Loins of Punjab Presents - Notepad

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

Realistic characters and settings in a not-so-real story. Great subtle humor yet a punch is lacking.

Plot Summary

A corporation based in the US announces a reality talent competition in New York. All the typical Indian characters who find themselves residing in the US, show up to compete.

What Worked

  • Lighting of the scene in which Sania Rahmani receives the bad news.
  • The camerawork of the scene in which Sania Rahmani is in the toilet.
  • The dig on how easily national pride is evoked.
  • Balloons from the ceiling were red, white and blue. What a brilliant dig on double standards? Shower of American colors at the finale of an Indian event.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • How come there was no co-ordination between the singers and the musicians beforehand?
  • Why does Opama quit? And why does she come back?
  • Why are Sania and Vikram attracted to each other?
