Wonderful Escapist Fun.
18 October 2018 | by trevd-22977See all my reviews

If you are looking for a bit of light hearted wacky fun you could do a lot worse than this film. This is not normally my type of fare but this got under my skin. The charcters are all likeable and the bollywood moments put a big grin on my face. I will seek the book out now & read that as I enjoyed the movie way more than I expected to. If you need an antidote to the nastiness & violence so prevalent in modern cinema this is a good example.
