thinking it was directed by an Eastern Indian, I excused these things to my companion as, "Well, perhaps they have a different sensibility and sense of timing in Mumbai." But then I learned it was written and directed by Americans and was doubly depressed.

...Line has a great premise and is mostly acted and directed well. Maybe I'm too used to the fast pace of a/a films and TV, but scenes trailed off with no 'button,' some of the time actors looked adrift and the Indian actors ("Jennifer's" relatives in particular) were very melodramatic and over-the-top. All IMO, of course.

All that aside, I teared up at the right moments and for the most part enjoyed the two leads. I'd recommend it, but unfortunately not whole-heartedly.
