Exceedingly not Kipling
15 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Inspired by the events from one of the first waves of actors to come to the UK from the Indian sub continent. This Screen Two film follows the young, wide eyed and innocent Sunil.

He has come to London to study Law at university expecting to find an England from the literature he has read and finding a London far from Keats or Kipling.

His university turns out to be a second rate crammer. No university life for Sunil but an external degree institution. He ends up meeting dodgy characters always up to a scam where he tends to be the victim. He meets Balam, a fellow Indian and ends up being involved in dubious dealings with him. Sunil gets an opportunity to do some acting and ends up in a porn set. At the end, Sunil becomes disillusioned and bitter of the England he has found himself in.

Kulvinder Ghir really captures the wide eyed innocence of Sunil and slow unravelling of his love and expectations of the mother country.
