    Just watched this last night after reading some good reviews when it originally came out in the theater and after immensly enjoying Mira Nair's Hysterical Blindness on HBO.
    I cannot believe that this movie has not been discussed at all on this forum. What an amazing Altmanesque assamble piece with very colorful and lovable characters. I have a lot of Indian friends and am familiar with Indian culture so this was a bonus, but the film was a homerun.
    The P.K.Dubai character stole the show for me. His over-the-top performance in the first half and very subtle introspecting second half performance was dead on. I actually know people like that [​IMG]
    The DTS track was a little harsh on the DVD for some reason. The music was fine but the dialogue had a little too much highs.
    One of the best foreign films I have seen since Amores Perros. Looking forward to buying this one ...

    Michael beat me to it. It was also discussed in the indie thread.

    Too bad the Universal DVD of the film is not half as good as the film itself. The film itself is an absolute favorite of mine.

    I didn't like the film...it just didn't interest me.
