Indian-born Manmohan Malhotra decided to re-locate to London, England, established himself, returned to India, got married to Bebo, and after a period of 4 years got a visa for her so that she could live with him. Shortly thereafter she gave birth to Jasmeet. Manmohan was always embarrassed of Bebo, as she was overly healthy and not quite sophisticated, as a result he always left her at home, while he socialized. Bebo did not want Jasmeet to end up like her, so got her admitted in an English Medium school, encouraged to mingle with Caucasian friends, and as a result Jasmeet was transformed in to Jazz - a stunningly beautiful young woman, British in looks, talk, habits, and heart. Manmohan's plans to get her married to an Indian boy are all in vain. His friend, Parvez Khan, is in a similar situation with his son, Imran, openly romancing a Caucasian blonde, Susan. Manmohan decides to take his family for a tour in India, and ends up getting her married to Arjun Singh. On their return to ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Excellent cool movie, a must watch...
28 March 2007 | by muhammadusamaSee all my reviews

It Endorses the family values which are fast disappearing in todays world. Reaffirms that if you love or work sincerely, without expecting any returns, you may truly get what you set out to achieve. Brilliant performance by Akshay. He is very restrained yet very strong and emotive. Katarina looks ravishing and communicates very well with her eyes. Her Hindi has also improved tremendously. Rishi Kapoor brings in a whiff of fresh air from his yesteryear's. Javed Shaikh of Pakistan also played good role. It'll make you both feel good about yourself. If you like light well paced romantic movies, this is excellent movie. If you like light well paced romantic movies, this is excellent movie.
