Review of The Big Sick

It's a movie about an interracial romance between a Pakistani boy and a white American girl, living in Chicago. It's a nice date movie, especially if you are a Desi dating a white chic.

The movie is good. The story is quite simple and straightforward. The paki guy is torn between his traditional family requirements and his love interest. Family wants him to get arranged marriage to paki babe. So he breaks up with white girl. But she has a near death experience, which brings him closer to the girls family. Its all happy happy ending.

There are some good dialogues. For example:

Girls dad: What are your views on 9/11?
Boy: 9/11 was a tragedy.. a big tragedy... we lost 19 of our best men.

Overall, i would say it's worth a watch....if not on screen, then definitely on Netflix.

So he breaks up with white girl. But she has a near death experience, which brings him closer to the girls family. Its all happy happy ending.

kaun kiske saath break up kiya, kiska near death (white girl or Pakistani babe?) experience, kaun kiske family (white girl or Pakistani babe?) ke close aya and happy ending kiska - as in does someone kill him or he kills someone/family?

is the pakistani boy in pakistan and white girl in chicago? if so how does the romance start? is it like he sends emails asking to transfer 100million dollars because he is the prince of a province in Pakistan?

Re: Review of The Big Sick

“Monsoon wedding” ke baad,…. Theek uus jaise hi, ek-dau,.. NRI logon ke vaaste, baarati- shaadi waale ( foreign shaadis of desi-videsi in West )
kuchh Movies aaye the,…. – Titles yaad nahin hai,… lekin more or less “ Monsoon Wedding “ jaise hi the,….


Not American Desi or American Chai - but similar ones and dealing with mainly 'desi-videsi shaadi' in West,...


Does anyone know any such available on Netflix, at present ?
Pl. recommend. Thx.

You might like The hundred-foot journey and The other end of the line. Hundred-foot is not on Netflix. Other end is.

What the fuck........ It's fucking horrible movie. They are using stereo typical situations to create some humor but can't decide if to make a comedy movie or a drama.......... And main lead Kumail ........ He looks like a do'g ass. I cannot understand how can anyone fall in love with that guy...... He is also not funny and not a great actor........ He sucks big time......

Ray Romano is wasted talent....... Holly Hunter is brilliant........ Anpam Kher just throws some dialogues in Indian accent.
Rest of the movie is put you in coma.........

I also got my money back........

No one cares about sex scenes . After having sex for so many years, I don't have interest in watching . If I want to watch pretty girls tits I just go to Vegas and watch real thing.

But I stand by my review . This is a horrible movie. Previews are more enjoyable then movie.

Better watch previews........
