Centred around a close knit, larger-than-life British Asian family living in present day Bolton, ALL IN GOOD TIME stars REECE RITCHIE (The Lovely Bones) and AMARA KARAN (The Darjeeling Limited) as Atul Dutt and his young bride Vina, for whom the first taste of married life is proving far from straightforward.

[It] has a late-entry note of poignancy that cuts through the predictable in this Bollywood bedroom farce. But it's not enough to nudge it out of the column marked "mediocre."
In short, All in Good Time is a failed performance about a performance failure.
Compromised by a contrived storyline, a confounding key subplot involving a character we never meet and an overly convenient resolution.
It's all very contrived and sometimes clumsy, but what rescues the tale is the element of pathos lurking beneath the film's broad comedy.
All in Good Time is a touching, likable comedy of life in Lancashire's Hindu community.
Not quite the feel-good farce you might expect, this is an uneven but sober work about the pragmatic nature of relationships.
None of this quite adds up to great filmmaking, but its populist appeal is undeniable. You'd need a hard heart not to empathise with the young couple's plight.
A wise and witty film about sex - well, actually the lack of it - that's honest and often laugh-out-loud funny.
The set-up remains a universal one for all young lovers regardless of race and this a throughoughly-likeable, warm-hearted film with good performances.
While Ritchie and Karan offer up charming performances, their characters could use more depth: the romantic complications feel sudden without much psychological insight.
The cast, largely straight from the stage, project their dialogue as if no one has told them to stop playing to the gallery and start playing to the multiplex.
Its stagey mix of East Is East-style father/ son conflict and bouncy bedroom farce is endearing, though a tad stereotyped.
The performances are strong, especially from Patel and Syal, and there are plenty of laughs.
East Is East writer Ayub Khan-Din returns with another bittersweet tale of clashing generations amidst a close-knit Asian community in Lancashire.
For all its gentle drama and nicely-judged performances, this has some work to do...
