British actress Naomie Harris has been nominated for an Oscar for her role as a crack-addicted mother in the 2016 indie drama Moonlight. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some other roles she's played in her career.
K. Pappu's 'Izzat Ki Roti' (aka 'Bread of Honour') is just another typical Bollywood masala (spice) flick from the early 90s. It's got all the ingredients for such cheesy movies. It's no classic (duh!) but corny entertainment. Now I had the remote control to fast-forward the more ridiculous sequences like the long dishum-dishum fight scenes. Now I probably wouldn't have considered watching this if it weren't for the supercute Juhi Chawla. She's very much cast as the typical heroine but her natural charisma, beauty and flair for comedy easily make her stand out. Meanwhile Farha fails to do much with a non-challenging thankless role. Rishi Kapoor is plain boring while Sunny Deol does surprisingly well in some of the comedic sequences (especially when he dresses in drag). With the exception of "Keh De Khul Ke Keh De Duniyawalon Se", the songs are fairly forgettable but Rishi Kapoor's atrocious dancing always provides some unintentional comic relief while Juhi Chawla gets to display some of her dancing skills with energy and grace. 'Izzat Ki Roti' is as forgettable as they come but it's certainly not the worst of its kind.
