Movie synopsis: This super-feel-good movie has it all - love, comedy and mouthwatering Indian food! This heart-warming tale is set in New York where Samir (Aasif Mandvi), is a top sous chef in an upmarket Manhattan restaurant, but passed over for promotion because his cuisine lacks pizzazz. Upset, he resigns; much to the surprise of his young female underchef Carrie. His parents aren't too impressed and his pestering mother (Madhur Jaffrey) is now desperate to find him a wife to sort him out. Worse still, his father gets suddenly ill and Samir has to look after their ailing, slummy Indian restaurant, when he can't even cook Indian food. In desperation Samir turns to a madcap taxi driver, Akbar (magnificently played by Naseeruddin Shah), who swears he cooked for greats like Indira Gandhi. As things get increasingly out of control, Samir unexpectedly crashes into Carrie while doubling up as the delivery boy. But Akbar's ingredients have an unexpected magic. Some great performances by a strong cast who deliver cracking humor.
