Quick review:
Exquisite and exciting, exotic and inviting, this tale of a romance that begins with a misdelivered meal will put a smile on your face, a tear in your eye. Set in the teeming thrum of Mumbai, Ritesh Batran’s first feature is full of whimsy and wisdom, and boasts a beautifully quiet and wholly realized performance from "Slumdog Millionaire’s" Irrfan Khan.
