Storyline

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.

Goofs

In an early scene, Jazz tells her girlfriend that she's never even been to India; but when the Malhotras visit India and arrive at the villa of old friends, "Bebe" remarks about Jazz: "she was so small when she left." Since Jazz was really young when she left it is quite possible she doesn't remember being in India at all and her parents might have neglected to mention it over the years as they didn't go back.

Good movie
25 November 2009 | by kat_777See all my reviews

Jasmeet aka Jazz is a spoiled girl who in spite being born to an Indian couple considers herself a British. She doesn't consider her selves as an Indian until she was taken to her father's village by her father, Where she meets a man who changed her life forever.

The is overall quiet entertaining. It is also trying convey messages regarding the Indian cultures and values. It shows that celebration means not just to go out and have drinks with your friends. The background score is excellent. Salim-Suliaman did a good job. Songs are okay but not too impressive.

Akshay Kumar did well in his role as the 'Funjabi' boy. Katrina Kaif surprisingly delivered a good performance. She suited her role well. She had the British-Indian look and it is there in speech as well. She did have her moments. The movie actually belonged to Rishi Kapoor with his excellent performance. Others also did well.

Overall the movie is worth a watch. 8/10
