    The most affable and endearing of the recent wave of films about Indian immigrants assimilating in the West.
  2. 70
    The comic juice tends to spill out in all directions.
  3. Yaar has enough heart to redeem its cruder moments, and it turns out to be quite a little charmer.

    This breezy comedy deconstructs the struggles of assimilation, satirizing the stereotypical "culture clash" Indian-American identity narrative.
  5. 60
    Clearly understands its target audience of first-generation Indian-Americans and has its pleasures to provide.
  6. 50
    Though harmless and reasonably good-natured, Where's The Party Yaar? ("yaar" translates as "dude") doesn't add many novel touches to its predictable formula, except for a couple of limp nods to Bollywood song-and-dance numbers.

The director made obvious visual references to let the viewer know that he wasn't taking himself seriously. Mathews is one to keep an eye on. How can you not get into the groove of the music and bedazling visuals? I recommend this film to desi's or the desi friendly for a lighhearted watch. It was better than Bend it like Bekham. Expand
