Movie Info

Nina Shah (Shelley Conn), a closeted lesbian, returns to Scotland following her father's death and discovers that the family restaurant is for sale. Nina's father secretly entered a "Best of the West" curry competition before his death, and Nina vows to win the contest and save the eatery. Lisa (Laura Fraser), a charismatic woman who owns half of the business, agrees to help Nina, and soon the kitchen heats up with more than exotic spices when Nina falls in love with Lisa.

  • Nina's Heavenly Delights hints at better-simmered versions of similar dishes.

    February 1, 2008 | Rating: 2/4
  • A lightweight and sentimental exercise that succeeds at little except maybe inspiring the viewer to go out and find a decent curry.

    December 7, 2007 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • This combination of melodrama, comedy, music and romance eventually falls under the weight of its endlessly stereotypical characters, dialogue and situations.

    December 5, 2007
  • This movie's heart is in the right place, which is one way of saying it's terrible.

    November 30, 2007 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • A cloying blend of Bollywood sentiment and Amlie whimsy, Nina's Heavenly Delights is a lesbian-foodie fairy tale that keeps its appetites well under control.

Audience Reviews for Nina's Heavenly Delights

  • Nov 22, 2010
    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.
