Kings of Curry (2012)

Two sibling chefs part ways and set up separate restaurants. Chaos ensues.

 If you like food, then this is a film for you. The cinematography is full to the brim with food, and luxuriates in this. It is a pleasant low budget treat, and don’t expect miracles yet the short run time slips by.

Other relationships within the story (apart from the central brother relationship) are all too often not executed well and as such this makes the film suffer. That being said, it presents food as something which can involve families and communities. That in itself is something positive.

It was luckily a very short film which didn’t drag and yet suffered for its predictability. The food was to the fore, while all else suffered. It was also funny at times but not enough to make me want to go back to it, because with the ending you know how things will turn out in the end and as such it doesn’t feel like it needs a repeat viewing because the ending is reached with a thud and does not make me want to go back and watch it again.

MY RATING: **.5 / *****
