Don't be fooled by the sequin wearing, gun-posing promotional clips - this film is serious, and sad.

Rajesh Ji is something of a perfect film subject, charming and earnest, inviting director Phil Cox and crew along during his investigations as well as into his home.

Two years in the making, the story of the Kolkata private eye with an intolerance for crime, a love of dance, and an unfailing devotion to his gravely-ill wife, makes for one of the most wonderful, moving films of 2011.
