Amreekandesi: Masters of AmericaAkhil Arora, a young, dorky engineer in Delhi, can’t wait to get away
from home and prove to his folks that he can be on his own. Meanwhile in a small town
in Punjab, Jaspreet Singh, aka Jassi, is busy dreaming of a life straight out of American
Pie. As fate would have it, they end up as roommates in Florida. But the two boys are
poles apart in their perspectives and expectations of America. While Akhil is fiercely
patriotic and hopes to come back to India in a few years, Jassi finds his Indian identity an
uncomfortable burden and looks forward to finding an American girl with whom he can
live happily ever after.
Laced with funny anecdotes and witty insights, Amreekandesi chronicles the quintessential
immigrant experience, highlighting the clash of cultures, the search for identity, and the
quest for survival in a foreign land.
