Americanish

Women in colorful garments dancing at a Pakastani wedding party
November 13 2021

Directed by Iman Zawahry
USA/English
2021
90 min

Americanish, directed by Iman Zawahry, is a romantic comedy that highlights the stories of three young Pakistani-American women looking for love in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York.

A coming of age narrative, the film follows the joys and tribulations of career-driven sisters (Sam and Maryam Khan) and their newly-immigrated cousin (Ameera), who must navigate the consistent — and sometimes conflicting — demands of romance, culture, work, and family.

Americanish offers a heartwarming and fresh perspective on classic romantic-comedy tropes, delving into the tension that arises between competing societal and cultural norms, and the complexity of trying to both honor and break from cultural traditions.
