Reviews

British comedy horror in which an Indian mother takes her obsession with marriage a little too far. Widow Mrs Sethi (Shabana Azmi) is desperate to see her only daughter, Rupi (Goldy Notay), get married. When Rupi is rudely rejected by a series of suitors, Mrs Sethi resorts to cooking her killer curry in order to bump them off, one by one. But the spirits of her victims soon come back to haunt her as they are unable to be reincarnated until their murderer dies. Mrs Sethi must now kill herself in order to free the spirits, but is determined to get her daughter married off before she enters the afterlife.

Format: DVD
i saw this at the cinema - the reviews were terrible but I'm used to critics "not getting" bollywood and humour.
it was a bit slow in places - with panoramic sweeps of the city etc, but clearly that is to be of interest overseas. The plot was good, the one liners were superb, and the black humour very funny. Yes its about murder, but humourous murder - who could quibble about that when there are so many vile violent films out there ?
and the food fight - if you can call it that, was very funny indeed, the slowmotion poppadoms shattering everywhere, the sag aloo splattering down, very very funny, very arty and yet had an inner dignity
still giggle at the vegetarian ghost who complains that she has been murdered with a meat skewer - you could have used a paneer skewer she plaintively cries.
my only negaitive remark is that some of the minor characters were rather one dimemsional - the police are UK police but they behave just like indian police would in a film, so again I'd guess that is for the export market
I'm ordering the DVD so my mum can watch it with me, she is going to love it too

I went to see this movie after returning from my first visit to India and feeling very 'homesick'! It had me laughing throughout. It is a bit silly and bizarre in places, but overall is really entertaining, with a lovely feel-good ending! Relating to some of the Indian phrases/food/jokes, etc, I picked up on holiday there, made this film even more funny and personal! Would definitely recommend.

I read about this film online and thought it looked good so I boughton the off chance what I had read was true. It was! I really enjoyed the film, from the comedy to the romance. Good acting and funny story, wish there were more movies like this one!

Funny and charming, this is a light-hearted comedy that is not to be taken too seriously. It's got a stellar cast and is definitely worth a watch.
