While this is an American movie, it is an indie film, and it’s about a different culture within America, so I’m counting it.

First get your Indian meal ready, this is some great India food porn. Samir takes over running his father’s Indian restaurant, Tandoori Palace. Doesn’t every city have a Tandoori Palace? In doing so, he works with an amazing Indian chief who embraces life. Samir learns more then how to cook wonderful Indian food, he comes to terms with his life, his parents, and what he really wants for his future.

This is a movie I could watch over and over again. It is sweet and funny, and the advice the cook Samir hires is this amazing guru live life to the fullest kind of guy.

This movie is fine for the whole family to watch, but probably won’t be interesting to younger children.
