Cooking with Stella Reviews
So, like a con movie, the comedy value is played up. The romance scenes are Bollywood cheesy and are good for a laugh (or several). And of course the straight woman says what it is.
Clearly, they principles are not anyone's role model. Stella is corrupting and manipulative. Tannu starts off as an innocent, but her moral code is purely the result of family upbringing, and is easily subverted once she believes that her family has released her from those childish ways. (Thinking back on it, it would not be a stretch for that release to be contrived as part of the con). And generally, the cons feel entitled to all they can get off the naive, rich foreigners who are in their country.
The marks are cast as naive (like all marks) although you get the sense that they know what they are in for, and have accepted it as a cost of business.
Purely entertaining. Nothing deeper was intended. And fits is purpose well.
The writer and director have no sense of good karma vs. bad karma and think they were attempting to make a funny movie which they have miserably failed. They had such great actors to work with, and such great material to start with and managed to completely screw up the movie.
Not worth spending a dime on such trite.
