The Bong Connection (2006)
Two young men find themselves dealing with the ins and outs of Bengali culture on different sides of the globe in this comedy-drama from Indian filmmaker Anjan Dutt. Apu (Parambrata Chatterjee) is a successful computer technician who is looking for greater career opportunities, and decides to leave his home to move to Texas. Apu's family is nonplussed, and his girlfriend Sheela (Raima Sen) makes his clear she has no interest in joining him, so he flies to America to start a new life on his own. Apu has trouble adapting to life on and off the job in Houston, his new romance with Rita (Peeya Rai Chowdhary), the daughter of a wealthy expatriate family, runs into more than a few rough patches, and Hasan (Shauvik Kundagrami), Apu's new best friend, seems to be having even more trouble adjusting to American life than he is. Meanwhile, Andy (Shayan Munshi), a musician of Indian descent who was born and raised in New York City, comes to India for the first time to visit his grandfather. While Andy imagined he knew what India would be like, his assumptions go out the window once he arrives, and his downtown sense of cool begins to fail him when he falls for a beautiful woman he meets in Kolkata -- Sheela. The Bong Connection was screened in competition at the 2006 Dubai Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi … More
