The movie 'Mississippi Masala' served to glorify the virtues and beauty of South Asian women. However, portrayals such as that cannot negate the effects of racism, sexism and other prejudices they encounter. They must draw on their inner beauty to present an accurate profile of the Asian woman.

Two films with black actors playing key roles serve as departures from the typical stereotyped image of Afro-Americans as mere 'bucks, coons and Toms.' In 'Grand Canyon,' Danny Glover portrays a tow truck operator whose philosophical insights strongly influence the rest of the film's characters. In 'Mississippi Masala,' Denzel Washington tackles the role of a commercial rug cleaner who breaks racial barriers by becoming romantically involved with an East Indian girl.

"A review of Mira Nair's movie Monsoon Wedding. The movie focuses on an Indian father's preparations for his daughter's big wedding. Initially, it offers plenty of farce alongside a mixture of music and dancing, loving handheld shots of riotous street life in New Delhi, and a full illustration of the anguished pretensions of a middle class that is juggling, yet hardly balancing, Indian and Western cultural styles. Its focus changes abruptly when a terrible secret of child abuse within the family is revealed, irretrievably tearing the web of the father's familiar social world and leaving him to decide what part of it to salvage. However, the wedding goes on as it must, ultimately resulting in a genuine comedy with a genuine happy ending." [Art Index]

"Nair's new film feels assured as she turns an affectionately mocking glance on the cultural confusions of contemporary India. Her theme is of established ritual stretching back and cracking under the strain of changing social mores. Throughout the film, the comedy is undercut with a sense of a society in uneasy transition."

The article presents a literary criticism of the novel "The Namesake," by Jhumpa Lahiri, analyzing its references and thematic connections to the short story "The Overcoat," by Nikolai V. Gogol. The shared theme of self-identity formation within the characters as well as the literary works themselves is discussed, highlighting several stylistic similarities between the two.
