Bhaji on the Beach
Tensions (and inhibitions) run high when a group of British-Asian women take a trip to Blackpool.
Dir Gurinder Chadha
With Kim Vithana, Jimmi Harkishin, Sarita Khajuria
When a group of British women, mostly Punjabi, take a trip to Blackpool, tensions rise between the younger girls and the older women. Gurinder Chadha’s debut feature (co-written with Meera Syal) uses the day trip to look at issues within the British Asian community, where old traditions and new ways make for uncomfortable situations.
