Gogol wants to fit in among his New Yorker friends despite his willingness to let go of their traditional ways. His sister Sonia did her own thing.

They endured college, snobbery work, culture issues, they meet potential partners, marriage divas and experience sadness and joyfulness.
Gogol begin to see the link between the world his parent left behind and the new world that lies in from of him. The way that the movie relates to religion is that of the Hindu belief there associated with multiplicity gods and does not devote the worship of one particular deity. There spiritual practices is prescribed to as a person that should be able to correspond to his or hers competence and that a person should have the freedom to choose of invent a form of Brahman that satisfies his or her craving send to make it the objects of their worship the Hindu enjoy freedom of worshiping their personally chosen icon is to offer their pray to the indefinable Brahman.
