Her father and mother are thrilled to have their eldest daughter Pinky marrying a nice Indian boy, so Jess' family is caught up in elaborate plans for the wedding of her older sister, and Jess must do everything expected of a dutiful daughter. Jess isn't interested in things like that; she `s more passionate and concerned with soccer and fantasizing playing next to her idol David Beckham. For inspiration she also has a large picture of him looming over her bed! As teenger she is, she still lives with her conservative parents who are not fond of this hobby, but as long as it doesn't interfere with her future, they grundgingly go along with it.

In a way we fell bad for blaming them; after all, they are relatively progressive. In fact they have decided to allow their daughters to choose who they will marry for themselves! Near the end of the film, Jess' father finally comes to realize that his daughter needs to play in order to be happy and that's what he wants for her. There's also a development with Jules and her parents, although it's not nearly as successful because she's just a secondary character. It shows especially when the relationship turns into a predictable case of mistaken sexual orientation (“ lesbian?”). Jess and Jules have a believable friendship, so we're invested in their eventual fight when a romance develops between Jess and Joe, their good-looking Irish coach, with whom Jules has a
