    Here is an exciting movie that follows one man and his dream of becoming successful and living a good life. Rajveer is late for work when he meets a taxi cab driver, and convinces him to let him drive. Radhika, an NYU music student, also gets into the taxi cab as Harry and Rajvee... read morer are about to drive off. They race through the city, and it is there that Harry discovers a prospect in Rajveer, and introduces him to his connections. Instantly, Rajveer becomes a tire changer in a stock car team, and this is the first step in his success. Rajveer becomes RV the club?s number one stock car driver. At a party, he meets up with Radhika and the two fall in love. They marry, and begin a life together having just about everything: a great home, beautiful children, and their love for each other. Until an accident occurs on the race tracks, RV and Radhika?s beautiful life is shattered. Soon after, things start to fall apart and everything changes. They are out of their beautiful home, and RV is replaced as the club?s top stock car driver. The two pick up, and try to place their lives back on track while trying to keep their small family together. Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukherjee stars. Definitely worthy!

While Ta Ra Rum Pum doesn't deliver pure joy, it's worth a pit stop , if for no other reason than for its amusing, back-seat view of an India in flux and seduced by Western pop culture. Full Review

The "cute" kids are insufferable, but leads Ali Khan and Mukerji radiate the unabashed star quality that's all but gone from American movies -- poverty and desperation haven't looked so glamorous sinc... Full Review

In its utter sincerity, it has an old-fashioned appeal that may not be for everybody but could definitely play in Peoria. Full Review
