Upon my daughter’s recommendation, I recently watched Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King on Netflix and simply loved it! I hadn’t heard of Hasan Minhaj until the recent White House correspondents dinner when he was trending on social media for his hilarious jokes.
Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King is not only hilarious but also quite emotional in places. Both me (as an immigrant) and my daughter (as an American born Indian) connected with him so much that its impossible to not like him. What I loved about Hasan is how connected he is to his roots and his culture. His usage of Hindi was apt and spoke volumes about his ingrained culture. In this day and age, a lot of immigrants let go of their cultural roots in order to fit in but Hasan seems like his is very comfortable in his skin and that to me is his USP.
This one and a half hour Netflix special is worth watching and you will really crack up in places and connect so much emotionally as well!
