Excellent movie
13 March 2017 | by Dean GovenderSee all my reviews

This is a simple movie with a bunch of great actors. No fancy effects or over-dramatic scenes like the bollywood stuff. It takes a comedic approach to one of the hidden agendas amongst the Indian population in South Africa but at the same time, also relatable in most cultures globally. Highly recommended to watch and is safe for the younger viewers too (though i might add some PG is needed).
