"Mississippi Masala"

We saw this 1992 film last night.  It was completely appealing.  It's really early Denzel, and a familiar portrait of a small southern town.  In my hometown almost every motel is owned by a family by the last name of Patel, and that is almost the norm, different names, across the small town south.  Koreans have city center delis, Chinese have the take-out food joints, and Indians have the motels...

The film is entertaining despite having some awkward dialogue and a few cliched moments.  Denzel is already charming.  The featured actress Sarita Choudhury is compelling.
