Think dhoklas, thepla, Garba and the stock markets and you think of Gujaratis! This sweet Indian community has always steered clear of unproductive activities and single-mindedly devoted itself to 3 things – making money, eating good food and get settled in some “phhorenn land” and become an NRI.
It is the craze of “phhorenn land” in the minds of great gujjus that forms the basis of our story.
Story : Sweetiee Desai is a happy go lucky Gujarati girl of around 22 years, born to a wealthy business man of Baroda. Her father is a jolly good person with only one ambition – to get his daughter married to an NRI from England. The reason being he was deported from the UK many years back and hence wants to see his daughter settled in the UK.
He fixes up her marriage with a family friend’s son, only to find out that he has eloped with a white girl! Disheartened, he now wants to find a match for her anyhow and hence takes the help of marriage portals. The daughter is in love with a local boy who is in his final year of Mass com but not an NRI.
She gives up all hope on the guy and is ready to marry whichever boy the father chooses for her.
But will Sweetiee marry the boy of her father’s choice? Or will her true love come back and win her back? Will the father be ok with the original groom? And most importantly, what about his condition of an NRI son-in-law?
