Washington and Choudhury definitely make for an attractive ethnic couple in Nair's cross-cultural love story. However, this staid romancer doesn't escape the distinction of its conventional makeup.

Nair and her screenwriter, Sooni Taraporevala, sometimes lose their focus trying to juggle half a dozen subplots. But it's nice to see a movie with a broad reach.
