Randeep Hooda returned to India (From Australia) in 2000 and started work in the marketing department of an airline. Hooda had left India in 1995 for higher studies. In 2000 ,he started doing amateur theatre in Delhi. He also did some ramp modelling and some print and television ads. While rehearsing for his first play, To Teach His Own, he got a call from a woman named Mira Nair, who said she would like to audition him for a role.He didn't know who she was until after his screen test. The next day she called and said, "Would you do me the honour of working in my film?" Randeep laughs as he recounts the conversation. "I was jumping around in my apartment."He dropped To Teach His Own with his director's blessings and threw himself into the part. And he got to speak with an Australian accent. See more »

I was skeptical at first about seeing this movie. I'm not into Bollywood movies at all. I saw this film with a high school senior class in Newark, New Jersey and they were captivated by the film as well as myself. Mira Nair is becoming one of the world's best known film directors as I write this review with Namesake on it's way to release. The characters were fully fleshed out rather than just caricatures. Who didn't love the wedding planner who curses like a sailor and the servant who succumbed to his charm and spell? Who didn't love the actual couple based on arrangement between families? The bride has a secret that could have destroyed or stopped the marriage. My sister's friend is probably going to be married in New Delhi herself. I wonder how similar and different the wedding and reception will be. From what I know about Indian weddings, I can invite you which means you, your family, friends, and neighbors. They appear to have a really good time at weddings in India. There was a serious topic that could have dampened or ruined the movie but it was well-orchestrated by the director.
