I saw the film on i tunes last night because I missed it when it opened in theaters. I wasn't expecting too much and was pleasantly surprised. The film is really funny and sweet, and for someone like me who isn't a big romantic comedy fan, it worked with the genre. The $3.99 on i tunes was well worth it but I wish I had seen it on the big screen because the cinematography is so colorful and beautifully shot. For an indie they got some amazing locations and sets. Overall the film is full of fresh talent, nice music and an unusual story that gives you insight into the Indian culture and I understand now why some Indians who live in the neighborhood get arranged marriages. The lead actress is also stunning, as is most of the cast of newcomers. The last film with an Indian theme that I really liked was Bend it Like Beckham which had Kiera Knightly in her first movie and this feels like another one of those star-birthing films.
