Namastey London is a romantic comedy-drama film from 2007, directed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah and stars Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, and Rishi Kapoor in lead roles. The movie follows the love story of a British Indian girl, Jasmeet or Jazz (Katrina Kaif), and an Indian guy, Arjun (Akshay Kumar), who grew up in Punjab. They met for the first time in India, and despite their initial dislike for each other, they eventually fall in love. However, Jasmeet's parents, Mr. (Rishi Kapoor) and Mrs. Malhotra, are strongly against their relationship because they want her to marry a wealthy British-Indian man who will lead a luxurious life with her in London.

The plot revolves around Arjun's attempts to win over Jasmeet's parents and convince them that he can provide a good life for their daughter. He manages to convince Jasmeet to marry him and commits to taking care of her, but her father disapproves of them and forces her to marry a rich British Indian guy, Charlie (played by Clive Standen). Jasmeet, devastated and heartbroken, reluctantly agrees to the wedding and moves to London with her new husband.

The rest of the story follows Arjun's journey to win Jasmeet back from Charlie and the couple's journey to convince Jasmeet's parents to accept their marriage. Arjun and his friend, Parvez (played by Javed Sheikh), disguise themselves as interior decorators and get hired by Charlie to decorate his house. They use this opportunity to get close to Jasmeet and convince her to leave her husband and return to India with Arjun. However, things do not go as planned, and the story takes a dramatic turn.

Namastey London is a beautifully structured movie with excellent cinematography, music, and performances. The film captures the essence of NRI (Non-Resident Indian) life, cultural differences, and the challenges that couples face while navigating through different cultures. The storyline is engaging, and the chemistry between Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif is brilliant. The actors have portrayed their respective roles with great dedication, and Rishi Kapoor's role as Jasmeet's father is also commendable.

The songs in the movie are a treat to the ears, and they add to the overall charm of the film. The most popular songs in the movie include "Chakna Chakna," "Main Jahaan Rahoon," and "Rafta Rafta." The background score is also fantastic and keeps the audiences hooked throughout the movie.

Overall, Namastey London is a must-watch movie for those who love romantic comedies and Indian cinema.
