It made me think of something... do 2nd generation desis form a different cultural identity depending on where they are brought up? It seems to me, that most of the "confused" desis I met growing up came from affluent suburbs... or maybe I am making an unfair generalization.
I am very curious why it is getting such praise... because I think it sucked. Bad acting, weak plot, and as Pia said... lots of unanswered questions at the end. I guess it didnt leave me with any closure. All the reviews I read in the papers have been positive, but I know (that atleast in Philadelphia) the reviews were written by non-South Asians... I dont know if that makes a difference. Maybe it was given praise because it gives out the message West-good, East-backwards.
