Genre: Comedy, Drama
Original version with French subtitles
After a tragic incident, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), moves from their native India to make a fresh start in a safer place. Papa finds a place for sale that he believes would be perfect for them to open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. His secret weapon is his talented son, Hassan (Manish Dayal), for whom cooking is an art and a passion. However, Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), the chilly owner of a Michelin-starred French restaurant, objects to the existence of a new restaurant 100 feet from her own
Based on the novel "The Hundred-Foot Journey" by Richard C. Morais.
“When a movie explores real emotions en route to its gladdening end, when it takes time to touch on serious issues along the way, it earns the right to make us feel good”
THE CHARLOTTE OBSERVER
