Mary Jane wants a boyfriend in her life also and is desperately looking for one but she always falls for the wrong guys. Written by Hassan Zee

Fun, functional, fantastic movie!
12 January 2011 | by (San Jose, CA) – See all my reviews

Bicycle Bride is a combination of traditional-modern, fun-serious, nice-naughty (but still PG), colorful-gray scale!!! Nice polish by writer-director-producer Hassan Zee--illuminating his zest for life, his verve to create, and his endless reservoirs of energy! Great job by cast and crew!!! The flavor of East is portrayed very well even though the movie is set in the West, and is conveniently represented in the English language. Night of Henna was Hassan's first film--and it was a superb delight in cinematography, and yet Bicycle Bride is no less of a visual confection. Bicycle Bride indeed enhances the theme that is Hassan Zee's passion--one of showing how unity can be achieved. Unity is indeed Hassan's Mantra--peaceful unity of East and West, Traditional and Present day. He attempts successfully to fight ignorance and superstition with wisdom and compassion. Love has to win over Hate. Cross-cultural bounds have to be broken. The Bride must arrive on the eastern bicycle tradition, but not to be Man's chattel, but to win the marathons of the world!
