Filmmaker/actor Ravi Kapoor and actor Venk Potula in person for Q&A!!
Written and directed by Ravi Kapoor (Miss India America), this fun romantic comedy affectionately incorporates Indian cultural ideals into an American heist movie genre, creating a mixture or “masala” reviewed as the most unique film to come out of this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
Shot in vibrant, saturated color reminiscent of Wes Anderson, the narrative brims with scrappy, indie-spirit in which underachieving wanna-be rapper Vinny and his neighborhood pals plan to disrupt his ex-girlfriend’s wedding by stealing her family’s jewels from a supermarket safe.
Centered in “Little India” in Artesia, California, the comedy taps into the various aspects of the customs and the food in the area. Through the film’s nuanced and whimsical plot, the characters celebrate various aspects of South Asian American culture with their infectious spirit.
