August 7, 2004
A pleasing sendup of dating, high-tech contract employment and the immigrant experience. If you're Indian-American, you can add five or six stars to any critic's rating.

July 20, 2004
A good-natured Indian-American romantic comedy in the style of Bend It Like Beckham.
July 16, 2004
Bright, good-spirited and blissfully short for Bollywood, at a mere 118 minutes.

The cast, a mix of beauty-contest winners, models, veteran actors and newcomers, is as diverse as the characters they play and work together surprisingly smoothly.

This is light fare, but it draws its strength from a strong ensemble cast, in the spirit of Love Actually, and the sweetness of its characters.

July 16, 2004
It's an independent film about a specific culture that manages to bring that experience to life for any viewer in a funny, heartfelt, engaging way.

Innocuous but too-cutesy affair.

July 20, 2004
The constant cell phone chatter and pervasive split screen do little to prop up a limp, poorly structured screenplay.
July 16, 2004
There's enough schmaltz in the romancer Flavors to keep a second-rate TV sit-com going for an entire season, and then some.

By the end the whole thing feels a little like those ubiquitous $10.95 all-you-can-eat Indian lunch buffets. You can't walk away denying that it was extensive -- or even filling. But neither can you particularly remember any of the dishes you were served.
July 16, 2004
Unevenness in tone and the film's reliance on stereotypes is not uncommon to first feature films, and writers and directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. don't help their cause with dialogue that too often asks questions like 'What is life without love?'
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 15, 2004
Despite an appealing cast, the result has all the pizazz of processed cheese.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 13, 2004
Pic lacks density and spontaneity necessary to lift it out of its carefully posed and plotted set-ups and onto a bigscreen.
March 19, 2004
Flavorless.
