Lily is graduating from her Orange County high school at the top of her class. And she has a plan, "The Lily Plan". She will become a brain surgeon like her father. Her sweet, lost boyfriend Karim will become a petroleum engineer. They'll get married. Have kids. Live happily ever after. But the plan is thrown into confusion when Karim becomes smitten by and runs off with Reshma, the reining Miss India National beauty queen. Not happy about losing at anything, Lily decides that she herself must become the new Miss India National.Written by

Miss(es) its mark.
The film is flawed from the start. Lily is extremely intelligent but doesn't grasp the fact that her boyfriend didn't leave her for Miss India America because of the title, he is shown from the opening scene to not care about accomplishments or titles. This fact on its own renders the rest of the film to be superfluous.
Despite this, I stayed thinking that Lily will explore the depths of her humanity via the constant setups that indicated a strong likelihood of her mother playing a huge role in helping Lily understand the world, but this miss(ed) the mark too. Although the film does eventually draw on her mother, it does so in a rushed and superficial way.
On top of all these disappointments, many of the secondary actors/actresses were atrocious (due in small part to the script).
