Vipul Shah's Namastey London brings back together again the Superhit jodi of Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar. The film's story is about a British girl(Jazz, played by Katrina) who gets married to a Punjabi Boy(Arjun, played by Akshay Kumar).
What happens when you transplant an English rose to a countryside in Punjab and expect her to thrive in an alien environment? The rose will either die or rebel. That’s exactly what Jazz, rather Jasmeet does when her father Manmohan Singh brings her to India and gets her married to Arjun, a rough and tough farmer who can barely speak English.
Born and brought up in London, you understand why she loves and wants everything that?s western, including a husband. You also understand her anger and rebellion when he father forces her to marry a stranger.
Arjun, whose joy knows no bounds when he marries the beautiful and sophisticated Jazz. But the joy soon turns to despair when he realizes this marriage means nothing to her and she is determined to marry her British boyfriend, Charlie Brown.
Caught in this emotional tug of war between father and daughter is poor Arjun, who is helplessly and hopelessly in love with his beautiful but unyielding wife.
But does Jazz realize the folly of her stubborn behavior? Or will she wake up too late?
In Namastey London, this emotional and dramatic tug of war will determine whether love is more about giving or taking? Whether Indian values must surrender to Western culture?
Whether Jazz will win or Jasmeet!
