We will be watching the new movie, Meet the Patels at Laemmle's Playhouse 7 in Pasadena. The discussion will be led by our very own Harjus Singh, a film student at Chapman University.
NOTE: PLEASE RSVP. Sometimes movie times/dates change and the cinema stops playing the movie and we may have to make last minute changes. This is beyond our control and we apologize in advance! Please RSVP (even if you are just considering to come) so that way we can inform you just in case something happens. THANK YOU!
MEET THE PATELS is a laugh-out-loud real life romantic comedy about Ravi Patel, an almost-30-year-old Indian-American who enters a love triangle between the woman of his dreams ... and his parents. Filmed by Ravi’s sister in what started as a family vacation video, this hilarious and heartbreaking film reveals how love is a family affair.
Fresh out of a breakup with his secret white girlfriend, who his parents knew nothing about, and freaked out that he’s almost 30 and single, Ravi goes on a family vacation to India with his head and heart spinning.
Ravi is willing to do whatever it takes to find love—but there’s one tricky detail to consider: In his family, everyone has the last name Patel. Patels marry other Patels. It’s not incest, it means they are from the same 50-square mile radius in India. Struck with how overwhelmingly happy the marriages are of his Patel family and friends, Ravi enters a fool-proof Patel matchmaking system and embarks on a worldwide search for another American Patel just like him.
