The movie tells the story of an Indian family who relocate to a small village in France, where they open an Indian restaurant opposite a French one run by a woman named Madame Mallory, played by Helen Mirren.
Puri recently said that he shares a great rapport with co-star Helen Mirren.
The film is directed by Oscar winner Lasse Hallstrom.
When an Oscar winning director like Lasse Hallstrom and producer Steven Spielberg join hands for a film, it's surely an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and Juhi Chawla didn't want to miss out on that one. The actress has been signed for their upcoming venture The Hundred Foot Journey.

The Hundred Foot Journey is based on the Richard C Morais' novel by the same name and is co-produced by Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake. »
‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ release date postponed to Valentine’s Day 2015 (photo: Shirtless Jamie Dornan) Valentine’s Day 2015 will get a lot kinkier than Valentine’s Days of years past — well … depending on your concept of "kink." Universal Pictures has announced that the movie version of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey, likely to get either a tame (for sex) R or an even tamer PG-13 rating from the prudes at the Motion Picture Association of America, has a new release date: Friday, February 13, 2015, the day before Valentine’s Day and the start of President’s Day weekend in the United States. To be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy), Fifty Shades of Grey is set to star Henry Cavill-look-alike Jamie Dornan (Flying Home) as billionaire and S&M aficionado Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson (21 Jump Street) as his ready, willing, and able sex pal.

Halifax -- Hollywood's most fattening movies point the camera at compelling chefs. Recall Meryl Streep in Julie & Julia, Tony Shalhoub in Big Night and Catherine Zeta-Jones in No Reservations. Those movies brought audiences into gilded pantries, while also bringing dirty pots and pans into the open. But European and other foreign food-themed movies mostly feature the big dinner, where eating well is the best revenge against life's woes and ills. Remember the mighty gorge in Gabriel Axel's Babette's Feast, Alfonso Arau's Like Water for Chocolate, Ang Lee's Eat Drink Man Woman, Lasse Hallstrom's Chocolat and Juzo Itami's Tampopo.

Production has begun in southwest France on The Hundred-foot Journey, based on the best-selling novel by Richard C. Morais. Starring Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren, and directed by Oscar nominee Lasse Hallström, the film will be released on August 8, 2014 in the U.S.
In The Hundred-foot Journey, Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), gets wind of it.

Another 25 unsung greats come under the spotlight, as we provide our pick of the underappreciated films of 1993...
What a year 1993 was. It saw the release of Star Fox on the Super Nintendo. Bill Clinton became president. Season three of Deep Space Nine premiered on Us television. UK politician Douglas Hurd visited Argentina. Cyndi Lauper released her album Hat Full Of Stars.
Aside from those earth shattering events, we'll probably remember 1993, in cinema terms, as the year Jurassic Park dominated the box office like an angry Tyrannosaurus. A true phenomenon, its profits doubled those of the second most watched film in 1993 cinemas, Mrs Doubtfire, and almost three times as much as the movie below that - the Harrison Ford thriller, The Fugitive.
But as ever, there was so much more to the 1993 movie landscape than dinosaurs and Robin Williams dressed as an old woman. »
Formerly titled Black Sky , New Line Cinema's "found footage" tornado thriller has been retitled Into the Storm and set for an August 8, 2014 release. Directed by Steven Quale ( Final Destination 5 ) from a screenplay by John Swetnam, Into the Storm stars Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Nathan Kress, Arlen Escarpeta, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle Davis and Jon Reep. The faux found footage film documents high school students caught in a deadly, tornado-spawning hurricane. Richard Armitage will play a widowed father who, with the help of storm chasers, tries to rescue his son from the aftermath of a string of tornadoes. The August 8, 2014 release date puts Into the Storm up against Lasse Hallstrom's The Hundred-Foot Journey and Jonathan Liebesman's »

Based on the number of stars in the cast of August: Osage County, the big screen adaptation of Tracy Letts‘ Pulitzer Prize-winning play, the film looked like a sure-fire best picture Oscar contender. Some even began referring to it as “August: Oscar County” before anyone had even seen a frame of it. But then the film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month, and was met with reviews that one might call very mixed, if one was feeling generous. Some of the performances that it showcases were cheered — particularly those of Meryl Streep, Chris Cooper and Margo Martindale — but the movie itself clearly had problems, with director John Wells even admitting that its ending might have to be changed prior to its Christmas Day release.
This isn’t the first time that a film that looked like an Oscar powerhouse on paper »
