Synopsis

A young Indian dance teacher with the best moves in Delhi embarks for New York City in pursuit of fame and fortune -- only to wind up working as a waiter in an Indian restaurant. But good fortune can arise from strange places as our hero, Ramu Gupta (Mistry), discovers when a catering gig at a ditzy socialite's (Tomei) birthday party catapults him into an extravagant version of the American dream. Mistaken for a spiritual healer, Ramu becomes an overnight celebrity with the city's elite hanging onto his every work -- no matter how absurd. The trouble is, he's also falling in love with the one woman (Graham) who knows the real source of his seemingly profound insights. Now, Ramu must choose between his newfound notoriety and his love for a woman who accepts him as he is.
