bittersweet, with a twist
15 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A modest little film about two Indians in America, one whose family immigrated when he was a small child, the other only two weeks in the US. The first has only vague memories and his mother's stories about his former homeland; they are dreams of a place where you can bathe in the holy rivers. The other has only vague notions of the freedoms that are possible in America; he attempts to escape the oppression of home in the "land of the free". A chance meeting on the New York subway connects them, with talk of film songs and favorite foods. The surprise twist and conflict towards the end forces both men to quietly contemplate where they are and where they have been.
