A clever young man comes to America on a quest for success and love in a hilarious story of ambition, failure, and misfit friends. Set in the 1970s, The Tiger Hunter is the story of Sami Malik, a young Indian who travels to 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.

Movie Quotes

Tom Ripley:
Don't you just take the past and put it in a room in a basement and lock the door and never go in there? That's what I do, And then you meet someone special and all you want to do is to toss them the key and say; open up, step inside, but you can't, because it's dark, There's demons and if anybody saw how ugly it is. I keep wanted to do that, fling the door open just let light in and clean everything out.
