Movie Reviews

One of the worst desi movies
M. Bennett | Faribanks, Alaska United States | 02/26/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"It had alot of promise but it falls flat on it's face in every way.
plot idea - good
acting - bad
plot/script - BAD
If you really want to watch this movie, rent it. But I wouldn't even waste the 2 dollars and the 2 hours of your life this movie will take."

"This moive has all the makings of a good story love, sex, culture, & finding one's self, but the actual plot was horrible. The moive drags on and on.. the inital plot seems to be just that a shell of a story, it has no real depth and didn't tackel the whole Desi's theory like I thought.. I learned more form American Chai than this."
