Namastey London Preview
|What happens when a girl who has been raised in Britain is made to marry a rustic guy from Punjab? And how long will such a marriage between two very different people last?|
Vipul Amrutlal Shah's forthcoming movie 'Namastey London' has an interesting story. The movie stars Akshay Kumar , Katrina Kaif , Rishi Kapoor , Upen Patel and Pakistani actor Javed Sheikh .
Akshay Kumar as Arjun
Arjun is a rough and tough farmer full of trademark Punjabi humour. His heart almost bursts out of his robust chest with joy when he marries a beautiful and sophisticated girl from London. Proudly he says to his friends: “I'll be the first guy in my entire clan to have suhaag raat in London”. Little did he know that his joy would be short-lived.
Katrina Kaif as Jazz
Her real name is Jasmeet. But she prefers to be called Jazz. She has been raised in Britain and is absolutely obsessed with western culture. To bring her closer to her Indian roots, her father marries her to Arjun, a farmer from Punjab. But she refuses to acknowledge the marriage.
Rishi Kapoor as Manmohan Singh
Manmohan is Jasmeet's father. He is worried about his daughter's obsession with everything western. The only solution he finds is to get her married to an Indian who will make her realize the importance of Indian values. So he gets Jazz married to Arjun, without realizing the possible outcome.
Upen Patel as Imran Khan
Imran is a Pakistani living in Britain. Like Jazz, he too has been born and brought up in London and is therefore out of touch with his roots. He has a British girlfriend.
Imran's father, Parvez Khan is a friend of Jazz's father Manmohan Singh. So Imran, too, is a friend to Jazz.
Javed Sheikh as Parvez Khan
Javed Sheikh is a famous Pakistani actor. In the film he plays a Pakistani taxi driver. He is a very good friend of Manmohan Singh and is worried about his son Imran's (Upen Patel) inclination towards everything western. He also cannot accept Imran's live-in relationship with a British girl.
Jazz (Katrina) is married to Arjun (Akshay) against her wishes. Although Arjun loves her more than anything, Jazz sees him as just a rustic farmer who cannot even speak English properly. She refuses to acknowledge the marriage and longs to be with her British boyfriend Charlie Brown.
Arjun's love for Jazz remains unchanged even when he realizes that she feels nothing for him. A good-hearted man that he is, he won't force anything upon her. He decides to win her love instead.
Jazz returns to her former life and wants to marry her British boyfriend.
In pursuit of his beloved, Arjun lands in London. Soon he begins to win everyone's heart with his simple, straight-hearted and jubilant nature. But the question is: will he win Jazz's love?
The intrinsic message of 'Namastey London' is that true love means giving, rather than demanding. The movie's protagonist Arjun is the embodiment of this.
The movie also gives a message that Indian culture or values are in no way inferior to the western ones. The film's story is about returning to one's roots.
There is also an angle of Indo-Pak friendship provided by Rishi Kapoor and Javed Sheikh.
'Namastey London' has story and screenplay by Suresh Nair. Himesh Reshammiya has composed the songs while Javed Akhtar has written the lyrics.
The movie's producer and director Vipul Amrutlal Shah wanted to capture London like never before in this film. So he roped in noted cinematographer Jonathan Bloom to shoot the film.
'Namastey London' is slated to hit the theatres in March 2007.

|Music Review : Catchy Songs (3/5)|
Love him or loathe him, but you can't ignore Himesh Reshammiya. The music composer and singer with a nasal voice has given a new definition to Hindi film music. His voice and his uninhibited style of singing has been liked by many and immensely hated by others. But the man continues, undaunted, to c...
