Pusher 2010
30 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this at a preview test screening they did in Leicester. The film is brilliant. I went with an Asian mate and he couldn't believe it (there's no Bollywood songs! The director/actor is British! The last section of the film plot is totally different from Pusher 1. It is set in the 1999 summer of the cricket world cup (leading to Oz & Pakistan final). There is an added cricket/match fixing/gambling subplot in the film too. I think the director Assad has done a really good job and his performance holds the thing together. It has been Indianised but not sold out and definitely not a shot to shot remake. Viewers (black, white, Asian) at the preview liked the film. One question, with the cricket – did the film producers fix the Pakistan match last week for publicity for their film!!!???lol
