"From Sydney With Love" is loaded with newcomers, bad acting and also a plot so convoluted and nonsensical you wonder how something like this can be converted into a full-fledged movie.

Story : It's about a Bengali girl who is on her way to Sydney, Australia, to study. Her mother is worried that she may go 'off track' once exposed to the western culture, while her father trusts her completely. Once there, she runs into three boys, one after another, and all manage to befriend her at their first meeting. Next, you know that all are vying for her attention and more importantly, all are in her class.

She keeps reminding all, one after another, that her parents have sent her to study and she cannot break their trust and fool around. But the inevitable happens, one manages to get in bed with her, she comes to Calcutta, he comes in search of her with another friend.

When he learns she is pregnant, he runs; his friend stays. Later he has a change of heart.

But by then, the other friend has offered to marry her. He returns and now wants to marry her. So what does friend do? He does the next best thing. He asks girl who she wants to marry. Obviously she will marry the one who impregnated her.

In between all this , girls sister is having boyfriend trouble with her dad, so this friend helps her as well.
In between bad acting, you are subjected to bad songs with pathetic  choreography.

When the who saga ends, you feel sorry not only for the people who acted in this project and the people who were in the creative team, but also for the few who will saunter into multiplexes to watch this film.
