Salaam Namaste

Saif Ali Khan is officially one of my favorite funny guys.

I found this movie browsing around on the Internet and decided to buy it since it paired Saif with Preity Zinta, a duo I thought worked well together in Kal Ho Naa Ho. And Salaam Namaste did not disappoint! Its so much fun--I recommend it for anyone who loves romantic comedies!
As I stated earlier, Saif and Preity bounce well off one another. Most of the great moments in this movie are when they are onscreen together,whether they are playing around or arguing, and there are plenty of them!
These two even have a steamy kissing scene(whooooooo),a rarity for Bollywood. But they pull it off effortlessly, and even look like they really enjoy it(its wayyy hotter than Aishwayra Rai and Hrithik Roshan's kiss in Dhoom 2! There are some weird cameos thrown in for comedy and some of them work and others don't(Ahem,cough,Abhishek Bachchan).

I can't tell you how much I love the song "My Dil Goes Mmmm"....sigh, makes me want to fall in love myself...

Can anybody tell me why Ambar's boss has a white dot on his forehead? Just wondering.

There is just one point I was a bit disturbed by:That Saif's character Nick had such a problem keeping his hands off Preity's Ambar, yet when she ended up pregnant we are lead to conclude that he spent about five months being a jerk to her and ignoring her with such ease!
It kind of bugged me that he wasn't punished just a bit more for that behavior during her entire pregnancy.

Kudos to the writers for brilliantly depicting a harsh reality of relationships --Its good in the beginning(it always is), but loses its sparkle rather quickly if there is no real commitment by both people.

Guessing that that the white dot was in the middle of his forehead, it's probably a bindi.

ambar's boss is Malayali i believe, i watched the movie sooo long ago, so in Kerala, people wear a small line of white powder stuff across their forehead, as sort of a religious symbol. its not exactly a bindi, because it's not for decoration.
