It looked like no one had fun making this, I had even less fun watching.
29 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I had high hopes since the main actors in this are known for being fine comedic talents. Danny Pudi, Rizwan Manji, Parvesh Cheena and of course Jon Heder. I thought, wrongly, that this would be a comedy. I think the new writer/director Lena Khan along with the other writer and seasoned pro Sameer Asad Gardezi were trying for a dramedy, but unfortunately it is not dramatic in the sense of telling a compelling story, and the comedy (I'm being kind calling it that) was reliant on the quirky Rizwan Manji's character - where the quirkiness is supposed to be funny

  • but is really just quirky. They try to cram too many things into 90
minutes and the result is nothing works because we have no connection to the different episodes of the story. We have one part flashback which doesn't have any real connection to the story in the present (the '70s), and which takes away a large chunk of time; we have another story about love, which is not really given much time to allow us to know what these characters are like or why they like each other; there is another story about a drama at the workplace which is not only deadly dull but entirely predictable; there is another story about a dumb quirk of Rizwan Manji which is supposed to offer some comic relief but is dumb and not funny; there is another story having to do with following your dreams rather than suffering through family expectations to be happy - but it comes across as sappy maybe because it is not given enough time to explore those characters. Watching these talented actors slog through the unfunny dull script which tries to rely on unearned sentimentalism (too much going on to have time to go into anything beyond a fleeting caricature) was tedious and boring. It was also uninteresting as far as stories go in the first place. I mean with all the stories you can tell about immigrants from India - why waste so much talent and energy with such a sappy and dull concept? Maybe it is based on a true story, I don't know, but being true doesn't mean interesting to watch. India and Indian immigrants are a potential goldmine for film, especially comedy since Indian culture clashes with the rest of the world in an innately funny way so often. The vast and wide variety of cultures and stories that can come from India and from Indians for drama as well, or any other genre makes India a great source for new stories. But this was not that. There is nothing in this script or on the screen that needed to be made, especially in light of such a vast potential at hand.
