Meet The Patels

Freaked out that he’s almost 30 and single, Ravi Patel goes on a family vacation to India with his head and heart spinning. Ravi is desperate to find love and is willing to do whatever it takes. He enlists the help of his legendary matchmaker mother, his life-advice-spouting father, and can’t seem to shake his documentarian sister who follows him around, inserting unhelpful commentary at every whim.  Over the course of a year, Ravi’s parents send him on a whirlwind of dates, a chain of weddings, online matrimonial websites, and the “Patel Matrimonial Convention”. But there is a twist to this story and the only thing in the way of Ravi finding love: is his family... and a little secret. Witty and brutally honest, this comedy explores the questions with which we all struggle: What is love? How do we find it? And most of all, how do we manage to grow up?
