A very good movie

It was a strong personal experience, it is a very good movie and it is definitely worth a look.

"Original Title: 'The Namesake' Country: Inda Directed by: Mira Nair With: Kal Penn, Jacinda Barrett Plot: American-born Gogol, the son of Indian immigrants, wants to fit in among his fellow New Yorkers, despite his family's unwillingness to let go of their traditional ways. Note: Actually, most of the action take place in the U.S.A. but since it's dealing with immigrants, I still think it fits this list. Anyway, personally, I thought the story was just fascinating.

"Kal Penn should do more films like this. Come on, Kal - "Epic Movie" films or "The Namesake" films, make the right choice."
