For Here or to Go? (NR)
The complications are neatly layered, along with a host of cultural issues (food, gay rights, Indian regional rifts, love of country, love of family) and movie tropes (a love story, a buddy road trip, even a Bollywood-style dancing flash mob). It's too often clear that the actors and their dialogue are in service of the points this film is making. Two in particular: that the United States has a serious immigration logistics problem and that, for some ambitious Indian tech entrepreneurs, there's no place like home.
Still, especially for anyone tired of the supremacy of Silicon Valley or America's immigration mess, it's enjoyable spending some time with dreamy Vivek and Shveta (Melanie Kannokada, also known as Melanie Chandra), who are lovely together despite their clumsy communication. Side characters provide comedic relief, coincidences abound and Vivek, finally, answers the question of where he thinks he belongs.
