Storyline

Harry is a New York bachelor cynical about "true love" ever since his parents divorce. Determined to live happily-ever-after, and not end up as another divorce statistic, he asks for help from his match-making uncle. This traditional arranged marriage to a lovely girl from India baffles and surprises his parents and friends. Just as Harry thinks he's found the perfect Indian bride he begins to wonder if his friendship with Theresa, a fun and sexy American, could be something more. Harry and Theresa become closer as she helps him prepare for the big day. The plans are under way and Harry is running out of time to choose between a love that's arranged and one that he's found himself. Written by Cinemavault

Sweet cross-cultural romantic movie
24 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Finally get to watch the movie that I have been waiting for. It is pleasant and beautiful.

It is not your typical romantic movie. It is an experience and an adventure that takes you to explore the beautiful people, colorful culture and the amazing country of India.

For those who have not watch the movie, watch the trailer and get the movie. Do not take the rating as an discouragement, because you will enjoy this movie.

Thanks Nayan and 108 Production for the amazing movie, and I look forward to the next movie.
