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

Light Romantic Comedy
27 April 2011 | by (NJ,USA) – See all my reviews

It's a great movie for teens, young adults and anyone young at heart who wants to see a fun romantic comedy. This movie is wonderful because it gives a chance to new comers and allows them to show their talent on the big screen. Now a days, movies on the big screen use the same actors and actresses until we are all tired of watching them. This is a fresh movie which is written by new comers, directed by a new comer and acted by new comers. It shows that a dream with hard work and persistence can come true. I applaud all the people involved in making this movie. It is another example of how this country is great and anyone can make their dreams come true. Go see it.
