Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Love per Square Foot is a romantic comedy made in India with some rousing "Bollywood" musical numbers. Some characters speak English, others speak Hindi, with subtitles. Up-to-date conflicts involving cultural differences and the young adult desire for home ownership take center stage. It's a typical boy-meets girl, boy-loses girl, boy-gets-girl-back plot with no real surprises, but the journey to a happy ending is fun, if in need of some judicious editing at more than two hours in length. There's no overt sexuality or nudity; however, sexual elements -- such as infidelity and "will they or won't they? -- drive the plot. Expect kissing, romance, and some comic seduction sequences. A few swear words ("s--t," "Jesus") are heard, along with some sexual conversations (reference to erection, "screwing"). Continuing humor comes from plaster falling from the ceiling in one home, the result of noisy lovemaking in an upstairs apartment. Characters drink alcoholic beverages in social settings. For fans of the colorful, spirited Bollywood style of Indian filmmaking, the movie won't disappoint.

Is It Any Good?
The two charismatic lead actors are charming in this bright, colorful romance with a story that goes down easily and has just enough rousing musical numbers to give it solid Bollywood credentials. Vicky Kaushal and Angira Dhar, a newcomer, head a very engaging cast in a tale about the challenges of being young adults in the demanding, big-city world. Kids still living at home, the near-impossibility of owning even the tiniest of spaces, and the compromises that may trap even the best of us set the stage for a fairy tale romance. Filmmaker Anand Tiwari and his team deliver the goods: laughs, heart, and characters to root for. The film could be comfortably trimmed; more than two hours for such lightweight material can't help but slow the movie down. Comic sexual storylines make Love per Square Foot best for teens and up.
