Film – The Namesake (2006)

Directed by Mira Nair
After moving from Calcutta to New York, the Ganguli family maintains a delicate balancing act between honoring the traditions of India and blending into American culture. Parents Ashoke (Irrfan Khan) and Ashima (Tabu) long for the family and culture they left in India, but they are proud of the opportunities their sacrifices have given their children. Their son Gogol (Kal Penn) strives to forge his own identity without forgetting his heritage.
