| Original Score: 3/5
Town mouse/country mouse isn't exactly the freshest conceit, but the poignancy of the identity issues and the freshness of the cultural glimpses push this film through the occasional slow and/or stale parts.
| Original Score: C+
Filled with wacky humor and inside jokes that may leave Indian audiences rolling in their seat and average Americans sporting a quizzical look.
| Original Score: 3/4
Assembles all the usual stereotypes in one movie.
An amiable city mouse/country mouse story.
A charming if inconsistent comic essay on assimilation.
| Original Score: B-
This film clearly understands its target audience of first-generation Indian-Americans and has its pleasures to provide.
Mathews has obvious storytelling chops, and a sharp eye for absurdity.
Discretely dismantles caricatures of FOBs with deft send-ups of stock Bollywood leitmotifs.
The filmmakers joke about situations that will surprise those of us unfamiliar with Indian culture and amuse those who are. Much of the remaining material, however, is trite.
| Original Score: 2/4
The story bogs a bit and seems to run long, but any movie that has cricket and high-energy Indian numbers can't be all bad.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Where's the Party, Yaar? is too corny and drawn-out to appeal to crossover audiences but may strike a nerve in Indian communities.
| Original Score: 2/5
Stereotyped characters, lame jokes.
| Original Score: D
