STREAM & REViEW: "Meet the Patels"
A DEEP LOOK INTO THE LIFE AN ACTOR LOOKING FOR LOVE, WHO HAPPENS TO BE INDIAN & FUNNY.
RATING: TIME WELL SPENT
PLATFORM: On the Netflix
DIRECTORS: Geeta Patel, Ravi Patel
WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT:
Great use of animation to compliment the story. Simple.
Making me laugh and smile as It revealed answers to the Indian culture I didn't have questions for.
The camera operator and her awesome shots.
Loved seeing the community within the Indian culture and how they roll. Especially with those of the same last name. (The hotel story)
Was waiting for a movie to start until I realized it was a documentary and I wasn't in the best of moods going into this. Both of these factors may have had an effect on my rating. Honesty.
Knowing this guy as an actor Ithoughts of how real this is came to mind.
Know a guy with the last name Patel. Kept on thinking of him throughout the movie wondering what his life is like.
I always wondered why I hardly see Indian girls dating outside their race. Now I know and the teenager in me felt closure over this girl he crushed on and got no love. Scars faded.
