This is a very incredible and amazing film. I love how it goes through India tradition with arranged marriages to moving and getting used to living in America to having children and watching them try to cope with trying to stay to tradition and not. This movie was so well done and it's one that will stay in your heart forever.

This was the best movie I've seen in a long time. A very touching story of an immigrant family across the miles and generations! This movie completely took me away - completely captured my attention and held it throughout the entire film. I have gone to PBS to order the book after just having seen the movie.
