Not so sophisticated, yet urban in taste Marigold is a love story of an American actress and a desi guy. Their meeting is destined and what hold further for the two, is something the audience looks forward.

Plot:  Ali Karter is the only child of the Lexton family residing in America. Her mother dies leaving her all to her father. Her father refuses to do anything with her and due to that, she leaves her home and travels a long way to India to chase her passion of acting. She acquires Kama Sutra 3 film which is then she discovers that it is cancelled. Left with no money she feels dejected. However she bags a role in a film and meets the dance instructor out there, Salman Khan. Salman discloses to her that his grandma had predicted that they would meet one day. This impresses Ali, and she falls for him. She also accompanies him to Jodhpur to attend his sister’s wedding where she discovers something big. What is that? Watch the movie to know.

Analysis: Declared as a flop, Marigold fails to capture the Indian audience under its charm. It is an interesting film with an old story line. Some scenes are just too predictable which kills the curiosity in people. The dialogue between Salman and Alex is just "WOW", something every youngster could relate to. There isn’t a single moment when you stick your eyes to the screen. The cinematography by Anil Mehta is fair.

Star Performance: Ali Karter is a fresh face for the audience which holds them. Salman’s performance is a big yawn. Nandana Sen is naturally funny. The other supporting actors have done a good job.

What is there?

1. Powerless screenplay.

2. Poor visual effects.

3. Boring music track.

4. Direction is a nightmare.

What is not there?

1. Sane writing of dialogues.

2. Impactful acting by the cast.

Verdict: On the whole, this movie couldn’t have got any better with such a plotline. The initial stage was flawed which turned the film upside down.
