“Meet the Patels,” which focuses on semi-arranged marriages for Indian-Americans, tracks the adventures of Ravi Patel as he seeks a mate through a system that has brought love into the lives of all of Ravi’s cousins. The movie opens today in Austin, but wasn’t screened for critics in time for opening-day reviews.
It does, however, have an Austin connection. Dhevi Natarajan, a co-editor and associate producer, received a bachelor’s degree in Radio/TV/Film from the U
niversity of Texas and a bachelor’s in Hispanic Studies for UT, too.
She has previosly worked with Geeta V. Patel, who co-directed the film with her brother Ravi.
