This movie follows Hollywood’s typical love story pattern which makes it very predictable. That, combined with songs which seem to be written by amateurs, is why my viewing in the theater will be the last for this film. It isn’t completely absent of entertainment, though, as it jumps on the bandwagon of mocking MC Hammer in a dance scene. Also included is the overly used “older male attempting to fit in the hip hop culture.” I don’t recommend viewing this film or purchasing the soundtrack as the CD will soon become a coaster for the coffee table.
It is interesting to see the major differences in our culture compared to that of India. So much of our lives are driven by financial pride and theirs by cultural pride. Even though it isn’t very fervent, the film shows how much more important love is over money in a marriage. This film is not Dove approved due to the use of a biblical profanity. Don’t worry, though, the MC Hammer joke wasn’t worth the price of the movie ticket.
