MEET THE PATELS is a laugh-out-loud real life romantic comedy about Ravi Patel, an almost-30- year-old Indian-American man who enters a love triangle between the woman of his dreams … and his family. Filmed by Ravi’s older sister, in what started as a family vacation video, this hilarious and often heartbreaking film is a tribute to the aches, the sacrifices, and the overwhelming awesomeness that comes with being in love. In this case, love is a family affair. Directed by siblings Ravi Patel and Geeta Patel, MEET THE PATELS had a sold-out world premiere at Hot Docs and won an Audience Award. Fresh out of a break-up and freaked out that he’s almost 30 and single, Ravi Patel goes on a family vacation to India with his head spinning. Ravi is desperate to find love and is willing to do whatever it takes. Ravi turns to his parents for help they send him on a whirlwind of dates around the country through an Indian matchmaking system called Biodating. You see, Patels marry Patels, and this is the system that’s used all over the world to help people do it. What Ravi has not told his parents is that he just got out of a two-year relationship with a “white girl.” Now the only thing between Ravi and his perfect Indian wife is a redhead from Connecticut named Audrey. Meet the Patels speaks to anyone who wants love, is in love, or wants to hold on to the love they have.
