This is somewhat of a typical multi-cultural romance movie. An American guy meets an Indian girl in LA who claims to be on vacation. They develop feelings for each other while spending time together but then she disappears back to India because her dad has a heart attack. The guy decides to follow her and upon arriving, he finds out she is a very famous movie star and is engaged to a very famous director who appears to be a dangerous guy because he wields so much power. The guy ends up being hosted by the girl's friend who is also a movie star. Most of the rest of the movie then deals with the difficulties people have in experiencing satisfying romantic relationships when arranged marriages and social differences are present. In the, things end up positively for the couples involved through some fairly typical plot twists. In general, there's nothing terribly original here, but the movie is fairly well done for a Hollywood-Bollywood crossover type movie. The actor who plays the American character has a bit of a Clint Eastwood style to his work, but for me he was a little off for this particular role. Other than that, the rest of the characters are fairly interesting. If you like romantic movies with a multi-cultural flair, this one is worth checking out.
