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

If you are looking for a nice romantic movie on dance, you are at the right place. I have seen a lot of movies on romance with dance and music but this one is definitely in my TOP 3.

I can't remerber how I found it, but after watching the movie, I was surprised I had not hear anything about it before.

There is nothing revolutionary in the scenario, but I am pretty sure you will love the ride. The pictures, the colors and the choreographies are nice, but most of ALL, this SWEET chemistry between the two main leads. The way he looks at her, damn...I'm going to watch this movie again lool. Take some popcorn or a nice cup of tea and just give yourself permission to watch this nice romance.
