‘The Big Sick’ film review: Kumail Nanjiani’s real-life romance makes for a heartwarming romcom

Not only political time, because actor Anupam Kher Great sick would agree, but the time when the parties have to be taken and drawn battle lines.

These parts also exist in The Big Sick by Michael Showalter. On the one hand, there are immigrant parents from South Asia who want nothing more than their Americanized children to indulge in the most stubborn desi tradition there – to marry the partners chosen by them.

On the other hand, you have the quintessential American dream saying that you can pursue your passion, even if it is a comedy with little money, and find love in the cultural melting pot.

Kumail Nanjiani, the famous Silicon Valley plays a fictional version of himself trapped in the middle, unable to choose a side.

In Chicago, Pakistani-American actress Kumail meets Emily, an aspiring therapist played with awkward charm Zoe Kazan after a bad one-night stand.

Fleeing and helping along the way are Emily’s parents, easily played by Ray Romano and Holly Hunter.

You would be forgiven for thinking that the plot resembles an ongoing John Green novel, but it is actually a real-life story between Kumail Nanjiani and his wife, Emily Gordon.

Written by the couple, the film is not only a sensitive adaptation of what must be a painful experience, but it is also a story treated with great empathy for all the characters.

None of them is that stereotypes, especially Anupam Kher and Zenobia Shroff play the melodramatic, but ultimately forgive the Kumail parents and have the screen time at least.

Her bad acting claim every time a woman cleaning properly shows the family dinner, a scene very repeated in the film, is particularly fantastic.

One of the pleasures of seeing the big sick is to witness the unexplored territory of a brown man who works with the parents of his American girlfriend.

Ray Romano plays the clumsy father, an idiot is not as sharp as his beautiful wife played by Holly Hunter. He strives to explain what afflicts his daughter, and she strives to be kind to the man who broke the heart of her daughter.

Together they will ignore Kumail’s friendship with him, left him in his own vault of embarrassing secrets and embarrassing family photographs.

It is especially nice to see Nanjiani interpret a story, torn between her love and her parents, as Romano popularized with the comedy “Everybody All Heart Wants Raymond.

Both are of regular sized boy whose arms hang awkwardly unnoticed and on their sides, and speak with a nasal twil and a gentle rhythm.

And they are both trusted comics that can infuse even the smallest scenes with the biggest laughs.

In the center of the great sick is, of course, the novel begins interracial charmantement, loses balance and is redeemed.
