Trivia

The film was first shot in 2013, but not enough scenes to make into a film were made because final stages of the production coincided with monsoon season, forcing the filmmakers to raise more money and do a reshoot, which took place in 2015. See more »

Fun romantic comedy
6 June 2018 | by lonetromboneSee all my reviews

This is a fun romantic comedy/musical. The negative reviews insist the film is average (false), boring (false), poorly directed (false), the worst movie ever (not even close), not a rom-com (false), only mimics Bollywood (fair enough), and inaccurately portrays India (what do you expect from Hollywood?). You can let these hateful people suck the joy out of your life - or you can enjoy the movie.
