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.

[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.

This fluffy cross-cultural experiment smacks of jumping on the Bollywood bandwagon with little insight into the genre it is trying to emulate or understanding of the country in which it's set.

If you enjoy such Bollywood-style numbers, try to tune out the movie when the music drops off and you'll enjoy it more.

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.
