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

Love marriage vs Arranged marriage
5 October 2013 | by (Somewhere in the Cosmos) – See all my reviews

This was a hybrid movie, a very rare kind, more like a cultural crash where east meets west. The movie was all about a young Indian student Harish alias Harry who lives in the United States. When his parents' love marriage broke Harry decides to get marry arranged by his parents and relative like Indian culture. It is a long process, while everything going right direction an American girl fall for him from the very beginning which tumbles his heart. He tries his best to not to fall back to her and what happen next is the rest of the story.

The movie was colourful. Music was very good and some tunes were catchy. All in all it was completely a fun movie and sad that many people won't get it. You no need to familiar with both the cultures to understand. The movie was a fun debate between 'love marriage' and 'arranged marriage'. And what wins at the end is to know you should see the movie.

Everyone looked awesome in their own way. I thought another Keira Knightley (debuted in 'Bend it like Beckham') is on making after seeing a character played by Theresa. Harry was good like a typical Indian character and so his parents and uncle as well cute Nita. A simple entertainment about cross- culture, good to be watched at once.

7/10
