Meet The Patels
Ravi Patel, an almost-30-year-old Indian-American enters a love triangle between the woman of his dreams ... and his parents. Fresh out of a break-up and struck by how happy the marriages within his community are, Ravi enlists the help of his parents to find an American Patel just like him. From showing up at dates around America, attending weddings, and perusing matrimonial websites, to visiting the “Patel Matrimonial Convention;" Ravi does it all. Witty and brutally honest, this hilarious documentary explores the questions with which we all struggle: What is love? How do we find it? And even then, how do we keep it?
