Cinemascope: Hasan Minhaj - Homecoming King

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2017.

Plot line: In his first stand-up special, Hasan Minhaj weaves humorous and heartbreaking anecdotes to tell his life story as an Indian-American Muslim. Topics include racism, bullying and meeting the demanding expectations of his immigrant parents.

Netflix is doing some really fun programming these days. I was in the mood for something light to watch, and while I smiled, there are serious topics covered here. Exactly what I was looking for. "Once you go brown, you gotta lock it down," indeed.

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is TV worth watching.
