Little India
20 January 2013 | by NotLilySee all my reviews

I saw this short feature online on Sendhil Ramamurthy's website. Sendhil fans on Live Journal is also helpful if you are looking for this. This film tells about one family's difficulty adjusting to America. The family, father , mother and son, move to the suburbs of America from India. Things have not gone as they had hoped, the son hasn't even got a job. Clearly they are all frustrated and depressed. Pailoor quickly gets to the point without rushing the film. He sets up the premise of the family's disappointments without being maudlin or morbid. The family has some trouble adjusting to life in America, but this is not a bitter or depressing film. The ending is realistic but hopeful. Visually a good use of both black and white and color photography, to show feeling and place.
