Review
Gogol is a very strange name and somewhat of an embarrassment, as are his parents with their strange sub-continental ways, to a first generation Bengali American, but it is a name that will have relevance to his struggle to forge a personal identity. This charming film spans over three decades from the first fumbles of a successful arranged middle-class Calcutta marriage, through pain and gain, to a slow integration into an American immigrant identity. Not quite an epic, but a heart-warming tale of family history.
