Dude, Wheres the Party? aka Wheres the party yaar? is a 2003 film directed by Benny Mathews. It stars Kal Penn and Sunil Malhotra. It is a comedic film that focuses mainly on the Indian American experience.


Harishkumar S. Patel (Sunil Malhotra) is a geeky student from a small village in Gujarat, India who is attending the University of Houston, while living with his uncle (his fathers best friend). His uncle, Dr. Bakshi, has an American-born son whos Haris age, Mohan Bakshi (Kal Penn). Mohan, known as Mo, is a popular student at UH. He shows Hari around the college but then stays away from him because of Haris nerdy ways.

Hari, meanwhile, is overly excited because of an astrological prediction that was made by a holy man. The famous astrologer told Hari that hell meet his Sapno Ki Raani (the girl of his dreams) in America and her name will begin with a "P." Hari then meets Priya (Tina Cherian), a Malayali studying fashion, and falls in love with her. In the meanwhile, Mo falls in love with Janvi Valia (Serena Varghese), a Punjabi girl, but things dont go as planned when Mo invites Janvi to a party. In the films conclusion, Mo learns important things about his culture, and Hari overcomes his challenges. This film is primarily a comedic portrayal of young Indian Americans going through life.
