An excellent movie about the struggles of Indian kid growing up with interest outside of the culture's norm...This movie has some great memorable moments, like the cut to song/dance routines, hilarious "rational" explanations by Aasif Mandvi, and that gangster Raju...Definitely worth watching by everyone...

Cool, captures tension and hybridity of being second generation in US

Cute, but pretty predictable story of children of immigrants struggling with their parents' expectations. The main character is really a talented singer/songwriter though.

Proof that it does not matter where you come from, your parents still have a set of plans for you that are ot exactly what you want

Impassioned movie from the heart of Indian-Americans. I felt those moments of discovery watching "American Chai" like I did when I first say 'Say Anything' and 'Brothers Mc Mullen'. A wonderful film with funny satires of Bollywood.

Along the same lines, this is one of the first first-generation movies I saw and they actually carried at Blockbuster.
