Another stellar performance by Roshan Seth
30 October 1998 | by (Oakland, California) – See all my reviews

"The Journey" concerns an elderly Indian gentleman, a former private school headmaster, who comes to Pittsburgh to live with his son's family after the death of his wife. His son is a doctor, married to an American woman, and they have a young daughter who instantly takes to her grandfather, a kind, wise, soft-spoken, well-educated man. But of course cultural differences cause difficulty in the family. The slow, awkward resolution of this conflict, without demonizing anyone, is the heart of this touching story about family love crossing cultural boundaries. Roshan Seth ("Buddha of Suburbia") gives a consummate performance as Mr. Singh, though he could be considered typecast. "The Journey" has not received US distribution, but if you get a chance to see it, your life will never be the same afterward.
