Plot[edit]

Anna (Subhashree Ganguly) is a NRI girl living in London whose father (Biswajit Chakraborty) wants her to get married with an Indian lad. However, Anna is deeply involved in a platonic relationship with a half-British boy Harry. Anna's brother, Sid (Tota Roy Choudhury) is in a relationship with a British girl and wants to marry her. However, his father refuses to let him marry her and which makes Sid choose to leave his parents' home. Meanwhile, Anna's father manages to bring his wife and daughter to India where he can find a suitable groom for his daughter. They meet Raj, a quintessential charming Bengali lad who falls in love with Anna and their marriage is finalized since Raj's father is an old friend of Anna's dad. However, although Anna likes Raj, she hatches a plan to delay and finally annul the engagement by implementing her brother's plan of bringing Raj to London and 'breaking up' with him abroad. Now in a foreign land, Raj tackles the adversities before him in order to win over Anna and marry her at last.

Controversy[edit]

The producers of the movie were sued soon after the release of the film, following the revelation that the plot was lifted from 2007 film Namastey London. Producer Vipul Shah brought plagiarism charges against the film and the film was banned from screening twice, once by a lower court and later by Calcutta High Court. However, after the High Court decision, the producers came to a truce after Shree Venkatesh Films agreed to pay a "fine" of seventy-five lakh (7.5 million) rupees. This out-of-court settlement can be considered hefty since the making of the film took about 2 crore (20 million) rupees. Moreover, the settlement required the movie to display a title card stating 'Based on Namastey London, a film by Vipul Amrutlal Shah'.[2]
