This movie came out shortly before the movie "greencard", starring Gerarde Depardu. The both of them sharing hte same plot, yet director David Rathod was the first with the idea. Wanting to direct, produce, and edit his first full length film, Rathod found the money to make it happend, by asking friend and artist Huey Lewis to help him out.
The movie stars Ashutoh Gowariker as Vikram, a high school graduate come to America for a good college education. As soon as he steps foot in America, his Visa is shortend from 6 months to one. Putting that aside, he scouts out for his sponors home. Finding that they had left, and were not returning in the near future, he is forced to fend for himself in Downtown San Franciso. He soon finds a job, and a friend, Sue, a bohemian girl who is not as easy to be friends with as he hoped, and the time on his visa is running out. The movie is set as a romantic comedy, when it would be more towards a drama. Yes, tehre are funny parts, but alot of it is serious. Overall, Rathod does a good job in showing us the toils of coming to America. The music complementst the movie, a perfect soundtrack done by Sheila Chandra and Jai Uttal. I would recomend seeing this, it is worth the price. Final note, see if you can find comedian Gregory Proops within the movie.
