Movie Info

Written and directed by Raj Nidimoru, this romantic comedy follows the love lives of several Indians who have immigrated to America. Flavors centers around the cross-cultural wedding between American WASP Jenni (Jicky Schnee) and Rad (Anupam Mittal), whose Indian parents (longtime Bollywood regulars Anjan Srivastava and Bharati Achreker) are forced to negotiate a middle ground between traditional Indian culture and the culture shock induced by their blonde-haired future daughter-in-law. Meanwhile, immigrant housewife Sangita (Sireesha Katragadda) is given a reprieve from her lonely existence when her recently laid-off husband spends his days at home with her. Rounding out the film are Kartik (Reef Karim) and Racha (Pooja Kumar), a couple whose lives on opposite sides of the country have left them dependent on electronic means of communication.

  • Innocuous but too-cutesy affair.

  • A good-natured Indian-American romantic comedy in the style of Bend It Like Beckham.

    Jul 20, 2004
  • 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.

    Jul 16, 2004 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • There's enough schmaltz in the romancer Flavors to keep a second-rate TV sit-com going for an entire season, and then some.

    Jul 16, 2004 | Rating: 1/4
  • 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.
