Hello Everybody

Recently, I watched this movie and I really loved it for its theme. I don’t know Kannada but, if you know tamil you will manage to understand this movie. What I really like in this movie is its theme….The story is very simple but the background of the story is really good. This movie clearly shows the life style of the Indians living in U.S.  It shows how people change after experiencing luxurious life style in U.S., It shows their change in behaviour, attitude and culture. This movie was taken in  1995 but, all the events shown in this movie is happening even now.  People settled in U.S.A will definitely be able to relate this movie atleast in one scene. This movie won national award for the best regional fim.


The movie is about three friends: Soorya (played by Ramesh Aravind), Shashank (Akshay Anand) and Bhoomi (Hema). After finishing their undergraduate studies, Shashank goes to the US for further studies. Soorya starts his business in his India. Bhoomi marries Shashank and they both settle in U.S.A.  The rest of the story shows how the relationship between these three people change over a period of time.

As I said, they have shown the Indian-American life style only in background and the main story swiftly moves using that theme. After seeing this movie you will know what are the compromises that people make in order to earn money and posh life style in U.S.A.  Ramesh Arvind has shown emotions naturally, he has out performed the other actors.  Watch it and you will know the other side of the Indians living in U.S.A.

  1. Hey

    I watched the movie America America. I dont think it depicts NRIS properly. I live in Canada , I was born here, and im a teenager growing up here. I actually am a proud person to be indian. I do know how to speak kannada at home. In America America the movie shows indo americans hating on their on country , langauge, custom and traditions. Thois is not true. Us indo canadians and americans lover over indian culture. Many punjabis, tamils, and gujratirs rised in america and however there is a little less population of kannadigas in canada atleast. But we all now how to speak our language, my freinds growing up here also know how to. We celebrate our festivals and eat indian food at home all the time. We love india ! and do not ciritsize it. Ofsoure we try to adapt best of both cultures and we sujjest somethings that india could learn from the west such as organization, and suggest west learn something about indian culture.Ofcourse there are some indians in northa america who hate to say they are indians. But hey there are bad apples everywhere. Majority of us are proud to say we are indian. So america america really shows that indo americans are egoistics and hate india which is sooo wrong. We do face issuses like cultural differance but we respect all culture.s This is movie isnt great and depicts America in a negative way.
