Movie Info

A man who moves between two worlds but belongs to neither discovers that in order to find peace he will first have to achieve his own singular identity in this introspective drama from director Sarab S. Neelam. Amrit Singh is a turban-wearing Sikh who lives in North America. Lately Amrit has begun to feel as if his religion and his surroundings are completely at odds. But while this ambitious misfit knows that he possesses the drive to be a success, he must first strike a peaceful balance between Eastern philosophy and Western lifestyle.

  • Overly earnest but engaging.

    May 10, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Ocean, smoothly directed by Sarab S. Neelam, mostly comes down on the side of tradition and, like Amrit, is dutiful and virtuous. And, like him, it's also a bit too well mannered to make a strong impact.

    May 7, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5
  • That Neelam was a medical doctor before becoming a filmmaker gives his picture its exceptional impact and complexity.

    Dec 18, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It sounds heavy-handed, and it is. Although the film looks professional, it feels like a soap opera with a message. High marks for good intentions, but that's about all.

    Aug 21, 2009 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The acting here is surprisingly even and Neelam rarely betrays himself as a newbie behind the camera. For a local indie film, this Ocean is smooth indeed.

  • A provocative, well-acted and moderately heartfelt drama that suffers from lack of bite and boldness while resorting to oversimplifications, facileness and contrivance.

Audience Reviews for Ocean of Pearls

    I found this movie interesting on several levels. 1. I love movies that revolve around medicine and the medical field. 2. I'm fasinated by different religions and cultures and this movie taught me a little bit about the Sikh religion and some of the abuses they endure.
