The movie has many positives: production values, lead actors, progression of the main relationship. However, there are disappointments that are hard to overlook. One is that the arranged marriage which is so hated by one protagonist is shown to work out when given enough time. Yes, this can happen, and it’s lucky for the pair when that’s the case. But in this day and age, this is not a good enough model to provide to an audience— it’s backward looking, not funny. Another let down is that once again a woman with promise must make do with a less educated, downtrodden sad sack and be thankful for it. That makes two strikes...

“Three things in this world bring tears to my eyes: Papa's shoe, English exams, and singer Kumar Sanu's voice. All painful.” So begins this often hilarious Indian mismatched couple rom-com, which doesn’t have many Bollywood clichés. At least one of the couple hates the other at first (“When Harry Met Sally” but they’re already married!) but there is that eventual turn-around in their relationship. How it happens is unexpected and pretty fun (after a very low – and almost tragic – point). Skip the special features unless you speak Hindi; they’re in a mix of Hindi and English but have no subtitles for the Hindi parts.

Fascinating film for this American - admittedly unfamiliar with India's historical family/marriage culture, so I likely couldn't really 'get' it all...

The street scenes, etc. were a great glimpse into urban India.

The end dance scene (I'm big on Bollywood dance) was particularly good - great costumes, choreography/moves - everything!
