They were trying to set me up with Patel girls in India… Geeta: Thank God, they had given up on me… Ravi: What kind of audience reactions have you been getting from your film festival screenings? The screenings have been sold-out across the world for a year!

You're rooting for Ravi's parents.

You're rooting for love. Ravi's parents could not be more different from my own, but in many ways they are the same. I recognized layers upon layers of my own family's immigrant experience in this film, and I suspect that a lot of this movie's audience will experience similar shades of familiarity and hilarity.Meet the Patels Featurette
