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

"Ceps" (Boletus Edulis) are the wild mushrooms mentioned that the main characters pick throughout the movie. They are famous in French cuisine. The scene with the similar, but poisonous, mushrooms that Marguerite mistakes for ceps refers to the "Devil's Bolete" (Boletus santanas). See more »

Goofs

The town causes the Indian facade to be taken down from the front of the Maison Mumbai. Later in the movie, Madame Mallory is in the Maison and a shot of her has an open window over her shoulder - the back of the facade is clearly seen in the window - apparently still up. See more »

Hassan: I know. I knew then, and I know now.
Madame Mallory: Arrogance.

A Hundred Percent Success
9 August 2014 | by glynne41See all my reviews

This movie is filled with the joys and sorrows that accompany a full life. The acting is excellent. I could not fault a single actor. Even those delivering one liners seemed divested in the story. The photography and music are spectacular. A. R. Rahman showed even more depth and diversity than usual in his deep and varied score, and I kept wishing that I could freeze frame some of the amazing shots from the film so that I could take them home to use as inspiration for a painting. Plus, food has never looked more yummy! The story is touching and kept my interest from beginning to end. The messages contained within are subtle but definitely there, and they are positive and uplifting, which is a welcome change in today's challenging world. I fell in love with it all! Kudos! Kudos! Kudos to all!
