Nisha Ganatra



(English & Hindi w/E.S.)
From the director of Chutney Popcorn comes this charming story of discovering friendship and romance…through modern-day courtship. Gopal (Roshan Seth) finds himself suddenly on his own in his suburban household after his wife leaves him to follow a guru in India and his daughter takes off with her German boyfriend. Faced with the depressing stillness of an empty home, Gopal turns to watching the classic Indian Bollywood films of his youth and reading Cosmopolitan magazines his daughter left behind for advice on how to navigate the choppy waters of love and relationships. Gopal takes to heart these classic and modern advice tips as he pursues his neighbor, a free-spirited, eccentric divorcee. As their relationship deepens, Gopal must confront the painful demons of his past as he explores the possibilities awaiting him in the present and future. Cosmopolitan is a lighthearted film that tugs on our modern heartstrings and entertains with lively song and dance numbers a la Bollywood style.
