Young, handsome and broke Vikram (Ashutosh Gowariker, director of Oscar®-nominated Lagaan) arrives from Mumbai to find his plans for college have completely fallen through. While exploring exotic San Francisco, he falls for Sue (Heidi Carpenter), a feisty bohemian artist. With his visa quickly running out, Vikram resorts to a series of increasingly elaborate – sometimes criminal, and occasionally romantic – schemes to stay in the country. A forgotten classic from the height of the American Independent era, David Rathod's WEST IS WEST will warm your heart and make you laugh out loud!
