Vidhu Vinod Chopra's second attempt at a Hollywood project. First was when the script of Munnabhai M.B.B.S was picked up by a leading studio who wanted to remake the film with Chris Tucker in the titular character. The project fell through though. See more »
This is that kind of movie that maybe it wasn't for cinema. I mean, for a T.V. movie is OK; it has a story that tries to involve you in the "family values"'s sort of way, but it doesn't really grab your attention at its fullest.
The main problem is that the beginning has a poor rhythm, you don't quite connect with the characters nor the story and as it goes on doesn't change much... you are there waiting and waiting, and almost a half an hour later you start to pay attention to it, only to figure it out what it is gonna happen next, almost immediately. So it lacks of emotion and development, it has no complexity whatsoever and also the performances are "average", except for Marquette, maybe the striking point.
Also it has a nice cinematography and i quite like it the place where was filmed (if you're a fan of the landscapes); but that is all.
So, you CAN watch it, but don't expect much.
