Fun entertaining short film

+++ May contain spoilers. +++

Mild, barely PG, short comedy about Ravi, the handsome young son of traditional Indian convenience store owners, who likes a sexy classmate. Lucky for him, the very sexy classmate feels the same about him. Creating some difficulty is the fact that Ravi's parents plan to arrange his marriage to the daughter of a traditional Indian family. Ravi is torn between the old ways of his parents and the unrestricted pleasures of American life. The multicultural high-jinks are in spirit of FOOLS RUSH IN. The perky fun tone, and dance ending, are in the spirit of BRING IT ON. Its short. Its cute. It is sexy to boot. THE MISCHIEVOUS RAVI is nothing more than what it attempts to be. THE MISCHIEVOUS RAVI is a very fun flick.
