This week, Edward Hong and Josephine Chang guest host with special guest, director Lena Khan of the brand new film starring Danny Pudi, The Tiger Hunter.
Set in the 1970s, The Tiger Hunter is the story of Sami Malik, a young Indian man who travels to America to become an engineer in order to impress his childhood crush and live up to the legacy of his father — a legendary tiger hunter — back home. When Sami's job falls through, he takes a low-end job and joins with a gang of oddball friends in hopes of convincing his childhood sweetheart that he's far more successful than he truly is… or perhaps ever could be.
A timely and topical comedy that captures a young immigrant’s pursuit for success, love, and the American dream with humor and heart, The Tiger Hunter is a charming comedy bolstered by vibrant storytelling and an endearing comic spirit.
