Acclaimed by the New York Times as “an audacious comedy,” the wildly entertaining Masala garnered rave reviews and was named awarded the ‘Best South Asian Film of the 20th Century’ by the British Film Institute. An international hit, Masala explores the life of young South Asians living in Toronto as they juggle their modern lives in the west with the traditional values of their families. In this hilarious, furious, genre-bending classic, a young rebel defies family, culture and tradition, only to discover the bittersweet taste of going home. Krishna, a recovering drug addict who lost his entire family in a plane crash, is released from rehab and heads for his Uncle Lalu Bhai’s home. Immediately Krishna finds himself in a strange world where old values clash with new, and where the Hindu god, Lord Krishna, carries on a sarcastic communication with mortals via the VCR.
