Vikas Adam embodies the mixed feelings of Ashish Patel, the younger brother of Rishi, a character also portrayed by Adam. Ashish, a handsome high school basketball star at his elite school, has been dumped by his college girlfriend. Adam enacts the fading of Ashish's haughty attitude as his mojo is replaced by severe self-questioning that has him ready to accept his parents' challenge of arranged dates. Their choice, Sweetie, is portrayed by Soneela Nankani. Nankani articulates the insecurity of a teen who struggles with her mother's continual comments about her weight but who in other moments knows that she is powerful and talented. Both excellent narrations depict minor characters and reveal cultural elements well. But the focus is the tenderness, vulnerability and self-discovery of the two protagonists. S.W.
