There, papa Kadam (Om Puri), a talented cook, decides to set up an Indian restaurant, directly opposite the Michelin-starred haute cuisine establishment of snobbish Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren). Directed by acclaimed Swedish director Lasse Hallstrom (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, The Cider House Rules, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape).
