Loins Of Punjab Presents

I have to say, this is one of the funniest movies that I have seen in quite some time.  I am not of an Indian decent, but I was still able to pick up on most of the humor. I was able to watch this movie recently while recovering from my best dental implants Indianapolis surgery. A week in bed is a great time to watch movies.

Director Manish Acharya did a really good job in this Bollywood mockumentary of a reality TV game show.  The movie focuses on folks of an Indian decent from the tri-state area, who go on a low-budget talent show where they compete for a $25,000 prize.

The characters include a cold motherly figure Rrita Kapoor, as the luminous Shabana Azmi. Then there is a hopeful rap artist Turbanotorious B.D.G., played by Ajay Naidu.  And I can’t forget to mention the aspiring Bollywood movie star Opama Menon, portrayed by Ayesha Dharker.  And, of course, Josh Cohen, played by Michael Raimondi, who is an Indian-loving white dude. And, last but not least, there is the perturbed 2nd-generation teen Preeti Patel (Ishitta Sharma).  All in all, this is a great cast and each plays their role well in the film.

I think that if you watch this film, you will not be disappointed.  It is rated at 7.2 at the IMDB and over 70% of viewers liked it on RottenTomatoes.  You may miss some of the humor, if you are not Indian, but overall you will have quite a few laughs from this wonderful movie.
