Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, Brian Grazer and Ridley Scott team to tell the true juggernaut success story of a cult figure from the streets of 1970s Harlem in American Gangster.
 
Nobody used to notice Frank Lucas (Washington), the quiet driver to one of the inner city's leading black crime bosses. But when his boss suddenly dies, Frank exploits the opening in the power structure to build his own empire and create his own version of the American Dream. Through ingenuity and a strict business ethic, he comes to rule the inner-city drug trade, flooding the streets with a purer product at a better price. Lucas outplays all of the leading crime syndicates and becomes not only one of the city's mainline corrupters, but part of its circle of legit civic superstars.
 
Richie Roberts (Crowe) is an outcast cop close enough to the streets to feel a shift of control in the drug underworld. Roberts believes someone is climbing the rungs above the known Mafia families and starts to suspect that a black power player has come from nowhere to dominate the scene. Both Lucas and Roberts share a rigorous ethical code that sets them apart from their own colleagues, making them lone figures on opposite sides of the law. The destinies of these two men will become intertwined as they approach a confrontation where only one of them can come out on top.
 
Washington and Crowe lead a spectacular cast of accomplished and rising stars--Chiwetel Ejiofor, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Josh Brolin, Ted Levine, Armand Assante, John Ortiz, John Hawkes, RZA, Common and T.I.--in this blistering tale of a true American entrepreneur.

Aditya (Shahid Kapur) is a Mumbai based industrialist who faces defeat in both his business and his love life. With the love of his life getting married to someone else, he is unable to muster up the courage to return home, and he aimlessly boards a train, bounding away into the night.
 
On the train he meets Geet (Kareena Kapoor) - a beautiful but annoyingly talkative girl who is leaving Mumbai to go her hometown - Bhatinda (Punjab) who has plans of eloping with her boyfriend once she reaches there.
 
Geet irritates Aditya to the point of getting him to leave the train. As she tries to get him back on the train, she ends up missing it and the two find themselves stranded on a desolate station with no luggage or money.
 
Then begins the idyllic journey to Bhatinda in which this odd couple make their way through buses and taxis and camel-carts, crossing Highways and deserts and lakes, meeting all kinds of people. On arrival, Geet's family mistakes the two for lovers and even before this misconception can be cleared, Geet escapes to her boyfriend in Manali. Aditya leaves with her, only confirming the suspicion that they are lovers. In Manali, Aditya feels empowered to return to Mumbai and resurrect his ailing business.
 
One day when everything is turning out well in Adityas life, Geet's family who think that she is with him confronts Aditya. Through them he learns that Geet has not returned home. He takes it upon himself to find her. He finally tracks her down in a Himalayan town and begins another journey to reach Bhatinda and flow into the colors and conceptions of a loud and happy North Indian family!
 
Lilting, musical, amusing and packed with mischievous contrivances - this breezy fun-filled romantic comedy is a movie people of all ages will enjoy.
