Happy week before 4th of July!!!!! I may or may not have all day Friday off. My work schedule is unclear. Anyway, I’ll definitely have a half day and can do a watchalong, which is what matters.
Here is where you get to bring up anything you want to ask me about! News story you are curious about, movie you just watched, wondering why I don’t do TGIF any more, anything at all! Just keep swinging back to this post all week as you think of new questions.
Now, question for you! In honor of if being 4th of July week, what is your favorite American set Indian film?
I should say Dhoom 3, because it made Chicago look breathtaking, but I think I’m gonna stick with Kal Ho Na Ho. It captured this particular moment in time of the American desi community, when the balance between assimilation and heritage was perfect, when you could be friends across class and language barriers with your fellow desis, when America was your home and there was no need to convince yourself India was better.
