What are critics saying?


L.A. Weekly by

For a movie that preaches cultural understanding, it sometimes seems a little too comfortable perpetuating ethnic stereotypes.


Los Angeles Times by Kevin Thomas

A potent, energetic heart-tugger and Khan and Kajol, major Bollywood stars, are highly appealing and equal to the demand of their emotion-charged roles.


The Hollywood Reporter by Kirk Honeycutt

This is a movie not built for subtlety, but it does tackle a subject American movies have mostly avoided -- that of racial profiling and the plight of Muslim-Americans.
