It's a warm-hearted and very entertaining film.

This highly personal and lighthearted documentary gives some social context but never dives deep on the potentially devastating cultural divide it is exploring.

[A] gently humourous doc.

Ultimately a touching, funny documentary about family and cultural forces putting pressure on a first-generation Indian-American man to do what should come naturally: find love and a life partner.

We enjoy Ravi's search for suitable mates, and we like his family. In the end, they just want each other to be happy - and that's all that matters.

Meet the Patels ends up being much more than a movie about a guy going out on dates. It's about shifting identities, parental expectations and trying to hold on to a life raft of tradition in a swirling sea of change. And it's pretty funny, too.

It's a delight of a film, but it also examines problems of assimilation, culture clash, modern romance and the value (or prison) of tradition. Which is quite a bit of stuff for a movie that's just plain fun to watch.

The Patels' eclectic approach highlights their subject's gentle absurdities.
