A suddenly single bachelor, an oddly attractive neighbor and a popular women's magazine are the ingredients in this delicious romance that pays homage to classic Bollywood cinema while spinning a modern love story that is uniquely its own. From the director of "Chutney Popcorn" and the writer of "Monsoon Wedding," and starring Genie award-winner Roshan Seth and Academy Award nominee Carol Kane, COSMOPOLITAN mixes the bittersweet comedy of real life with the intoxicating magic of rediscovered love. Also starring Madhur Jaffrey and Purva Bedi. An INDEPENDENT LENS acquisition.

Premiere: Independent Lens, June 1, 2004 at 10 PM
