The Namesake

release date Nov '06

what's the story

The Namesake is the story of the Ganguli family, whose move from Calcutta to New York evokes a lifelong balancing act to meld to a new world without forgetting the old. Though parents Ashoke and Ashima long for the family and culture that enveloped them in India, they take great pride in the opportunities their sacrifices have afforded their children.

Paradoxically, their son Gogol (Kal Penn) is torn between finding his own unique identity without losing his heritage. Mira Nair directs, her first film since 2004's "VANITY FAIR."
