The Tiger Hunter — Trailer


added: Fri, Aug 4th '17

"Community" star Danny Pudi chases the American dream in the trailer for the coming-to-America comedy "The Tiger Hunter."

In the film, set in 1979, Pudi plays Sami Malik, an Indian immigrant traveling to the United States in the hopes of working as a highly-skilled engineer. But after settling in Chicago for two months, Sami can only find a "basement" job as a low-level draftsman for an architecture firm.

Now looking for a way to impress the Indian woman he so desperately wants to marry (played by Once Upon a Time's Karen David), Sami convinces his Indian roommate (comic actor Rizwan Manji) and his American co-worker (Napoleon Dynamite's Jon Heder) to help him pose as a more successful "professional American."

Directed by first-time feature director Lena Khan and co-written by Khan and sitcom writer Sameer Asad Gardezi (Aliens in America, Mind of Mencia), "The Tiger Hunter" will be released in select theaters on September 22nd.

THE TIGER HUNTER is the story of Sami Malik, a young Indian who travels to 1970s America to become an engineer in order to impress his childhood crush and live up to the legacy of his father -- a legendary tiger hunter back home. When Sami's job falls through, he takes a low-end job and joins with a gang of oddball friends in hopes of convincing his childhood sweetheart that he's far more successful than he truly is...or perhaps ever could be.
