There is also a malayalam film based on the same lines called April Fool.
Lord, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

The movie I thought of with a "free lunch" is The Last Supper.

I still have the receipt: "Cat. Start with B Business RD = 593.75"

So, yes Nick, not technically free. Still a very nice, unexpected, no-strings-attached experience. We like to go to India for something different. Indians like to meet/talk to foreigners for the same reason, I suppose. Sometimes that's not as easy as it may seem - unless there is an icebreaker of some sort.

Daisy[shock], thank gawd!:D

Just to clarify, The Last Supper is not a Christian film. It's about people who invite others with different political views over to supper and then make fun of them. It takes a nasty turn later, and that's where the "last supper" title comes from.

Getting invited to lunch by strangers based on newspaper ads...hmm I'd be wondering about the prospect of the guy having me for lunch with some fava beans and Chianti :laugh:

By the way, this whole Indian gem scam has become as laughable as the Nigerian king and his inheritance scam and I have to say, anyone who falls for this gem scam is not very bright.

Don't worry, 'Silence of the Goras' took place over 60 years ago.:laugh:
