    Light and sweet, comfort food dressed up with a dash of exotic spice.

    Stereotypes abound, dialogue is conventional and pace scattered. Still, resulting stew is pleasant.

    "A difficult choice, between perfection and heavenly delight," crows the announcer at an Indian-cooking contest during this movie's climax. Sadly, Pratibha Parmar's Nina's Heavenly Delights offers neither.

    There are a few surprising flavors in Nina's Heavenly Delights, but it's more of a samosa than a meal. The ceiling is set pretty low when characters start exhorting each other to "follow your heart." Which they do, early and often.
  5. A lesbian-foodie fairy tale that keeps its appetites well under control. The title may hint at naughty pleasures, but the director, Pratibha Parmar, is more interested in pappadams than passion.
  6. 25
    This movie's heart is in the right place, which is one way of saying it's terrible.
  7. A lightweight and sentimental exercise that succeeds at little except maybe inspiring the viewer to go out and find a decent curry.

    I really wanted to like this movie at the SF GLT film festival this year. Sadly, me and my entire party were thoroughly disppointed. The script was laughably trite and cliched. I'm sad I'll never get those 2 hrs of my life back. Full Review »
