first 15 minutes hilarious, after that.. its all downhill ...
Kal Penn is hilarious, the first 15 minutes they show his little predicament and his acting and comedic presence is awesome, but after that the story is about Sunil Malhotra, hes that lacky from 'American desi' and his acting is horrible, the storyline is also very formula and unexciting, lisa rey is hot, but her beauty is ruined by the cliché lines she has to say ... its all very predictable, i can say as an ABCD ... but kal penn ... his 15 minutes.. great ... cant wait for 'Namesake' ... a good lisa rey movie would be 'Bollywood Hollywood' thats isn't formula, thats a good indo-American movie about the pressures of arranged marriage... rent that...
