The Pardes Movie Review

Kishori Lal (Amrish Puri) is a successful businessman settled in America but still emotionally attached to his motherland – India.So the pardesi comes to India with his son Rajiv (Apporva Agnihotri) to find a suitable match for Rajiv.He finds his bahu in Punjab-ki-kudi Kusum Ganga (Mahima Chaudhry) in the house of his childhood friend Suraj Dev (Alok Nath). To finalise the marriage he sends his son along with his foster son Arjun (Shahrukh Khan) to India. Arjun plays the cupid and returns to America with Kusum and Rajiv. All is hunky-dori till the true Bharatiya Nari finds out that her future husband is not a teetotaler. So, the heartbroken Kusum returns to India. Don’t conclude that it is the end of the Bollywood fairy tale. It is just the beginning as Arjun (the hero) falls in love with his would-have-been bhabi while playing the cupid.

The story is very simple but watchable with its pleasant music and good photography.
