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.

Filled with wacky humor and inside jokes that may leave Indian audiences rolling in their seat and average Americans sporting a quizzical look.

Assembles all the usual stereotypes in one movie.

A charming if inconsistent comic essay on assimilation.

Mathews has obvious storytelling chops, and a sharp eye for absurdity.

Discretely dismantles caricatures of FOBs with deft send-ups of stock Bollywood leitmotifs.
