8th Annual Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival
Miss India America
dir. Ravi Kapoor, USA, 95 min
Lily Prasad is graduating from her Orange County high school at the top of her class. And she has a plan, “The Lily Plan”: she will become a brain surgeon like her father; her sweet, lost boyfriend Karim will become a petroleum engineer; and they will get married, have kids, and live happily ever after. But the plan is thrown into confusion when Karim becomes smitten by and runs off with Reshma, the reigning Miss India National beauty queen. Not happy about losing at anything, Lily decides that she must become the new Miss India National!
Miss India America explores the concept of ambition and what it means to win through a light comedic style that is accessible to both the South Asian community and wider American audience.
