The Playback Singer

Ray, an aimless, would-be jungle-gym architect and his grounded, lawyer, wife Priya, find their lives disrupted - and their marriage upended - when Priya's estranged father, Ashok, comes to visit them from India. Ashok - a washed up "playback singer" who has spent his life singing for Bollywood films while divorcing several wives and ignoring his only child - stays with the couple as he embarks on a singing tour of the United States. When it turns out the tour is a scam - and that Ashok was an investor and has lost his money - an embarrassed Ashok sticks around while Priya tries to get his money back. He and Ray at first spend their days picking on each other but eventually bond over beers and their shared laidback attitude towards life. But when Priya finds out she's pregnant and Ray has a less than ideal reaction, Ashok realizes he needs to help Ray turn things around so he can be the good father and husband Ashok never was.
