Bhanu is a computer programmer, who lives in Seattle and is off to Hawaii for a much-needed vacation. Sunny, works for the same company, and they have a dislike for each other. He’s off to Hawaii as well to be a groom at his friend’s wedding. When he gets there, the hotel has lost his reservation and there are no rooms anywhere. On top of that, his ex is there with her new boyfriend. The two of them are in the same hotel, and Bhanu comes to his rescue after an ugly scene with his ex, pretending to be his new girlfriend. They agree to keep up the ruse, and she will attend all the wedding activities. Of course, we know how this goes, and they find an attraction to each other, and they fall for each other. Is this just an island romance or will it last beyond? With a great support cast of family and friends, and some laugh-out-loud moments, you root for these two to be together. Another enjoyable rom-com to add to your collection.
