Cheeni Kum (2007)

Synopsis:
Grouchy, uptight, 64 year old Buddhadev Gupta lives a fairly wealthy lifestyle in London, England, along with his widowed TV and wrestling-addicted mom. He is the owner of 'Spice6' one of London's restaurants that specializes in East Indian dishes. One day a customer, Nina Verma, complains about the Zafrani Pulav, and Buddhadev does not take it well, only to subsequently find out that the Pulav was indeed imperfect. He decides to make amends to Nina and lends her his umbrella during a rainy day. Both subsequently become friends, fall in love and decide to get married. She is introduced to Buddhadev's mom, who instantly approves of her. Nina, who lives in Delhi with her widower dad, cuts short her visit when her dad becomes ill. Buddhadev and his mom also travel to India so that Buddhadev can ask for Nina's hand from her now fully recovered dad. Buddhadev does get meet with Nina's dad, and after considerable hesitation does manage to ask for Nina's hand and is abruptly refused - for Nina is only 34 years of age, and Buddhadev is 6 years older than Nina's dad. When Nina and Buddhadev insist on getting married, her Gandhian dad decides to undertake a fast unto death (Satyagraha). The question remains will Buddhadev and Nina continue their relationship, and how will this Satyagraha impact Mr. Verma's life?
