Movie Info

What happens when you transplant an English rose to a countrytside in Punjab and expect her to thrive in an alien environment? The rose will either die or rebel. That's exactly what Jazz, rather Jasmeet does when her father Manmohan Singh brings her to India and gets her married to Arjun, a rough and tough farmer who can barely speak English. But, Jazz too is equally determined to marry Charlie Brown her British boyfriend. Caught in this emotional tug of war between father and daughter is poor Arjun, who is helplessly and hopelessly in love with his beautiful but unyielding wife. In Namaste London, this emotional and dramatic tug of war will determine whether love is more about giving or taking, whether Indian values must surrender to Western culture or whether Jazz or Jasmeet will win!

Namastey London doesn't really have anything new to say on an over-worked issue. But it does (mostly) manage to keep away from cringe territory, and even explores some subtle immigration quandaries.

Audience Reviews for Namastey London

A sweet Bollywood NRI romance. Lovely performance by Akshay Kumar, particularly. This is somewhat marred by the unfair and unbelievable stereotyping of the English characters, but it has some lovely moments that I find myself wanting to watch again and again.

This is a fantastic movie, very romantical! The movie plot is a little slow in starting (with only one good part in the beginning- Arjun giving Jazz away at the church wedding and then walking away), it doesn't pick up until Jazz and her parents travel to India and she thus meets Arjun for the first time. From then on, its fascinating and intriguing. Arjun dancing and singing is so expressive of his emotions and in his happiness, and one cannot help but feel for him throughout the movie. One also cannot help but connect with his plights and hardships, in all the characters- it is Arjun that one really connects with. His sense of humor is truly intriguing and he is such a sweetheart! FANTASTIC LOVE STORY! Great music; dance/pop/r&b-ish! It's good to see movies like this that give reflections to other films-i.e. like 40's American film noirs, nightclub sequences. (Example: Akshay Kumar (Arjun) singing "Chakna..." in the nightclub, as he holds the mike, he sways to and fro like most nightclub singers, but with a phenomenal twist! That is definitely my favorite scene! DANCE MUSIC!! Truly amazing, I don't mind getting the soundtrack for this.
