Storyline

While struggling to impress new hotelier client Kit Hawksin, Granger Woodruff of the ad agency Stimulus is told by Jennifer David of the CityOne Bank call center that his identity has been compromised and his credit card is being misused. While tracing transactions, both become friendly and agree to meet in San Francisco at the Hawksin Hotel. When she apparently does not show up, Granger befriends an Indian girl, Priya Sethi, who has flown in to attend a relative's birthday party. Granger will get a rude awakening when he finds out that Priya is actually Jennifer, additionally the fiancée of wealthy Mumbai-based Vikram Bhatia. Since Priya has traveled to America without her family's consent, Granger will also incur her family's wrath, three of whom have felt compelled to travel there to locate Priya then escort her back home to marry Vikram.

Fresh movie with awesome moments
13 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

I won't think twice about rating this movie 8/10 mainly because: 1.) It's like a fresh breeze amongst all the stupid Indian movies that come out these days (barring masterpieces like A Wednesday, Shaurya, etc.) 2.) It's an unbelievable idea yet you can easily see it happening in real life. 3.) Even though it is a movie, one can relate to many moments in the movie. I liked many!

Shreya Saran acted very well even though I had never even heard of her name. She is pretty and did her part really well (even the fake accent was decent). Tara Sharma didn't have much to do, but she filled in OK. Anupam Kher was also funny yet did not turn into an idiot as many such roles do. I have no clue why this movie is rated so low. I just hope that haters stay away from this movie. I will highly recommend that you watch this at least once and I'm sure you'll love this one!!
