This film explores the depths of what, on the surface, seems to be a picture-perfect family of Indians in America.

Even though it does have a cliche of misunderstanding and the sort underdog vs bully, the way they are executed is actually pretty well. Because, unlike most movies that have cliche's like that which have the characters do nothing mope in a misunderstanding cliche (a lot of romance films were pretty guilty on this, especially the american ones) and in underdog vs bully cliche, they'd have a character trying to prove itself, then prevent and brought back on the bottom by a bully and then trying to convince other characters in stuff. Here, the characters are actually doing something after having a misunderstanding and Ali, the main character, handles the film's bully character Nikki pretty well. She doesn't react like a scared little underdog who's dreaming of more and trying to make her dream come true. She just handles stuff the way she thinks is best and is always helping the others out.Now that is what this movie should be given credit for, handeling the cliche's in away that wasn't seen so often.And this is also one of the better recent musicals, because it feels like an actual musical vs what most nowadays musicals have as songs, which is musicalized dialogues (Frozen and Into the Woods are guilty on this one).Also, some of the dance scenes reminded me of 2002 musical, Chicago.So yes, great music, great singing, dance and acting performance and greatly executed cliches. And the song "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me" certainly deserved the Golden Globe award it got.I say it's worth it, and give it a watch for yourself.

Vivienne O (us) wrote: Interesting idea but the execution didn't quite fulfil its promise. The performances put in by the younger cast were quite weak as well.
Michael S (br) wrote: Tyrin Turner couldn't act his role well, but everybody else did very well. That was one of the downfalls of this movie. Another one was the lack of character development and the use of a narrator. Boyz N The Hood was a lot better as far as depth. The best part about this movie is the character O Dogg. He was authentic and also the gun shots and depiction of the dead/dying characters. I took two stars away because of Tyrin Turner's acting flaw and lack of character development.

Alexander R (jp) wrote: One of the weirdest comedies around, but had to get the DVD from Germany (German subtitles only) because the movie doesn't appear to exist in England. But if you either understand Japanese or can read German, you don't want to miss this.
Curtis H (ca) wrote: Shirley Temple, adorable as ever in this film about British military occupation in India. Very thick stuff for Temple, but she carries it off and charms the whole lot of stuffy but big hearted British soldiers, as well as Indian rebels (led by the ever popular Cesar Romero).

Garrett C (kr) wrote: A much better version of what Allen was trying to do with Crimes and Misdemeanors. It's a nihilistic atheist's response to Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment," and as well thought out as Allen's film is, Dostoevsky definitely still wins this debate to me artistically and philosophically.
