Patel, who also served as a producer on the film, may be looking into graduating from playing stock supporting characters and into more challenging lead roles. The Wedding Guest makes a very compelling case for a promotion.
The scenery, nicely shot by Giles Nuttgens and covering a wide swath of the country - Amritsar, New Delhi, Jaipur and Goa - is always great, and Patel and Apte's chemistry approaches scalding levels as their characters grow closer.
Apte's character stays largely an enigma throughout, but her palpable frustration with the men and culture around her - plus the chance to vicariously visit Goa, that jewel of an Indian seaside getaway - makes "The Wedding Guest" worth an RSVP.
