Comic Kumail Nanjiani and his real-life wife Emily V. Gordon wrote this story from their life experience. He’s a Pakistani Muslim who’s expected to marry one of his own kind, but his relationship with a white girl (Zoe Kazan) causes concern. When she becomes extremely ill, this complicates matters with his family and hers. Considering that Nanjaini & Gordon both write comedy for a living, this film isn’t very funny. Sure, it’s lighthearted and charming, but lacking in laffs. Once the drama kicks in, the pace drags. Sure, it’s a sweet story and well-told, but it lacks that extra spark that would have made it a disarming romantic comedy.
