This movie was wonderful, and it isn't only for the senior audience. The cast was stellar. For anyone who’s fascinated by India, as I am, this is a must-see; two of my VERY favorite novels are about the culture of India, “Random Placement” by Lindsay McFerrin Bates (about the secretive Jogini culture of abuse of Untouchable girls) and “A Suitable Boy” by Vikram Seth (about the tradition of arranged marriage), both on amazon in UK. I might even go see this movie again and will continue to seek out other India movies and books!

This was one of the best film experiences I have had in a long time. Colourful and moving. Stunning scenery and superb acting.
Relax and let the film just be a film, designed to entertain, which it does in spades. With this galaxy of stars the acting was bound to be good but I felt that Tom Wilkinson was outstanding. The excellent soundtrack added to the enjoyment. Probably not for the young film goer though.

Lighten up, critics! This is not a great film but a good honest feelgood movie. It doesn't pretend to be offering deep psychological or even cultural insights - it's a light-hearted exploration of an unusual 'what-if' situation (I think it follows Deborah Moggach's book quite closely). As such, it's fine. The script doesn't exactly crackle, but it doesn't clunk either. I just sat back and enjoyed the marvellous cast and the real Indian locations (can we have more films like it, please?). I do agree with Matthew T on this, though: if there's one thing that nearly ruins this film, it's the performance of Dev Patel (so good in Slumdog Millionaire, so bad in this!).
