When Harry Tries to Marry (2011) Hollywood

Love marriage vs arranged marriage.

Comedy | Romance

"A romantic comedy about NOT falling in love."
"He made all the arrangements. He just did not plan on love."

This was a hybrid movie, a very rare kind, more like a cultural crash where east meets west. The movie was all about a young Indian student Harish alias Harry who lives in the United States. When his parents' love marriage broke Harry decides to get marry arranged by his parents and relative like Indian culture. It is a long process, while everything going right direction an American girl fall for him from the very beginning which tumbles his heart. He tries his best to not to fall back to her and what happen next is the rest of the story.

The movie was colourful. Music was very good and some tunes were catchy. All in all it was completely a fun movie and sad that many people won't get it. You no need to familiar with both the cultures to understand. The movie was a fun debate between 'love marriage' and 'arranged marriage'. And what wins at the end is to know you should see the movie.

Everyone looked awesome in their own way. I thought another Keira Knightley (debuted in 'Bend it like Beckham') is on making after seeing a character played by Theresa. Harry was good like a typical Indian character and so his parents and uncle as well cute Nita. A simple entertainment about cross-culture, good to be watched at once.
