Comedian Hari Kondabolu’s 50-minute documentary, airing Sunday on truTV, scrutinizes the Apu character and the way it has come to represent stereotypes of Indian-Americans. Yet the documentary is thrown off course a bit by his obsessive pursuit of Hank Azaria, the voice of Apu, who sends an encouraging letter but declines to speak on behalf of the show. ALSO: It sometimes feels like an in-depth Daily Show field piece.

What she mixes up here is cozy and kooky, with a side of depravity.”
