INDEPENDENT LENS: "MEET THE PATELS"
December 26, 2016  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 9:00 p.m. ET

 

Ravi Patel, the Master of None and Scrubs performer who occasionally strides outside his comfort zone as an Indian-American standup comic and actor to write or do other ambitious stuff, decides to take a big leap in this very personal documentary, filmed and co-directed by his sister, Geeta. He allows his parents to set him up on a series of arranged meetings, ostensibly to find him a wife. And for reasons this documentary will make clear, all the women have to have the same name as his already – and it’s not to match the monograms. Check local listings.
