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.

It makes you feel good about your country. Endorses the family values which are fast disappearing in todays world. Reaffirms that if you love selflessly, without expecting any returns, you truly get what you set out to achieve. Brilliant performance by Akshay. He is very restrained yet very strong and emotive. The part where the Englishman from the erstwhile East India company rants about India being a nation of snake charmers and the answer that Akshay politely gives him would gladden any person's heart. 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. Watch it with your better half. It'll make you both fell good about yourself.
