The film is a satire on the fascination, nay, obsession of the Patels - a Gujarati farmer community - of migrating to the USA. Over the last half a century lakhs of Patels have migrated to the USA and have come to dominate its Motel industry by dint of hard-work and persistence. The story revolves around one of such Patel family and its uncounted tries to immigrate to States. Written by
A fiasco, of course not in terms of box-office collections, but as a film. The "wannabe Bollywood film" is an arsenal of over acting, amateur direction, bad casting, extremely melodramatic dialogues and over emphasis on the quintessential Gujarati accent as an attempt that ended up slogging hard to promote comedy, by a bunch of dabblers.
In a substantial part of the film, dialogues are unnecessarily and literally shouted out and not spoken. Leaving all this aside, I appreciate the attempt of creating the first "so called" urban Gujarati movie, even though it sounds oxymoron. The music was probably the only component that did not disappoint me as much. But I'm sure the film's massive financial success (thanks to the stereotypes) will provoke many more urban Gujarati films to follow, including those that may hopefully do well in all aspects.
