Plot & Details
Two young immigrants find themselves torn violently between traditional ways and the strong desire for independence, in director Vipul Amrutlal Shah's romantic drama Namastey, London. Jasmeet 'Jazz' Singh is an attractive Indian girl living and working in London; she has earned the disdain of her parents by rejecting her cultural heritage and the traditionally-accepted "arranged marriage" of her family's culture. Meanwhile, Jazz's best friend, the Pakistani immigrant Imran Khan (Upen Patel) is kicked out of the house by his parents when he informs them of his decision to move in with a Caucasian girlfriend. Jazz's father grows so desperate to force her into planned nuptials that he carts her off to India, where her path crosses with that of Arjun (Akshay Kumar), a local farmer instantly desperate to marry her. Jazz concocts a clever means of dodging this proposition, but the smitten Arjun refuses to take no for an answer, and follows Jazz back to London. As this unfolds, Imran suffers under the pressure imposed on him by his girlfriend's parents, who insist that he anglicize his name and his religion.
