Aziz Ansari's character's name is Dev Shah and yet he is shown speaking Tamil in the childhood shots. It is not entirely out of the realm of the possible for a 'Shah' to live in Tamil Nadu but it is a stretch that they would talk Tamil at home and address their grandfather as 'Thatha'. People with the surname Shah are usually from Gujarat and speak Gujarati. See more »
You see The Social Network? Max Minghella plays an Indian guy. He's white. They browned him up.
No no, I read he's one-sixteenth Indian.
Who cares? If you go back far enough we're all one-sixteenth something. I'm probably one-sixteenth black. You think they're gonna let me play Blade?

While a huge fan of Aziz, the first episode left me unsure of what to think of the show. I perceived from the trailers and marketing that it was a hilarious comedy, which it is, but at the same time explores deep subject matter, while never getting too serious. I absolutely loved this series and watched it within almost 48 hours. Every single character is absolutely hilarious and perfect for this show. The blend of comedy and drama that makes you question your own thoughts and path in life is definitely inspiring and left me with a pain in my side from the laughter. This show will stick with me for a long time and I will revisit many more times.
