Reviews
Mine: An interesting story of family. Somehow not as satisfying in the entirety. Still worth seeing.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: American-born Gogol, the son of Indian immigrants, wants to fit in among his fellow New Yorkers, despite his family's unwillingness to let go of their traditional ways.
