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.
"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.
