Kit Hawksin: Excuse me. Did you say you're looking for a young Indian girl?
Manju R. Sethi: Yes! Yes-yes. Yes.
Kit Hawksin: I think I know the girl. I should. I gave her a hotel room last night. Pretty girl. No, I'm saying, good-looking kid. Wait a minute. Is this about me paying for it? 'Cause, I'll be honest with you, I do it all the time.

8 December 2009 | by Jedser1See all my reviews

This movie should have been marketed as an inter-continental "Pillow Talk." Jesse Metcalf has a Rock Hudson, William Holden quality that you did not see on "Desperate Housewives." Shriya is a cute actress with a very expressive face and good comedian.

Her parents were funny. This movie also "samples" others like the "Risky Business" homage.

A pleasant and delightful movie for those who like their movies to begin " Once upon a time . . ." and end with " . . . happily ever after." The scenes in Mumbai were interesting and I wish there had been more. Seeing the call center personnel training to be more American was a hoot.

The ending was ala "An officer and A Gentleman." Not only would I recommend, but I will watch again.

This movie deserves better. And so do the actors. Watch out for Jesse Metcalf. He could be the George Clooney of his generation. I'd like to see him do a wide range of movie types.
