If anyone ever used that "everything will be all right in the end" quote on me, I would karate chop them in the throat. Holy hell.
I am sputtering over here. It doesn't "patronize its audience or reduce its characters to stereotypes," except for oh I don't know, the whole of India, a country still emerging from the terrible legacy of colonialism, which this film so nicely and sweetly reifies? "Even Dev Patel" gets his own storyline, WHAT A TREAT FOR HIM.
