Meet the Patels

Description
The documentary offers a sharp, often riotously funny take on the conflicts and compromises that all culturally nebulous families must navigate. It follows Ravi Patel, an almost-30-year-old Indian-American as he enters a love triangle between the woman of his dreams... and his parents.

Rather than taking a firm position for or against arranged marriages, "Meet the Patels" is a big-hearted, poignant and truly funny documentary that shows people will try anything to find love - and sometimes "anything" works.

How is dating in India different from dating in America? Indian culture is roughly 11,000 years old; ours-239 years. Dating is hilariously, eye-openingly different in India.

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

[Patel's parents] are the real personalities of the movie, so good-humored and spirited, and so wonderful in sticking to their old-fashioned view of family life.

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.
