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

Hari: Mohan, I could use a comb. I'm going to keep the comb.
Mo: Want anything else? How about uh, how about some deodorant?
Hari: Deodorant? I don't smell, do I? I use powder everyday!
Mo: No no! That's good man! But deodorant, see look, it makes you feel fresh, light, and clean!
Hari: I tried it once; it tickled me very much!
Mo: But you should use it man... The ladies will love it.

FOBS (Fresh Off the BoatS) Being Accepted By Americanized Foreigners
1 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought that this movie was fairly funny. However, if you are not open minded and do not find Indian accents funny, then do not watch this movie. This movie is about a guy (Hari) that is straight from India (thick accent, nerdy clothes, tennis shoes, and uses baby powder for deodorant) who is trying to fit in with other Americanized Indians and others. The stereotyping in this movie is hilarious, it's just good olé racial funnies that I can relate to since I'm of a different origin myself. This movie is nothing like Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle, however it does have some stoner composed scenes, as a matter of fact there's only one scene where weed is even in the movie. Also, this movie is very low budget so it is not the best of movies, but in my opinion it is the humor that makes this movie. If you do watch this movie, Hari's friend is the funniest one in this movie, so if you do not think that he is funny, you might want to turn off this movie. He's the one with the longest name in Indian history.
