There is a good-bad film lurk­ing within this grey-pound com­edy from arch-sen­ti­men­tal­ist Hall­ström. Om Puri plays an In­dian restau­ra­teur who sets up shop op­po­site Mir­ren’s Miche­lin­starred es­tab­lish­ment. Sparks fly amus­ingly. Then, alas, it sud­denly goes (ahem) off the boil. The two vet­er­ans sort out their dif­fer­ences and we are led into an end­less, bor­ing yarn in­volv­ing Puri’s son (Dayal) and his am­bi­tions to be­come a master chef. Di­vert­ing, nonethe­less. PG cert, gen re­lease, 117 min
