A half-white, half-Pakistani actor searches for his own identity while attempting to save his parents' marriage and awaiting his Caucasian girlfriend's response to his own recent marriage proposal. Returning to his home one night, American-born Ray Rehman discovers his Pakistani father waiting on his doorstep. Thrown out by his Caucasian wife, Ray's father needs a place to stay. But his timing couldn't be worse, because Ray just proposed to his white girlfriend, who doesn't seem able to make a commitment. Later, when Ray meets a South Asian girl of mixed descent, he begins to question where his true identity lies.

Audience Reviews for Shades of Ray

I just can't get enough of Zach Levi. His performance in this was wonderful. He tackles it with that down to earth charm that has really been the cornerstone of all his characters, especially that of Chuck. In this film he plays a Paki who is a "mutt". He tries to embrace his "white side" because it is easier. He goes for the traditional white girl to marry and it isn't until his fiance (whom hasn't given an answer if she will marry him) goes on holiday with her family that his father shows up. His father married a white woman but won't hear of that from his son. Apparently he's a "do as I say not as i do" type of individual and demands his son marry a Paki woman. From there he actually gets forced into meeting a girl who is a lot like himself and it isn't long before he starts to get a better feeling for who he is and what he wants out of life. It's a sweet and often funny at times movies. Anyone that is a fan of Zach should definitely watch this.
