Storyline

The family of talented cook, Hassan Kadam, has a life filled with both culinary delights and profound loss. Drifting through Europe after fleeing political violence in India that killed the family restaurant business and their mother, the Kadams arrive in France. Once there, a chance auto accident and the kindness of a young woman, Marguerite, in the village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val inspires Papa Kadam to set up a Indian restaurant there. Unfortunately, this puts the Kadams in direct competition with the snobbish Madame Mallory's acclaimed haute cuisine establishment across the street where Marguerite also works as a sous-chef. The resulting rivalry eventually escalates in personal intensity until it goes too far. In response, there is a bridging of sides initiated by Hassan, Marguerite and Madame Mallory herself, both professional and personal, that encourages an understanding that will change both sides forever..

Trivia

The two restaurants facing each other were digitally created. The Maison Mumbai actually faced a large field. The producers paved a 75 m stretch of road and built a building facade on the opposite side with a blue screen on the top. See more »

Goofs

The fireworks displays are artificial. With real fireworks, there would be a noticeable delay between a visual explosion and audio of the explosion. In the film, the boom is instantaneous. See more »

Quotes

Madame Mallory: Do any of you know the words to the Marseillaise? Jean-Pierre?
Jean-Pierre: Of course. It's our national anthem.
Madame Mallory: Do you know all the words? "Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras. Égorger vos fils, vos compagnes!" "They come to slit the throats of our sons, our wives". Alors continuer Jean-Pierre.
Jean-Pierre: "Aux armes citoyens, formez vos bataillons, marchons".
Madame Mallory: And in English, so we can all understand?
Jean-Pierre: "To arms citizens, from your battalions, let us march. May their unpure blood..."
Madame Mallory: "Flow in our fields." And that is what...

A wonderful movie with a wonderful message.
10 August 2014 | by sohom416See all my reviews

When this movie was announced, I was honestly just going to watch because of Om Puri. However, the plot of the movie is so well written, Om Puri was just a extra bonus. This movie has humor that just comes out naturally, but it also shows lots of emotions. This movie hit me home and I am pretty sure it will hit home to others as well. The casting is very well picked and I really enjoyed this film with my family. It is one of those movies you can watch with your family, and just relax and enjoy. There were some plot holes and other things you might find odd, but the whole movie as a whole was well made. A R Rahman also never disappoints with the movie score.

Verdict: Well Written, Well Made, Enjoyable film. For foodies and the families of anyone.
