There should be a ban on stupid movies like Salaam Namaste.
Nikhil Arora (Saif Ali Khan) is an architect turned chef in Australia where medical student Amber Malhotra (Prety Zinta) is moonlighting as a Radio DJ for some extra moolah.
The two are attracted to each other but decide to live together for a while to test the waters before embarking on the next phase of their relationship.
So, what do you think happens when boy lives with girl? Amber gets pregnant horrifying Nikhil, who is not ready for marriage, kids and domesticity. She wants to keep the baby while he wants to "kill" it.
The love birds who were cooing into each other's ears five minutes ago shift to high-decibel yelling at each other.
The rest of the movie is mostly screeching and more screeching until mercifully the director runs out of time.
Salaam Namaste missed the chance to better explore the theme of living together, still a novelty to most Indians.
After years of filming in the Europe and U.S., it seems like Bollywood has finally discovered Australia.
Even by Bollywood standards (or lack thereof), Salaam Namaste is horrible. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
