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.

Fresh movie with awesome moments
13 April 2009 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I won't think twice about rating this movie 8/10 mainly because: 1.) It's like a fresh breeze amongst all the stupid Indian movies that come out these days (barring masterpieces like A Wednesday, Shaurya, etc.) 2.) It's an unbelievable idea yet you can easily see it happening in real life. 3.) Even though it is a movie, one can relate to many moments in the movie. I liked many!

Shreya Saran acted very well even though I had never even heard of her name. She is pretty and did her part really well (even the fake accent was decent). Tara Sharma didn't have much to do, but she filled in OK. Anupam Kher was also funny yet did not turn into an idiot as many such roles do. I have no clue why this movie is rated so low. I just hope that haters stay away from this movie. I will highly recommend that you watch this at least once and I'm sure you'll love this one!!
