Far from perfect, but an interesting and worthwhile effort
18 February 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

SANGAM begins with narrations and scenes from the Ganges River in India. Then the film switches venues and you are presented with quite a few scenes of an Indian man walking the streets of New York City. Eventually, he gets on a subway train and is happy to see that an Indian-American is sitting next to him. While the Indian-American is at first reticent to talk, eventually they speak at length about life, jobs and Indian cinema. It's obvious that the Indian man is new to the country and is probably homeless and is definitely jobless. Most of this is rather charming yet sad as the two men talk about India and their lives--one is obviously doing well, the other struggling. Then, rather out of the blue, the film takes a very strange twist--very, very strange. At first, the Indian-American is sympathetic but with this twist, he can't wait to get off the subway and run.

A very odd but interesting script probably won't be to everyone's taste, but it was a decent short.
