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 »

Great Movie
13 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In response to the previous comment, sorry about your cousin and all but the movie was great. Do not compare two things that unrelated. The movie has nothing to do with hate crimes and is not a vicious attack on Indians. The FOB jokes and stereotypical Indian jokes can get old but the movie still provided laughs and that was the whole point behind it. If we cannot laugh at ourselves once in a while then what's the point. The jokes and theme to the movie were right on. It wasn't going for an Oscar or critical acclaim it was a simple movie made to entertain. As a Guju myself i loved all the jokes because they are things we all have seen or done at one point or another and if you sit there denying it then you're only kidding yourself.

So please, personal issues of hate crimes and such and such should be left out of reviews. People need to stop putting such movies under microscopes and ripping them apart. They are for fun and to make you laugh. So stop making politics out of it. I'm proud of who I am and what i stand for so who cares what others think. Take a minute to laugh once in a while instead of worrying about stereotypes.
