The movie stars Ashutoh Gowariker as Vikram, a high school graduate come to America for a good college education. As soon as he steps foot in America, his Visa is shortend from 6 months to one. Putting that aside, he scouts out for his sponors home. Finding that they had left, and were not returning in the near future, he is forced to fend for himself in Downtown San Franciso. He soon finds a job, and a friend, Sue, a bohemian girl who is not as easy to be friends with as he hoped, and the time on his visa is running out. The movie is set as a romantic comedy, when it would be more towards a drama. Yes, tehre are funny parts, but alot of it is serious. Overall, Rathod does a good job in showing us the toils of coming to America. The music complementst the movie, a perfect soundtrack done by Sheila Chandra and Jai Uttal. I would recomend seeing this, it is worth the price. Final note, see if you can find comedian Gregory Proops within the movie.
Vikram is a young Indian man seeking a college education at Berkley, and comes to stay with his sponsors. Unfortunately, by a bad twist of fate, they are not there to receive him and he must seek out room and board on his own. He ends up taking a job as a front desk hotel clerk in exchange for a room, in the seedy Tenderloin district of San Francisco. Vikram encounters Sue, a young, aspiring Bohemian artist, with a bad mouth and a huge attitude. Why he falls for her, I don't know. Why they stay together, I really don't care. What is evident is that Vikram's visitors' visa has expired and he must marry a citizen or face deportation. Hmmm...I wonder where this is going in the plot. Haha....
This is one of the most poorly acted, badly written films EVER. Don't waste your $3.00 or the hour and a half it takes to get through it.
