Sarita, the probabilty of you getting on a motorcycle is the same probability of Shiva having a penis.
Shiva does have a penis. Shiva's a man.
No he's not. Everyone knows all Hindu Gods are genderless.
Sarita (calling up her mother):
Hi Mom. Shiva's a man, right?...And that would imply that He has a penis, right?...(To Mitch) Yes!

exaggerated pseudo-"indian" rituals, bad music, language. the lead role, played by the director, is very unattractive and poorly acted. long shots focussing on her hair flying as she rides a mobike in a leather jacket to sad indian elevator music doesn't help.
madhur jaffrey plays the mother, which she does well enough, but this is hardly a film to follow her much applauded acting in, say, various merchant-ivory productions. her daughter sakina plays a pretty elder sister to the lead.
there are a few amusing lines, but i wouldn't bother to see this film, and we had to buy tickets to the coen brothers' "o brother where art thou" to make up for this disappointment.
oh yes, i forgot the plot. doesn't matter, you'll forget it too.
