It is easy to fall in love, but difficult to commit to a lifelong relationship. Beyond the night parties and walks into the sunset, when two lovers begin to live together in a house, the previously obscure truth of what it means to share oneâ€™s life with somebody dawns. But, despite the hesitations and reluctance to commitment, it is love that eventually triumphs. This is what Siddharth Raj Anandâ€™s first movie Salaam Namaste is about.
Cast: Preity zinta, Saif Ali Khan, Javed
The movie is about two Indians, Nikhil Arora, called Nick, (Saif Ali Khan) and Ambar Malhotra, called Amby, (Preity Zinta) who have left India in order to live their own lives in Australia: Nick finished studying Architecture in his hometown of Ludhiana and moved to Melbourne, Australia, to pursue dreams of becoming a chef, and does so at a restaurant called “Nick of Time”, which provides him with his laid-back lifestyle (and he can get up late in the morning); Ambar left her home due to her parent’s persistence to get her married — they are likely to introduce the entire male Indian population to her if she does not choose a suitor — and is studying to become a surgeon. When Nikhil is supposed to do an interview for the Australia based Indian radio station “Salaam Namaste”, he is late (due to oversleeping), so a war of very public words ensues with the RJ of the show, Ambar Malhotra.
After many misunderstandings, fighting and convincing, they fall in love and move in together. Soon they discover each other’s tastes and distastes and rest of the movie covers how they continue their relationship, until the day Ambar discovers that she is pregnant. Despite Nick’s wishes she decides to keep the baby which results in a split between the two. However, they are still forced to live in the same house for the time being. Nick realizes over time that he’s still in love with her and warms up to the thought of becoming a father and marrying Ambar. It’s almost too late when he finally proposes to her – Ambar gives birth to twins and the two reconcile.
