It is easy to dismiss Mitr as a whimsical work. The story of an Indian family
in San Francisco, the movie's target-audience is recklessly specific, meaning
that it leaves a large part of the junta cold. Not many people will identify with
Mitr, which makes the fact that the movie was made at all quite commendable. And
while we are not the kind that stands by non-conformity for its own sake, Mitr
certainly deserves a pat on the back for Daring, as they say, to be Different.
A small pat.
