Storyline

Housefather Richard Andrews's latest attempt to set straight his marriage with bitching Michelle takes his family to India, to attend a week-long semi-traditional wedding. College daughter Kelli Andrews must get over her family frustration, and fate to study law while she wants to dance, to start appreciating the exotic splendor of Bombay. Rehearsals for the Bollywood style dances, notably at the sangeet, bring her and friends in contact with the charming crew dancing instructors from the countryside, Aseem Kapoor and DJ Basu, who take them along to the nightclub where they pursue a musical dream. Conflicting expectations, debts, cupid's arrows and so one complicate life for all, but the end of the week approaches, requiring outcomes before the Americans return to L.A. Written by KGF Vissers

I only watched it for the music and the dancing
25 April 2018 | by CeeBee86See all my reviews

I have a thing for dance movies. Probably because I am a huge fail at dancing myself. Those type of movies just make me happy. Even if they are bad.

This movie was fine, but great? Nah. The acting wasn't that great, the storyline one huge cliche and predictable, the characters are far from original and the ending is easy to guess. It also reminded me a lot of times of the first Step up movie. Some scenes were almost a copy of that one.

But, the music and the dancing in this movie is just great. Like always. Just watch it for that. Don't expect to be blown away. Just, sit back, relax and watch for the music and the dance.
