A need for a ban on stereotyping
Feb 21, 2004 12:43 AMRead
Mouthshut members maybe aware of my review on ''Bringing down the house'' and why I disagree with using ethnic stereotypes as basis for a script .The movie stirred my curiosity, since I wanted to know how ''People Of Indian Origin'' are perceived by their brethren from the land of their ance...Read More

American Desi Movie
Pathetic in many sense
Nov 19, 2003 12:07 PMRead
The movie might be funny for some but overall it is a pathetic mockery of the Indian culture.Having myself being a TA for 5 years and seen dozens of other FOB TA's (as they are derogatorily referred to by the second generation Indian Amrericans), not once I have seen or heard any stupid inci...Read More

Good movie

After Hyderbad Blues, Bombay Boys this movie had taken the spot. The plot is simple guy meets girl, guy does not know what to do, guy asks freind, guy's freind cause more trouble than help but like all love stories guy gets girl against all odds. But that doesn't make this movie full it is the o...Read More

This is one movie that gives u a glimpse into the mind of ...well.. an american desi. the movies describes the tussle in the mind of indians born & brought up being indian at home but american outside & the best part is it doesn't make it sound like a foolish documentary; in fact its the style o...Read More

Different Angle!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jun 14, 2003 05:36 AMRead
Going through the reviews and comments about the movie, it seems everybody has rated it and viewed it from Indian point of view. I liked the review posted by pavithra where she has given very good background of the movie and her views. In this review, I am not going to repeat what has already be...Read More

Fun for American Desi's
Jun 10, 2003 03:58 AMRead
I think thought that this film was very cute. I watched it with my boyfriend and our friends who aren't Indian and they were laughing and enjoying it the whole way through. They asked me several questions on Indian culture and even though the movie does poke fun at Indian stereotypes, I think it...Read More

This mutant produce of the Indian Entertainment-branch has unfortunately not fulfilled its task to understand life of pakistani and indian people. Projecting them as confused, fragile and stubborn people was not very reasonable. Movies such as Monsoon Wedding or Bend it like Beckham have beautif...Read More

An american born confused desi!!

This movie was a total crack up. I've seen it five times now and still it makes me laugh horrendensly.The composition of this film is well presented. Kris 'with a K' or shall I dare say Krishna is the main actor in this comedy. He is an Indian raised in America who does not like to take inte...Read More

Yo!! Thats the way to go! Following Nagesh Kukunoor's instincts, other Engineer turned Film-makers are jumping into the foray, making movies what would relate closely to their lives, while also making it light on the heart and Sprinkling Lots of Humour to make it an Enjoyable Experience for the ...Read More

Bollywood meets Hollywood
Feb 12, 2003 06:23 PMRead
The typical East meets West topic, but it was extremely humorous. Krishna Gopal Reddy or Kris is a freshman in college and hates spicy Indian food, religious ceremonies and prayers and everything about the Indian culture. He was born into an East Indian family in the United States with deep cult...Read More

The tale of ABCD

Read a lot of reviews castigating ABCDs esp. with the C part.Ppl in india have very strong (mis)conceptions about life abroad and a well-disguised contempt for ppl abroad regards inherent contradictions/complexity in trying to remain Indian+mixing with new cultures. I too was part of the bri...Read More

Not Again

It always starts with a novel idea...Then come the unavoidable followers who make tiny differences in the same and hope it will run too.Thats what American Desi is about. The Director thought - ''Aree baba, what should I add to the script so that Junta likes it...? OK Here's the story flow -...Read More

Stereotypical but Cute
Dec 28, 2002 05:46 AMRead
This movie is hilarious! Some of the scenes are instant classics--the prayer scene, the burka scene, the grocery store scene. You should definitely buy the DVD and watch it over and over. Having said that,the performance of the two lead characters aren't exactly extraordinary. Deep Katdare,as K...Read More

How many times will we repackage the tired old boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, girl falls for boy, Villain (girls' wannabe boyfriend) pissed tries to sabotage the relationship, succeeds first then is beaten by the boy who claims his true love. Its said familiarity breeds contempt but when it...Read More
