Shades of Ray starring Zachary Levi and Sarah Shahi
Writer/Director Jaffar Mahmood brings us a hilarious take on mixed-race marriages, and the oddball families that come along with the territory in Shades of Ray. American-born half-Pakistani Ray Rehman (Zachary Levi) comes home one night to find his father (Brian George) on his doorstep after his mother threw him out. It's an awkward time for his father to move in as Ray just proposed to his Caucasian girlfriend - who hasn't given him an answer. While trying to get his parents back together, Ray meets Sana, a South Asian girl of mixed descent, and must decide where his identity truly lies.
Zachary Levi, star of the TV show "Chuck", is uproarious as the half-white, half-Pakistani protagonist, Ray. Brian George, an actor with a long history of appearances and roles in movies and TV shows, is even more brilliant as his hard-to-please father. The film's casting is solid with very natural performances all around, with the beautiful Sarah Shahi (from "The L Word") who plays an outstanding love-interest as Sana. Ray and Sana's onscreen chemistry in this romantic indie film is rare and unforced magic.
