I For India Reviews
After 17 years in England, the now esteemed doctor returns to India with his family, but by then, they find that they are better suited to live in England. After 9 months, they return to England to stay.
How upon his arrival in a 1960 Britain that is not the most welcoming of places to foreign nationals he initially struggles with the fitting in to British society, and with the poor state of telecommunications at the time decides to maintain contact with his family in India by purchasing to cine cameras as a means of sending and receiving messages from one another.
You notice how the family slowly gets used to life in the UK whilst constantly feeling the need to return home which is not helped by the large slices of guilt served by his family in their films to the family.
This really is a remarkable story of the immigrant and how they can begin to feel like no place is actually their home, as the family here find out on their return to India.
A lovely little film that shows the power of family in both the positive and negative ways.
