I just saw this movie over the weekend. It was pretty good. My daughter loved it. Just wondering if our Indian friends saw it and what they thought.

I thought the same. It was released here in summer last year, and was an immediate hit. Brilliant piece of movie making; nice feel-good movie.

Did you notice the difference between east and west ..
When the brit's daughther told that she was kissing a girl friend, they became tense and when indian girl told that she was kissing a girl not boy they relaxed.
AW good movie by Chadda. There is one more movie by Chadda... Bhajji on the beach. Its also in english and good too.
I will suggest you to watch "Monsoon Wedding" too. Very real movie. What will you know after attending 20 indian marriage, all is shown in 1 movie.
"Sahab, Biwi Aur Gulam" [Mr., Mrs. and Servent (no its not a sex comedy )] is another one of my favourite but its in Hindi (I guess, for sure, you can get cassette with english sub-titles in US)

Hi Thomas
Indeed it was a good movie. As Ravish said Monsoon wedding is a good movie by the same banner. The songs are superb though are in Punjabi or in Hindi. The movie among various other issuses also shows how marriages happen in India.

Didn't like it. Could be because I just hate football and/or because I saw it at 32000ft over the Atlantic

It was not about football
and/or because I saw it at 32000ft over the Atlantic
Yes, you were flying too high to understand that

I haven't seen it, as I have an aversion to anything with that Wally's name in it. But I saw a clip where one character said to the sport loving girl:-

"All I'm saying is there's a reason why Sporty is the only spice girl who
hasn't got a fella"
That made me laugh outloud.

Not a Man United fan, are you? You will be happy to know that the film has nothing to do with Beckham well, except for the very last bit may be!

my husband is Indian. He absolutely loved it. (So did I).
If you have the DVD there's a short thing about how to make Aloo Gobi, and the director makes it in front of her mother and aunt. It's REAL funny to watch the aunt and mom critique the daughter's cooking. My husband thout it was great to see that old Indian mom's are virtually the same every where in the world.
