American Desi

  • User


This is a fun-loving romantic comedy reminiscent of the great teen films of the 80's.From Kris, an All-American boy from India, to Ajay, an Afro-Centric Hindu homeboy, to Farah, a devoutly religious but modern Muslim girl, 'American Desi' tells the story of a unique set of characters and their culture from a decidedly hip and youthful point of view.
