3rd i co-presents “Jadoo” at Pacific Film Archive

"Jadoo" film still

3rd i co-presents at CAAMFest 2014.

Amit Gupta’s Jadoo begins with Shalini (played by the sweet-looking Amara Karan), who has just been proposed to by Mark (the handsome Tom Mison). Cue the drama when audience members realize that Mark has not yet met his father-in-law, Raja (comedic Harish Patel). It is implied he may have difficulty fitting into Shalini’s family’s lifestyle.

When Shalini returns to Leicester to visit her father, she realizes she may never get the perfect marriage ceremony. It has been two decades since her father and Uncle Jagi have spoken to one another. Will Shalini’s wedding be enough to bring them together again, or will she have to resort to other resources to resolve the family feud?

Written for laughter, tears and the desire to instantaneously eat everything on the screen, Gupta pens a heartwarming story about family and community. More than the implications of interracial romance found in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Jadoo delves into the dilemmas of misunderstood intentions, regardless of religion or ethnicity.

This film also plays at Sundance Kabuki Cinemas on March 18, 2014 at 9:20 pm
