Meera Syal scripted episode foreshadowing her later major work
27 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

Plot: Sweetie, Jimmy's niece, visits from Bombay. While everyone at The Jewel in The Crown restaurant expects her to be a demure innocent thing, she turns out to be anything but! The beautiful Sneha Gupta (who worked with Merchant Ivory) stars as the Bombay niece of Saeed Jafarey's Jimmy Sharma- owner and proprietor of The Jewel in The Crown. Scripted by Meera Syal, clearly the idea that the Indian cousins of British Asians should be more modern was a striking one then (and so utilised here for comedy)- nowadays we see the modernity of India and Bollywood daily.

A bit soapy- but nicely women centred (so foreshadowing Syal's later work- e.g. Life is not all Ha Ha Hee Hee'), the performances are all very good, with the great Zohra Segal as a demented Gran (so foreshadowing again Syal's love of this character- e.g. Kumars.
