American Desi is not a radical new brand of cinema. It just tells a straight story of reconciling with one's identity in a simple and at times naive and predictable manner.

An entertaining breakthrough film that puts Indian faces on the screen.
March 30, 2001
Suffers from a lack of sophistication and polish.
March 16, 2001
The script is often obvious and much of the acting is amateurish.

The main flaw ... is its willingness to sacrifice the intrinsic fascination of its subject, and the charm of its talented cast on the altar of cultural correctness.
March 15, 2001
Clubfooted but earnest, Pandya's movie never forgets about its second-gen issues, but never quite plumbs them, either.
March 15, 2001
Has some amusing moments, most involving the unwinding of the strait- laced Salim. But most of the conflicts it sets up are paper tigers.

At times the movie plays out like a silly sitcom, but with the realistic and witty writing lightly poking fun at tradition, Desi's cute story can't help but shine through.
March 15, 2001
Leaves you squirming more than dancing.
March 15, 2001
even when the plot doesn't always satisfy, the movie's general demeanor and tone is humorously rewarding
