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.
Assembles all the usual stereotypes in one movie.
An amiable city mouse/country mouse story.
A charming if inconsistent comic essay on assimilation.
This film clearly understands its target audience of first-generation Indian-Americans and has its pleasures to provide.
Where's the Party, Yaar? is too corny and drawn-out to appeal to crossover audiences but may strike a nerve in Indian communities.
Filled with wacky humor and inside jokes that may leave Indian audiences rolling in their seat and average Americans sporting a quizzical look.
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.
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.
Stereotyped characters, lame jokes.
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 movie begins in India, with an aspiring Indian student who dreams of making it big in America. But when he finally enters the USA he begins to realize his cousin is ashamed to have a cousin who's from India.
Anyone who's been an immigrant can identify with that "stranger in a strange land" feeling. It captures the tensions between the assimilated and the newly arrived very well (as well as between the hip and the un-cool). The stereotyping in this movie is hilarious, it's just good olé racial funnies that I can relate to. Light hearted comedy not to be taken seriously.
