    not sure what k3g is but i tried to watch mohabbatein(just couldn't bear to sit through the complete movie...) and it was an incredibly horrible movie....

    Namesake, on the other hand, was classy. Direction could have been better but the performances were superb.

    EDIT: On another note, what's up with the **** titles these days. First, Shakalaka Boom Boom ... now Tara Rum Pum.

    It sure was. What's up with the latest Bollywood trend of stereotyping NRI's as clueless, wannabe Westerners, who love to drink, have sex non-stop, and know nothing about their home culture? And of course, they are shown the errors of their ways by an innocent, pure, honest, patriotic man/woman from back home. The only bigger target for scorn in these type of movies are the white people, who are generally shown as being racist and snobbish.

    90% of the Bollywood producers are using it(Bollywood) to turn their black money into white. Just avoid desi movies in general and before you rent out a movie do your research, it is well worth.
