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.

nice refreshing movie
30 April 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I really liked the movie and i'am not sure as to why it is rated sooo low, the chemistry between jesse metcalfe and shreya is great in the movie,their conversations on the phone are nicely shot,i also like the scene where jesse walks towards her in the hotel and does not recognize her.jesse looks more mature and even more attractive in this movie.he fits in the role just right. anupam kher is really funny and has done a good job,except for few scenes like the way mumbai is shown looks like as if its picked up from some documentary, and the last kissing scene would have been better without all those call center employees watching them doing that.but it gives a nice refreshing feeling after watching the movie. so go see it.
