4.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful and funny ... 8 Dec 2004
By A Customer
This film won't change your life.
But if you take it for what it is - a gentle, fairly low-key comedy / drama - then you'll enjoy it.
The acting was over the top in places, but so what, isn't that what comedy's about? I thought the girl who played the central character, Meena, did a great job. And I thought the social issues covered by the film - the difficulties faced by a young girl, growing up feeling "different" - were handled really sensitively.
It wasn't laugh-out-loud funny, but it did have a few funny moments and I really warmed to the characters.
I don't know where the "politically correct rubbish" comments come from. I can only wonder why that reviewer watched the DVD in the first place.

This film clearly provokes strong reactions - from very bad to very good. Well, put me in the 'good' category.
Having lived in the 'Black Country' myself, only a couple of miles from Meera Syal (didn't know her, unfortunately), this film captures the area & the times (early 70s) perfectly - even the accents are right for once.
If you liked Bend it like Beckham or East is East, you'll definitely like this. Chandeep Uppal as Meena is a revelation - just look at her facial expressions.
Give it a try. Just sit back & enjoy the realistic recreation of a working class area in the 70s (warts & all). I dare you not to laugh at the humour, be moved by the emotions & sing along to the soundtrack (even Chicory Tip!!!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the Amazon review! 30 Jun 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this film at a friend's house - and since I'm not a chick-flick fan, I was expecting to automatically dislike and dismiss it.
OK, it's not exactly groundbreaking, original or cerebral. But it's exceptionally enjoyable and engrossing. Watching this tale of an awkward adolescent finding her place in the world (and in her adopted country) is akin to sitting down on a rainy Sunday with a short and satisfying novel, full of lively (if ever-so-slightly cliched) characters, helping her discover herself.
Admittedly, East is East is a superior take on similar themes, but if you're having the girls around, you're guarenteed to like this heartwarmer.

5.0 out of 5 stars First-class 10 Jan 2005
By "jeek7"
This, by far, is the best film I have ever seen. It is comical, yet absolutely bizarre.
I read the other reviews and agree mostly with what everybody else has said, so I needn't say more.
Brill film, brill actors and well done Meera for writing such a brill story :)
