Storyline

Harish Kumar Patel lives with his mom and dad in Valsad, Gujarat, India, where he is studying Electronic Engineering. His dad, Satish Kumar, wants him to re-locate to the U.S., live with the Bakshis, study, and marry the girl of his choice. Harish must first go through the blessings of an Astrologer, Bholey Shankar Maharaj, who blesses him, informs him that he will meet a girl whose name will start with "P", who he will marry. An overly excited Harish travels all the way to Houston, Texas, U.S. where he is met fondly by the Bakshi family, consisting of Mrs. and Dr. Bakshi, Mohan, and Deepu. In keeping with the fear and paranoia after the September 11 attacks, Mrs. Bakshi has made it a practice to place American flags in the front pockets of her sons, and she does it now for Harish as well. Mohan is around Harish's age and shows him around the campus. Harish meets with a beautiful Malyalee girl, Priya, and falls in love with her. But things do not go as planned when Harish finds out ...

Trivia

The film is based on Sunil Thakkar's own experiences running and throwing parties for the Music Masala radio station, and having to discriminate between "Fresh off the Boat" Indians and the more fashionable, hip, Americanized Indians. Ironically enough, Thakkar's character in the film is exactly the type of person he barred from parties in those days. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Bakshi: I was looking at your statements.
Mo: What statements?
Dr. Bakshi: What statements?... What statements have you have?... Your credit card statements. $400 for car speakers. $1800 for rims. $80 at Starbucks... When your mom makes the best masala chaia, you're spending $80 for coffee.

what a great movie aha
17 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

OK, i don't understand why people are so offended by this movie. Maybe i can't talk being a white Canadian with German and Italian background..However i have a really good Indian friend, i work with lots of indians and i'm nearly in contact with them everyday. do any of you realize that most of the actors were Indian??? why would they want to be in a movie so offensive to their own people. I love movies like this, with culture...But it's also hilarious because they're not making fun of Indians, Paks, Sri Lankans, etc...They're just laughing at the stereotypes put upon them...It's like me with a mediteranian background watching "my big fat Greek wedding" i can relate and laugh much more with that movie...Because it's not making fun of greeks it's laughing at how crazy they are...You get what i'm saying?? My Indian friend is a proud, punjabi speaking Sikh and he really loves these kind of movies...If he isn't offended i don't see how anyone else is.
