A Truck Load of Stereotypes
Man, I am watching American Desi for the second time right now and it seems so painful for now (I remember not minding it the first time around). Now, I know of a bunch of people who admire this movie but as of now I am getting really bugged by the plethora of stereotypes in the movie - they have touched on almost everything I could think of - there is the Sardarji with an accent so pronounced that it's not even Indian, the Tamilian with the accent too, the doting mom, the protective aunt, the geeky cousin - I feel bad they have left out the apparently omniscient Bengali :( Anyway need to call home now. More criticism later.
