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.

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.

It's a lovely ideal, and the food dishes are photographed scrumptiously, but the whole thing comes off undercooked.

Veena Sood plays Nina's mother with magisterial presence. But Conn overacts just as much as the impetuous Nina overreacts.

In her feature debut, filmmaker Pratibha Parmar falls back on every cliché she's supposedly trying to undermine.
