Marigold (Ali Larter) is a Hollywood actress who comes to India to act in the sequel of Kama Sutra. After coming to Goa, she gets to know that the project is shelved. She loses all her luggage too and does not have money to return back to the USA. That is when she meets a Bollywood choeographer Prem (Salman Khan). Both of them immensely like each other. But there is a twist. Marigold already has a boyfriend called Barry (Ian Bohen). Prem's marriage is fixed with Janvi (Nandana Sen). The rest of the story is all about what happens next.
Salman Khan is little dull in the character of Prem. Ali Larter is just adequate. Gulshan Grover did the character of Rajput servant who follws hero like a shadow. Suchitra Pillai is alright.
Story - Screenplay - direction: Story of the film is routine except for having the backdrop of a blonde falling in love with an Indian guy. Direction by American director Willard Carroll is cliched. Screenplay of the film is routine. The director failed to establish love/emotions in the beginning of the film. The quadrangle aspect is badly handled towards the end of the film.
Other departments: Music of the film is alright. Dialogues written and dubbing done are not upto the mark. You feel as if you are watching a TV cartoon serial if you listen to the dubbing done to heroine character. Cinematography is fair. There is no energy in dances. Editing is OK. The location of Rajastani fort is very good.
Analysis: The film is boring right from the frame one. This film seem to be done in English first and dubbed into Hindi later. There is no lip sync. And you feel like watching a dubbed Hollywood film. This film fails to connect to the common audience. On a whole, Marigold is a bad film and Salman is wasted in it!
