"Every now and then you sit
through a film that, when it is completed, has
been a time of ecstasy, moments well-spent that
have made you a better person because you have
been there. If you miss this movie, you will miss
one of the greatest cinematic experiences of all
time. When the film was over, they stood to their
feet and applauded the movie (Jacksonville-Florida
screening). After you see it, so will you." Keith Johnson, Jacksonville.Com

Jayne Kennedy, Orange County Business Journal
"My wife and I went to see the Gold Bracelet at the Newport Beach Film Festival and were happily surprised. Produced, written, directed and as an actor, Kavi Raz did a superb job. This movie is a breath of fresh air with the integration of Indian culture being integrated into western culture. The inner workings of this Indian family are most impressive. The love between husband and wife, the respect and honor of the children to their parents and the devotion to their theology seem to be missing in most of the films coming out of the USA. I hope for much success in the marketing of this film."
"We saw the movie at Indianapolis Film Festival
and loved it. One of the most powerful films I
have seen." Michelle Kunkel
"Mr. Raz, I wanted to share with you how much
the movie touched me…excellent production…deserves

a rather brilliant performance that is just as
emotive as it is passionate." Michael Ferraro
"The movie while offering entertainment, a window to the Punjabi culture, and frequent and familiar challenges of families as they try to transplant and create a place for themselves in the American cultural landscape, leaves some lasting resonance and lessons: to make an effort to know, understand, appreciate, and celebrate our collective goodness, decency, and the tapestry of cultures and to take needed steps to preserve and assure its rightful place and sanctity to our lives and spirit and culture of communities where we live."
I absolutely loved the "The Gold Bracelet" Tajman,
Kavi Raz, I must commend you on such a brilliant depiction of current day Sikh families. Please continue to create such fantastic films on the Indian heritage.

Phil Dean, British-Canadian Filmmaker
A must see movie….This award winning drama…."The Gold Bracelet"
Calgary Herald, Calgary Canada
"The Gold Bracelet" was a hit…it was an unforgettable experience.
Kavi Raz thank you for the incredible work that you have done
T. Sher Singh-Toronto-Canada
Kavi Raz's full length movie "The Gold Bracelet"
was an absolute stunner as a Sikh family comes
to term with 9/11 in USA and racialism, and self-doubt
of their own identity as recognizable Sikhs. A
very moving portrayal with some light moments,
some very touching moments and tragedy. Superbly
acted and directed and worthy of opening in 5000
cinemas across the world. This film will be talked
about for a long time and I consider myself privileged
that I saw it. Daya Singh-World
Dharmendra, Indian Superstar
