A ruthless philanthropist. A gay bhangra rapper. An over-protected prodigy. A reckless actress. A lovelorn businessman. An entrepreneurial yogi. And a Loin King. Enter the roller-coaster world of seven strangers whose lives collide during a singing contest in a small New Jersey town, in this rip-roaring comedy. Think Monsoon Wedding meets Annie Hall, in a diner in Queens, for a masala omelette.
