Engaging, beautifully photographed and ultimately moving drama with strong performances throughout.
What's it all about?
Years pass and the Gangulis' son Gogol (Kal Penn), named after Ashoke's favourite author, grows into a promising architect, married to a rich American girl (Jacinda Barrett). However, Gogol struggles to come to terms with his Bengali heritage, neglecting his parents and even going so far as to hide his given name from his wife and her family.
The cast are superb: Khan and Tabu make a delightful couple that we really care about, while there's strong support from Sahira Nair (as Gogol's equally Americanised sister). However, the real revelation is Kal Penn (Kumar from Harold and Kumar Get The Munchies), who gives a sensitive, multi-layered performance that is extremely engaging.
