Harry is a New York bachelor cynical about "true love" ever since his parents divorce. Determined to live happily-ever-after, and not end up as another divorce statistic, he asks for help from his match-making uncle. This traditional arranged marriage to a lovely girl from India baffles and surprises his parents and friends. Just as Harry thinks he's found the perfect Indian bride he begins to wonder if his friendship with Theresa, a fun and sexy American, could be something more. Harry and Theresa become closer as she helps him prepare for the big day. The plans are under way and Harry is running out of time to choose between a love that's arranged and one that he's found himself. Written by Cinemavault

Charming Romantic Comedy
6 May 2011 | by nycjane36See all my reviews

This was a sweet charming romantic-comedy and very easy to watch with the family. We saw it in Kew Gardens, and thought that the cinematography, soundtrack and casting were so lively and fresh.

The film deals with the whole cross-cultural marriage issue in a very fun and light-hearted way, and it's quite an easy, breezy watch.

I just bought the soundtrack (Sarah Sharp's voice is amazing and the Indian music was really catchy - isn't it always?)

I'm hoping they release the DVD before Christmas. It's one of those films that actually manages to keep a smile on your face the whole time and a perfect gift for friends who are cross-cultural couples.

My husband and I are planning a trip to India after seeing this movie!
