Flavors Reviews

July 21, 2004
Innocuous but too-cutesy affair.
July 20, 2004
A good-natured Indian-American romantic comedy in the style of Bend It Like Beckham.

The constant cell phone chatter and pervasive split screen do little to prop up a limp, poorly structured screenplay.
July 16, 2004
Bright, good-spirited and blissfully short for Bollywood, at a mere 118 minutes.

There's enough schmaltz in the romancer Flavors to keep a second-rate TV sit-com going for an entire season, and then some.

This is light fare, but it draws its strength from a strong ensemble cast, in the spirit of Love Actually, and the sweetness of its characters.

It's an independent film about a specific culture that manages to bring that experience to life for any viewer in a funny, heartfelt, engaging way.

Unevenness in tone and the film's reliance on stereotypes is not uncommon to first feature films, and writers and directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. don't help their cause with dialogue that too often asks questions like 'What is life without love?'

Despite an appealing cast, the result has all the pizazz of processed cheese.
July 15, 2004
It's not perfect, but writer-directors Krishna D.K. and Raj Nidimoru deliver some pointed observations and well-drawn characters in their first feature-length film.

Pic lacks density and spontaneity necessary to lift it out of its carefully posed and plotted set-ups and onto a bigscreen.
