Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Remember the Indian-American artist (one of Krishna's roommates) from American Desi? Well, American Chai uses that same basic character type (Indian-American college student whose parents can't take that he's an artist) as the protagonist. And it has a trailer at apple.com that hit all the right buttons with me. I'll see it right after I see Monsoon Wedding, okay?
Someday Indian-American girls will teach DE-Cal classes about Mississippi Masala, Monsoon Wedding, American Desi, American Chai, and Office Space.
