Sherat Raju takes a simple story about a roadside breakdown and turns it into an emotionally charged voyage challenging the main character's core beliefs. Anant is a sympathetic, though naive, immigrant Sikh father who believes in the American dream; through his son Rajit, his eyes are opened to some of the prejudices of American society. The film uses humor and interpersonal conflict to build to a powerful moment between father and son at the film's end. Anant's wife and older son are used well to counter balance the conflict between Anant and Rajit, and to increase the tension of the conflict at key moments. It's an economical piece of film-making that packs a powerful punch. Well worth watching.
