A feisty young woman returns to Glasgow to run her deceased father's curry house.


We liked the magical elements of the film. Why should we expect all Brit/Asian films to be like the last one that was made., 5 October 2006 Author: nirmal6700 from United Kingdom " I find some of the comments by ukxenafan1 quite insulting. I am Scottish and Asian and when I saw this film I identified with some of the characters on the screen. The actors', accents were authentic Scottish (some of the actors are actually Scottish) - not heavy Glasgow - and some of them talked in a way many Punjabi, Scottish people like myself talk. So for for this person to say that she/he didn',t know what the accents were supposed to be is insulting to many Scottish- Asians who talk like the characters in the film. They should do their homework on the actors before they post such disrespectful comments. I went to see this film with friends in Glasgow and we all enjoyed it very much. We thought it was different to see a British-Asian film that didn',t have the usual stereotypes that we have seen a thousand times before. Maybe this is why some people are having a problem with this film. There aren',t many white people in the film and the Asian family is like any other family. We liked the magical elements of the film. Why should we expect all Brit/Asian films to be like the last one that was made. The girls in this film are not worshipping a white male god like Beckham. Thank god for that!
