Bombay To Bangkok(2008)

I ordered it a few minutes ago since it was only $5 at Nehaflix. I've sort-of wanted to watch this solely because it's so rare to see a non-white woman as the foreign love interest. I don't expect anything great, but I hope I don't wind up disappointed(e.g. Satyam).

I know nothing about Shreyas Talpade except I believe he's in Welcome To Sanjapur(sp?), which I also sort-of want to watch because of Amrita Rao(ever since Athidhi, she's become my new fave gal). Facially, he reminds me of another actor--is it Ritesh Deshmukh?

Lina Christensen is pretty, and she, too, reminds me of someone, but I can't think of who. I'm going to have to stop paying attention to the entertainment industry altogether so that everyone will stop reminding me of other people.

I will have to come back to this after I've watched it.

ETA 12/24/08: It wasn't good, but it was watchable. I wish there had been more running from the bad guys, more bad guys who were actually bad instead of lame, more shots of Bangkok, and a climax that wasn't such a big, yawning "Who cares?" The only thing that held my interest was the cute pairing of Shreyas and Lena. The movie would've worked better had it just been a "boy-meets-girl, but neither can speak the other's language, however love conquers all in spite of their cultural differences"-type romantic comedy.
