Nina's Heavenly Delights hints at better-simmered versions of similar dishes.
A lightweight and sentimental exercise that succeeds at little except maybe inspiring the viewer to go out and find a decent curry.
This combination of melodrama, comedy, music and romance eventually falls under the weight of its endlessly stereotypical characters, dialogue and situations.
This movie's heart is in the right place, which is one way of saying it's terrible.
A cloying blend of Bollywood sentiment and Amélie whimsy, Nina's Heavenly Delights is a lesbian-foodie fairy tale that keeps its appetites well under control.
Making her feature debut after several documentaries, Parmar displays rookie jitters with excessive cutting and camera moves whose restlessness occasionally recalls Mumbai soap operas.
offers high production values while telling a conventional tale with several moderately unexpected twists.
Touches of magic realism indicate we are in an ideal world where love will, if not conquer everything, then pretty much hug it into submission.
It's ironic how a film whose outcome depends on the difference between technical perfection and perceived, artistic greatness, would itself prove a slave to shallow screenplay mechanics deprived of nuance.
You know a cross-cultural, gender-bending dramedy has issues, when its most memorable moment is a blasphemous, bouncy Bollywood musical finale featuring a female impersonator.
Parmar scores pleasant performances across the board...Yet the story is bland, like it's been over-workshopped in a screenwriting class, too polite and too smooth around the edges.
The novelty value of an east meets west cultural dynamic isn't enough to disguise how late Nina's Heavenly Delights is to the celluloid coming out party.
I really loved Pratibha Parmar's work on "Nina's Heavenly Delights" and that's the reason I am so pissed off that there is rarely a chance for the character of a dyke to be realistically portrayed - or at least, believably enough for the gay audience to give it a pass. Laura Fraser is cute, but why on earth can't we see a real dyke playing a dyke on screen? Are they so hard to find? That's alI I have to say on this. "Politiki Kouzina" for lesbians!
Great movie!! Excellent story plot. This movie follows the life of Nina who has a special interest and talent in cuisine that was taught alongside her father. She comes home for her father's funeral and soon embarks upon new changes in life, especially discovering love. Great cast- Raji James, Shelley Conn, Laura Fraser, and Francisco Bosch. Fantastic music!! Definitely worthy.
Very fun, very cute lesbian romance with a hint of Bollywood and lots of Scottish charme. The German audience at the Gay & Lesbian film festival was very, very thankful about the subtitles - Glasgow accent is always a challenge.
