It's all dizzying, but what a delight.

a colorful charmer that might even persuade a few skeptics to check out the real thing.

[Director] Carroll knows his Bollywood stuff and, refreshingly, doesn't apologize for, or waste time explaining, an industry and a style that most Americans still regard as silly. Instead, he honors them.

Despite boasting bags of colour, energy and top Bollywood actor Salman Khan, this cross cultural concoction falls halfway between the genres.

The final half hour may lose its way but this remains a sassy and endearing romantic effort.

Marigold is saved from the predictability of its setup by the enthusiasm of its cast, color-drenched sets and costumes, and full-on musical numbers staged outdoors on a beautiful seaside stage.

An ambitious but largely successful attempt to marry Bollywood and Hollywood, Marigold is worth seeing for Ali Larter's performance and some joyous musical numbers.

It seems the only thing worse than a faulty culture shock comedy with zero charm is a faulty culture shock comedy with zero charm starring Ali Larter.

Bollywood fans will dismiss the mishmash as the work of an American director 'slumming' in a genre outside his own culture, and Western audiences unfamiliar with Hindi-language masala movies will find the whole thing puzzling.

Salman Khan is one of the big names in Bollywood whose appeal continually eludes, and here he simply proves that he is just as much a bafflement in English as he is in Hindi.

This first co-production between the United States and India starts badly and never recovers.

Carroll seems to be saying that we should regard Bollywood as a harmless part of Indian culture.

Ali Larter plays an amazingly bitchy actress sent to Bollywood. They hate her, then they love her. I didn't quite get the love bit.

It's colourful and pacy and the musical interludes are fun. But, on the whole, Marigold is predictable to the end.

As Prem's dad says of his son's feature film career, "I know nothing about dancing and the plots seem ludicrous to me."
