Unindian is the Australian RomCom released in 2015 starring Brett Lee and Tanisha Chatterjee, which has now been released in Indian theatres past week.
The plot is about a beautiful divorcee and a single mother, Meera who is smart and independent. She later meets Will, a blonde man. Falling in love with an Australian man is not only scandalous- it’s Unindian. The movie highlights the complexities of wooing another person from a different culture. Does Meera do as her family wishes? Or does she follow her heart and live her life the way she wants?
A critic wrote in times of India – “The breezy love story is realistic and so is the spontaneous humour Brett Lee, the former cricketer-turned-actor, is surprisingly a natural on camera”, It also quoted “Anupam Sharma’s romcom is a refreshing take on the cross-cultural relationship in contemporary times. The film doesn’t succumb to clichés.”
On the other end, Hindustan Times reviewed it as “tedious collection of clichés”.
“On the performance front, fast bowler Brett Lee is a pleasant surprise,” one of the reviews said. “He portrays Will with the natural flair of an actor. He endears you by being transparent with his emotions.”
