Alfie Singh, accountant turned film producer, has a great idea for a film. It's called Ealing Comedy and it's about an accountant turned film producer called Alfie Singh. Alfie will play himself and his real son, Paul, will play his son in the film. Turned down by all the financiers, Alfie vows to make the film himself. His life with his wife and teenage son and his struggles to finance and make films in the UK are all woven together in a series of mad-cap events, resulting in a very British film. Written by
I don't normally comment on music from movies but in this case the music by Raiomond Mirza was the best thing in it. It was an unusual blend of styles that just lifted the whole film and his songs were catchy and fun.
I didn't get what they were going for with anything else. There were some strange long boring bits that just should have been chopped down (two whole bollywood songs!), there were also loads of laughs that were missed and I just didn't get some parts of the story and dialogue which lurched about disjointedly.
They could also have used some real actors for the smaller roles but it was nice to see a film with heart that tried to reach for the stars. One or two bits were genuinely funny and heartwarming which is pretty good considering they don't seem to have had much of a budget.
I've seen many worse films that probably cost much more to make.
On the whole it's a fun loving chuckle.
