[finding that his son messed up the house]
That's it. My children are hooligan. I've done nothing right! Just go to weeds.
Manju R. Sethi:
Oh, no, please, plaease, please, one minute.
He is probably following the example of his sister to see who can humiliate the family more - he with the party or she who ran away to America with some stranger.
Govinda R. Sethi:
Definitely the one who ran away.

All the elements were there, but the editing was flat and scenes tended to play out way past their usefulness.
Thinking it was directed by an Eastern Indian, I excused these things to my companion as, "Well, perhaps they have a different sensibility and sense of timing in Mumbai." But then I learned it was written and directed by Americans and was doubly depressed.
...Line has a great premise and is mostly acted and directed well. Maybe I'm too used to the fast pace of a/a films and TV, but scenes trailed off with no 'button,' some of the time actors looked adrift and the Indian actors ("Jennifer's" relatives in particular) were very melodramatic and over-the-top. All IMO, of course.
All that aside, I teared up at the right moments and for the most part enjoyed the two leads. I'd recommend it, but unfortunately not whole-heartedly.
