Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge - External Reviews

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

The light tone keeps you engaged for most of the film, especially the parodied songs. There are a few "aawwww" moments too. But, it is a tiny lecture on the changing value system and gets a little sarcastic. Cute in a very domestic sort-of a way.
