Movie Info

This comedy revolves around two brothers, both wonderful chefs, who fall out catastrophically. At the climax of their dispute they rip the family recipe book in half - one brother gets the starters and the other gets the main courses. They set up rival restaurants, across the road from each other, and spend the next twenty years trying to out-do each other. Neither brother will admit it but they both know they are not entirely successful in the 'other half' of the menu. It takes a daughter - a successful corporate lawyer marrying a man from a very different background - to reunite them. She is planning her marriage and is determined that they will both cook the wedding banquet.

No shortage of appetising ingredients here, yet the execution sadly fails to make the most of them.

Colourful and engaging, this subculture comedy keeps us smiling with a mouth-watering mix of delicious food and lively characters.

You can see where it's all heading right from the off, but even in the predictable resolve you'll be hard-pressed to keep your eyes bone dry.

If the story doesn't linger long in the memory, director Amit Gupta's loving depiction of food is something to savour.

Buoyant and beautifully shot the picture is a celebration of food and family life that adroitly sidesteps many cultural cliches.

Not bad, just terribly mild.
