its-a-wonderful-after-life1We got our hands on the synopsis of Gurinder Chadha’s new film Its a Wonderful Afterlife. Shabana Azmi plays the lead role in the film and it also features Sally Hawkins.

Here is the synopsis…

MRS. SETHI, a widow, can’t bear the thought of her daughter being alone and unhappy. Okay, she’s a little plump and opinionated&but she’d make a great wife for some lucky man, if only she were given a chance. When MRS. SETHI can no longer stomach the rudeness of families who refuse her daughter, she takes matters into her own hands with the only way she knows…

Suddenly a police hunt begins for a serial murderer who cooks a killer curry. MRS. SETHI doesn’t feel too guilty until the SPIRITS of her victims come back to haunt her – complete with tandooried bodies and kebab skewered heads, they’re unable to be reincarnated until their murderer dies.

MRS. SETHI has no problem killing herself she’ll get to see her dead husband again but how can she go before her daughter is married? The SPIRITS realize that helping Mrs Sethi daughter find a suitable husband before the police catch her is their only chance for a wonderful afterlife.

It’s a big bloody wedding and a comic feast which takes the phrase ‘I could murder a curry’ to hysterical new heights.

    ‘Why is the world going gaga over Sendhil whatever?’
    Umm… maybe because he looks positively edible? Hai Marjaawa!

  5. Fatema says:

    Dhruv – Is he now? He looked like a taller, darker copy of Diwaker Pundir to me.

  6. Dhruv says:

    Diwakar Pundir- ?? Some TV soap star, looks like. Anyway, just did a google search, and methinks there’s no comparison!
