This comedy revolves around two brothers, both wonderful chefs, who fall out catastrophically. At the climax of their dispute they rip the family recipe book in half - one brother gets the starters and the other gets the main courses. They set up rival restaurants, across the road from each other, and spend the next twenty years trying to out-do each other. Neither brother will admit it but they both know they are not entirely successful in the 'other half' of the menu. It takes a daughter - a successful corporate lawyer marrying a man from a very different background - to reunite them. She is planning her marriage and is determined that they will both cook the wedding banquet.Written by

Surprisingly funny, feel good British Asian comedy
Jadoo is a surprisingly funny, feel good British Asian comedy. Endearing, mouth-watering and with a terrific reveal at the end. The story line is simple - two brothers with competing restaurants involved in a long running family feud over their mothers' recipe book and the daughter who endeavours to bring them back together. Jadoo is what independent film making is all about and does not take itself too seriously. A heartfelt story teaching us about the value of family as so often is shared through a meal. We get a unique glimpse into the largest Indian community in the UK (Leicester). The south Asian actors steal the show. A must see for all ages. A few genuinely funny scenes and countless on screen mouth-watering Indian meals later, I could not help but smile.
