Around 3-4 years back, a new wave of film making started with films like 'Mitr',
'Bend It Like Beckham', 'American Desi', 'ABCD' etc. coming up in quick
succession. Since the films dealt with the lives of Indians settled overseas and
had a mix of 'desi' and 'videshi' feel to them, they were addressed as, for the
lack of any better term, Crossover films!
'American Blend' belongs to the same category as it tells the tale of an America
based family headed by an Indian. Produced by Krishna Datla, D.Vasant Kumar and
Vishwaas Paandya, 'American Blend' is directed by one film old Varun Khanna who
also pens the screenplay.
