Heera Bhatti, an American-Sikh, runs a corner store in Los Angeles with the help of her son, Vikram, and Gulu. She does not approve of Vikram's Caucasian girlfriend, Lillian, and would prefer that Vikram marry a Punjabi girl, but Vikram has made up his mind. Then the lives of all Californians are turned upside down when one morning eight people are dead after drinking contaminated tap water. The State goes on alert, with troopers and the police stepping up to ensure that the culprits (Al Qaeda?) are caught. But then the locals have to content with the instructions: Not to be in contact with tap water for 72 hours. That means no one can wash their face, hands, feet, shower, shave nor drink water - the life saving ingredient that has been taken so much for granted. Watch as Heera, Vikram and Lillian comes to term with this emergency, how Heera jacks the price of bottled water, and the impact this emergency has on the community. Written by
If you enjoyed crash you will undoubtedly enjoy this. Similar story - similar structure - similar music.
If your into films in any way you'll appreciate the that the final cut of this movie was made on a very small budget, but gives the feel of a much bigger movie. There is a believably tense atmosphere throughout the movie which is further drove into your being by the excellent music (very similar to crash).
The running time is short - but leaves you feeling as though you've seen a lot more.
The film is a character based one and is driven along by some pretty good acting. But the film is really too short for any of the leads to really stretch there acting skills.
The main guy is actually the oldest brother from "malcolm in the middle" and after watching this I hope he gets more work in the future.
A very good film overall - My buddy thought it was super sweet.
Who am i to disagree!!!!!!!!!!!! WATCH!!!!!!!!!!!!
