Innocuous but too-cutesy affair.
A good-natured Indian-American romantic comedy in the style of Bend It Like Beckham.
The constant cell phone chatter and pervasive split screen do little to prop up a limp, poorly structured screenplay.
Bright, good-spirited and blissfully short for Bollywood, at a mere 118 minutes.
There's enough schmaltz in the romancer Flavors to keep a second-rate TV sit-com going for an entire season, and then some.
This is light fare, but it draws its strength from a strong ensemble cast, in the spirit of Love Actually, and the sweetness of its characters.
A pleasing sendup of dating, high-tech contract employment and the immigrant experience. If you're Indian-American, you can add five or six stars to any critic's rating.
The cast, a mix of beauty-contest winners, models, veteran actors and newcomers, is as diverse as the characters they play and work together surprisingly smoothly.
By the end the whole thing feels a little like those ubiquitous $10.95 all-you-can-eat Indian lunch buffets. You can't walk away denying that it was extensive -- or even filling. But neither can you particularly remember any of the dishes you were served.
It's an independent film about a specific culture that manages to bring that experience to life for any viewer in a funny, heartfelt, engaging way.
Unevenness in tone and the film's reliance on stereotypes is not uncommon to first feature films, and writers and directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. don't help their cause with dialogue that too often asks questions like 'What is life without love?'
