Pardes is a 1997 Indian Hindi-language musical drama film directed by Subhash Ghai. It was released on 8 August 1997; the film stars Shahrukh Khan, Amrish Puri, Alok Nath and newcomers Mahima Chaudhry and Apurva Agnihotri. The film was a commercial and musical hit. Mahima Chaudhry won the Best Newcomer Award for her performance; the film was remade in Telugu as Pelli Kanuka. Pardes is the story that discusses the cultural values of the East & the West portrayed by Arjun and Ganga. Kishorilal is a wealthy businessman living in America visits his old friend Suraj Dev in India. During his stay at the conservative traditional Indian household, he gets to know Suraj's eldest daughter Ganga who shares his love for Indian culture. Ganga's younger siblings are enchanted by the uncle from America because they perceive Western culture and values to be more desirable, they come up with a plan to impress him with an English song. Unimpressed, he sings back a hymn-like song in a more traditional Indian style, "I Love My India."
Ganga joins in this song. The song emphasizes the movie's theme in key moments. After this event, Kishorilal asks Suraj to promise Ganga as a bride for Rajiv, he is convinced that Ganga will be not only a perfect bride, but she will be able to revive treasured Indian values and make sure it is passed on to his Americanized family. Kishorilal knows he will have a tough time trying to convince his son to meet Ganga let alone marry her. Back in America, he asks his foster son. Arjun has values similar to Ganga, he spends most of his time working full-time in his uncle's garage and in the spare time he composes music and is being interviewed for composing a new hit song. However, when Kishorilal calls to ask for his help, his loyalty to his uncle is so strong that he cuts the interview short. Arjun flies to India ahead of Rajiv to set the stage for him to meet Ganga, unintentionally offending Ganga's family with a barrage of orders that includes removing farm animals from around the house and gardens into a nearby farm and relocating their servants from residing inside the house to living outdoors.
As a result of this Ganga dresses up with horn-rimmed eyeglasses and buck teeth, sending Arjun into a panic about the success of Kishorilal's plans. He gets a chance to meet the authentic Ganga, he is entranced. In an effort to make up for his offensive behaviour Arjun promises to be a trustworthy friend and asks her how he should make amends. Ganga requests he return the farm animals and the servants back into the house, she explains to Arjun that in her family, they love all who are a part of it animals and servants. This is in direct contrast to Arjun's western view that they are not important; when Rajiv arrives, he acts offensively. Arjun, despite his own attraction to Ganga, smooths the way for Rajiv to bond with Ganga, as per Kishorilal's wishes. In his determination to make Rajiv's marriage happen with Ganga Arjun deceives Ganga about Rajiv's character and habits. Rajiv and Ganga both agree to marry each other thanks to Arjun's efforts; the engagement is set in India, but the families agree that Ganga should visit America before her wedding day.
Soon after her engagement, Ganga arrives in the USA but her feelings are hurt as her traditional dress is despised by Rajiv's snarky mother. After a few weeks in the US, Ganga is home-sick, her only true friend is Arjun with. One day, she is invited to attend a large and influential gathering arranged by Kishorilal and is invited to sing, she sings the same "I Love My India" and receives sincere applause. Ganga realizes that Rajiv isn't the person Arjun had portrayed him to be when they were in India. Rajiv not only seems eager to leave her at home whenever possible, with little explanation or apology; when he does bring her out with his friends, he gets drunk and acts like a bully. At one party, he is drinking and flirting with other women while another man begins dancing too with Ganga. Rajiv ignores the situation, Arjun fights the man to the ground. Ganga is shocked to discover pictures of Rajiv with his girlfriend that show he has had a sexual relationship with her, she is astonished to find that Kishorilal's family treats Arjun, a trusted member as a servant.
When Rajiv abandons Ganga for dinner with his girlfriend, Ganga confronts Arjun and demands an explanation. Arjun justifies Rajiv's behaviour, reminding Ganga that Rajiv lives like an American and that she should not make a fuss about such a petty affair; this exchange leads to a key monologue from Ganga. Infuriated that Arjun sees Rajiv's casual, unapologetic unfaithfulness as a "petty affair", she tells him that she needs "Love" – the kind of love he gives others, she further rejects being made into a "decoration" to fit into Kishorilal's palatial mansion. At this point, Arjun realizes that he has fallen in love with Ganga, but because of his immense loyalty to Kishorilal, he continues to encourage her to continue with the engagement and worry about changing Rajiv later; the next day, it is Arjun's birthday and he is depressed, a thoughtful Ganga senses his frustration and asks Rajiv to accompany her to wish Arjun a "happy birthday". Rajiv refuses, making it clear that he views Arjun as some kind
