Namastey London: ~~Namastey@India~~

Cast: Akshay Kumar: Arjun Singh Katrina Kaif: Jasmeet/ Jass Rishi Kapoor: Manmohan (Jasmeet’s father) Upen Patel: Imran 

Crew: Producer/ Director: Vipul Amrutlal Shah Music: Himesh Reshammiya 

Lyrics: Javed Akhtar 

Best scenes: 1. When Arjun asks name of Jasmeet 2. When Arjun is drinking fresh cow milk directly 3. All scenes where Arjun displays his selfless, innocent love towards Jazz 4. When Arjun tells an englishman what India is in a party when that man tries to insult India 5. When Arjun accepts Jazz decision of forfeiting their marriage and her marrying Charlie 6. The Rugby Match 7. The last scene when Arjun speaks english Story: Jazz comes to a Punjab village in India with her parents to her father’s childhood friend’s house. Arjun is the son in that house. Arjun is typically a fun loving punjabi boy belonging to a rich family and hence carefree in nature. Jazz on the other hand is an advanced; london born girl who loves advanced life, music, dance… 

Arjun falls in love with Jazz in first sight of her. Both parents also decide to marry Arjun with Jazz but this is against Jazz wishes who has a boyfriend in London (Charlie). Jazz friend in London suggests her over the phone to get married to Arjun as there is no other choice and come back to London with him and her family, and if she tries to run away from this marriage, she will not be, as they will find her and forcefully marry her to Arjun. 

So better is to marry and when they come back to London, she declares that she does not believe in this marriage and wants to marry Charlie. Charlie has 4 ex-wives in last 2 years and Jazz is going to be his fifth wife and nobody else but Arjun is helping her to marry with Charlie. Does Jazz marry Charlie. Is Arjun able to convince Jazz with his true love, Is Charlie really in love with Jazz – let it remain as suspense. Arjun has an edge over Charile on various fronts – character, integrity, truthfulness, sincerity, culture, respect for elders, respect for love, sportsmanship and finally a disclosure in the last scene which Jazz kept on thinking that he lacks. What makes this movie a must watch: The direction, story, acting, lyrics and the music. Katrina did a wonderful job and for the first time she did not use dubbing of her dialogues. Akshay fits very well in such type of roles and what I feel is he has a potential that nobody so far has been able to explore.
