Suffers from a lack of sophistication and polish.

Clubfooted but earnest, Pandya's movie never forgets about its second-gen issues, but never quite plumbs them, either.

Has some amusing moments, most involving the unwinding of the strait- laced Salim. But most of the conflicts it sets up are paper tigers.

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.
