Ocean of Pearls full movie is released on Jun 17, 2011. Watch Ocean of Pearls online - the English Drama movie from United States. Ocean of Pearls is directed by Sarab Neelam and created by Sarab Neelam with Omid Abtahi and Heather McComb.

As a Sikh man with a full beard and turban, Amrit Singh is often the target of racial profiling. But when he sees his dreams of becoming Chief of Surgery at a state-of-the-art transplant center dwindle because of his appearance, Amrit goes against a tradition he's maintained his whole life and cuts his hair. Hiding this decision from his girlfriend and family in Toronto is only the start of a series of compromises Amrit finds himself making as he deals with hospital politics and health care injustices. When his compromises result in the death of a patient, Amrit begins to reexamine the value of the religious traditions he'd turned his back on.

Overly earnest but engaging.

Ocean, smoothly directed by Sarab S. Neelam, mostly comes down on the side of tradition and, like Amrit, is dutiful and virtuous. And, like him, it's also a bit too well mannered to make a strong impact.

Ocean of Pearls is, underneath the gross sentimentality, racist and shameless, and it might be dangerous if it weren't so forgettable and on-the-nose.
