Surprisingly good
24 January 2004 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

I was expecting this movie to be horrible from the trailors, and even the beginning of the movie seemed pretty uninteresting. However, the main character, Murli, was not even shown in the advertisements. Instead, the publicity was just hoping to attract people on the basis that this was an another American Desi. This is a completely different type of movie than American Desi. The ads are very misleading; I even heard someone say that he thought this was a sequel to American Desi. Anyways, keeping in mind that this is a drama, not a comedy, the movie is about an illegal Indian immigrant looking for work in a corrupt system and about Purva Bedi who plays an ABCD (American Born Confused Desi). Murli plays his character in earnest, and his climax speech is absolutely amazing and heart-wrenching. Purva's story well depicts the hurtful nature of American stereotypes of Indians, and how ABCDs take no shame by engaging in insulting India.
