American actress Marigold (Ali Larter) is stranded in Bombay after her latest film is pulled. Soon though, the bitchy star is back in front of the camera when she's cast in a Bollywood movie.

★★★★★

East meets West and emerges triumphant in this sweetly sardonic love story.

B-movie actress and grade-A bitch Marigold (Ali Larter) is stranded in Bombay after her latest film is halted. She is cast in a Bollywood film, where hunky dance coach Prem (Bollywood megastar Salman Khan) teaches her about more than just where to put your feet.

Writer/director Willard Carroll obviously loves Bollywood, portraying it with wit rather than the usual stereotyping. The inevitability of the plotting is lightened by flashes of sharp humour, top-notch dancing and Bollywood romance. The final half-hour may not know what to do with itself, but Marigold still brings the sassy back.

The final half hour may lose its way but this remains a sassy and endearing romantic effort
