Movie Info

When Harry Tries to Marry is a cross-cultural romantic comedy about a young Indian-born bachelor who lives in New York City. Harry's handsome and charming, but he's cynical about love. He's never really gotten over his parents' divorce -- they were a modern Indian couple who married for love and it didn't last. So to improve his odds of living "happily ever after," Harry decides to have an arranged marriage, and asks his uncle back home in India to assist him in arranging the introduction to an appropriate Indian woman. To the dismay of his parents and friends, Harry finds the perfect girl and embarks on a long-distance courtship. But unexpectedly, Harry's friendship with Theresa, a fun and sexy American student, becomes confusing, appealing -- and maybe a little bit romantic. Once Harry, his friends and the entire wedding party converge in India, Harry's plan to avoid romantic risk becomes a recipe for chaos. Can anyone protect themselves from a broken heart by leaving the passion out of marriage? And, when all is said and done, does Harry really want to? -- (C) 108 Pics

Too amateurish, basic and tacky to really make an impact.

If there's a fresh idea in "When Harry Tries To Marry," I couldn't find it.

Nothing new under the sun, but Padrai spices things up just enough.

April 22, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The larger problems are the usual ones for low-budget romcoms: haphazard plotting, clumsily staged and overly broad comedy and clunky dialogue.

April 21, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Inspires little more than eye-rolling and impatient finger-tapping.

April 21, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A bright, colorful slab of faux-multiculturalism, When Harry Tries to Marry is a substandard romantic comedy gussied up in Indian drag.
