Young Devan follows his father to Switzerland and is raised according to strict Tamil tradition. A prospective wife is found for him in Sri Lanka, but Devan falls for a local Swiss girl and can’t find the courage to tell her about his arranged marriage now he must decide between love and tradition. The second film by Zurich director Anna Luif is a feel-good movie that offers a look at the culture of Swiss Tamils. Although colorfully Bollywoodesque, including musical numbers, «Madly in Love» is still somewhat bland.
