A Bollywood romantic comedy
13 April 2018 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of an American scientist, who is sent to India to market a new type of rice to farmers.

At first, I thought it was a musical as Brie Larson bursts into a song in the first scene. Then, I realised that this is actually a Bollywood film. It has all the entertaining elements of a Bollywood film, including songs and dances. The story is predictable, but it works. I enjoyed it.
