A REALISTIC portrayal of the struggles that first generation South Asians have to deal with
8 January 2006 | by ponderer1982See all my reviews

I think the one or two reviewers who have given this movie an unfavorable review fail to realize that this movie was a SATIRE. Those educated in literature can spot the parallel to "West Side Story" in this movie. It deals with the very real struggles that first generation South Asians who were born and raised in western countries have to deal with. It exposes the REALITIES of how the older generations try to force old traditions on the younger generations and expect them to abide by them even when they can not even identify with them. It shows a real situation that many have to deal with, many South Asian parents force their children to choose between how the parents expect them to live their lives, or be true to themselves, and often times if they don't choose to live their lives how the parents expect them to live, then they disown their children. It sends a message to the parents, that if they weren't so stubborn and set in their old sense of thinking and traditions, then their children would still be in their lives and wouldn't be forced to take such extreme measures just to have a happy life.
