Funny even if it lost me at times

At 14, Jasbir is approaching an important point in his adult and spiritual life as a Sikh. However his friends are all winding him up about it and he is worried about the pressures of the whole day. Even more so, how will he be able to merge his one real passion for Elvis with his life as an adult Sikh?

This film looks at the clash of east and west in the lives of young Sikhs. It cleverly does this by having Jasbir's eastern culture represented by his religious festival that his mother prepares him for. Meanwhile his western upbringing his reflected in his love for all things Elvis. The film shows both strands separately but brings it together well to show how the two can exist together.

The child actors are mainly all good. Jasbir is particularly well played and is totally believable and very funny. Only one of the boys in the park scenes sounds like he's reading it off a card just off camera.

Overall this is a clever and funny film that makes a good point about culture and identity without being preachy or self righteous or even without forcing it down the audience's throat - very good.
