Chicken Tikka Masala Review


Weak
With Chicken Tikka Masala, 18-year-old screenwriter Roopesh Parekh has penned a lively but vacuous mashup of My Beautiful Laundrette and The Wedding Banquet. It's a fun and sprawling farce that glosses over the heavy issues it raises with comedy.

Jimi (Chris Bisson), the number one son of a prosperous immigrant Indian family living in Preston, England, should be married by now.

East Is East Review


OK
East is east and west is west, and never the twain shall meet... or at least that is the saying. In East is East, the twain have met and married in 1946. The East, a Pakistani by the name of George Khan (Om Puri) came to England searching for work and met Ella (Linda Bassett). 25 years later, we watch as the Eastern influences of George's patriarchal dictatorship clash with the Western ideals that surround the family.

This sounds like a BBC Kitchen Sink Drama of the week or an early Mike Leigh TV-movie (in Leigh's pre-Naked days), and indeed would end up being just that if it weren't for the fact that East is East is delightfully funny. As the tragedy of a family being torn apart by Muslim upbringing clashing with Christian ideals, East is East journeys further into the realm of absolute absurdity.
