Upon reaching this island, the Indians were enslaved, tortured and made to labor in what is now known as the "Coolie Ghat". After the British left India, the Indians in Mauritius decided to continue to live there along with other nationals from different countries. Amongst the Indian family was the Sinha family, consisting of Shekhar, his wife Sandhya and son, Jai. Jai attends culinary classes where he meets with beautiful Swede, Sophie Besson, and after a few misunderstandings both fall in love with each other. Sophie introduces Jai to her parents, Norman and Claire.

Overall an OK movie
3 December 2005 | by james-1415See all my reviews

This is a movie about trying to listen to your heart in the face of pressure from your own family. Karan Sharma is cast as a somewhat gawky man/boy, Jai Sinha, who falls in love, but circumstances force him to restrain himself.

I saw this movie on DVD in the US. Some of the dialog was in English - so I don't know how that played in the movie theaters in India, unless they dubbed that in Hindi. I liked the overall feel of the movie. The performances were good. In many situations, the plot made the characters act in a fashion very consistent with real life. I liked that. One thing that was portrayed unrealistically was the mannerism and language of Sophie's family, especially her father. His manner of speaking was as if he a landlord in India, and not a white businessman in Mauritius. Also, I didn't like the overworked ploy of making the girl fall for the guy by getting him to insult her first. The director could have been more creative on that.
