Meet the Patels

A sweet and funny documentary centered on Ravi, a first-generation Indian American man who is 30 years old and still not married. His parents, whose marriage was arranged by their parents, try to help Ravi find a girl and get married. I really enjoyed the film. The concept is very simple – his sister uses a home recording device to document conversations with their parents, blind dates, speed dating conferences, and other settings on the way to finding the love of his life. Through the dialog, there is a lot to take away from the movie about generational differences in general and differences between immigrants and their children in particular and about love and dating in contemporary life. Big thumbs up for a very charming movie from a guy who is not afraid to poke fun at himself and also discovers a lot about himself through the course of finding love. (2015; 4 stars)
