What a refreshing new voice
27 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I highly recommend this film. It is a both endearing and heart-rending portrayal of the relationship gap between the immigrant generations: refreshingly new; at once funny, gritty and real at the same time. It is for the most part perfectly shot, and the acting and directing are all very well executed. This piece manages to capture a deeper understanding of the Indian American experience than many of the other feature films I've seen out there that just try too hard; it manages to immerse you without hitting you over the head. I was very touched by this film and I recommend it for anyone interested in simple human relations. I can't wait to see more of Bhargava's material.
