This is an entertaining film and a one time watch. All the Australian Indians are going to love this movie because it is about them in Sydney and it has a hero who is a much loved cricketer. For a country obsessed with fair skin with a flourishing fairness cream industry and people always asking for a very fair girl for their not so fair boy, it is not going to be easy to accept this plot of a handsome fair Australian munda ( boy) falling for a dark Indian woman seperated from her husband and with a 10 year old girl. For the Indian woman it is a fairly unIndian thing to do in falling for a foreigner and hence the title. On second thought the discriminating cine goer may quite understand Brett Lee's obession for dark, dusky, sensuous, and svelte Tanishka.
The setting is Sydney, Australia and there are a number of scenes with the famous Opera house and the Sydney harbour bridge in the background. The plot is predictable and the story trudges along with interactions among the lead couple( their bickering and romance), his Indian friend ( his constant advice ), her parents ( caught in conflict between modernity and Indian values), her daughter (having a soft corner for her mom's love interest) and the estranged ex husband ( wanting to take the daughter back to India). How much hackneyed can a plot get? We have seen it all happen many times.
In all fairness, parts of the film are interesting but then it becomes tedious and tiring after some time. It might be a cliché to say that Brett Lee acts fairly well and plays along merrily, takes his wicket and doesn't give away too many runs either. Tannishtha looks good and does okay within the confines of her role essaying the various shades with sincerity. A one time watch to sit back and enjoy.
