Someone who commented before me wrote that this is a student film. That is very hard to believe because of the professional style camera and whatnot. Regardless, it is a very nicely done short. Great acting from all of the cast. Although the setting does not change and it is not faced paced, it keeps you engaged. While it is comedic, it isn't a feel good, everything is alright movie. It displays things the way they really are, rather than film usually portrays it. If anything it will dispel the hidden sentiments, feelings and opinions many have of minorities. Of course everyone will deny it, but the media and the American majority view and portray people of different descent such as Indians and Middle Easterners as faceless, expendable, unimportant people, who simply exist for the source of humor based on stereotypes, or to serve as villains. In this short Anant (the father of the family) is an Indian man who wears a turban and is very pro-America. That's something the media usually will not show, for that is not what people want to see. People only like to see what re-affirms their beliefs and prejudices. This short may open their minds. Everyone should see this.
