Good at the beginning, flopped at the end., 10 December 2002
Author: Ashley Whitear from Southampton, England

The White Teeth mini-series went on to show only four parts. I saw each one of them. I really liked the first one but the other three didn't quite keep the magic of the programme. Plus some bad acting was included inside the programme. Also pathetic indian actor Om Puri embarressed himself.
