Movie Info

Set against the backdrop of the 2008 recession, For Here or To Go? is a comedy drama about the many personal battles faced by immigrants living in America. Young Silicon Valley software professional Vivek Pandit is poised to become a key hire at a promising healthcare startup, but when they realize his work visa has less than a year remaining, the offer disappears. Having learned the hard way about the flaws in his "it's just paperwork" mentality, Vivek battles forces beyond his control to get his visa extended, whether at his existing company or a new job. Just as the prospect of returning home to India starts to look tempting, Vivek meets a girl worth the fight to keep the life he has built in America. Along the way, his eyes are opened to the similar struggles of his own roommates - other immigrants equally seen as "temporary workers" in the United States, who drive nice cars but avoid investing in furniture for fear of having to leave it all behind. American in mind and Indian at heart, this is a contemporary story of ambition and ambivalence fueled by one's immigration status that characterizes the dilemma of modern cultural displacement

  • The subject matter's topicality doesn't provide sufficient compensation for the many dull patches in Rucha Humnabadkar's comedy/drama about a young Indian immigrant struggling to get his work visa extended.

  • There's nothing new about immigrants to America making compromises in their new country, but in the comic drama For Here or to Go?, the story gets a chai-infused, Silicon Valley-mired twist.

    Mar 31, 2017 | Full Review…
  • In attempting to address its many concerns, the film's agreeable, lightly satirical tone gives way to increasingly didactic dialogue and a stalling pace.

  • [It] bites off more than it can chew...it is sometimes clunky and heavy-handed as it switches tones...The acting is all over the map and there's even a Bollywood-style dance number...Still...the subject matter is topical and the focus is fresh.

    Mar 30, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Bhilawadikar's too-busy script nevertheless scores legitimate points ...

  • "For Here or to Go?" offers an insightful group portrait but lacks imagination in a romantic subplot and (except for a requisite Bollywood-style dance number) is visually dreary.
