East is East writer Ayub Khan-Din returns with another funny, tender-hearted portrait of family strife.
Based on Ayub Khan-Din’s popular play Rafta, Rafta (itself inspired by Bill Naughton’s 1960s classic), the film is set in Bolton where Atul and Vina are celebrating their marriage. However, a honeymoon spent with his parents was not part of their plans as thoughtless patriarch Eeshwar seems determined to emasculate and embarrass his son.
As the weeks pass, consummating their union becomes an impossibility that threatens the couple’s entire future. A breezy mixture of heartbreak and hilarity, ‘All in Good Time’ also offers peerless performances from original stage stars Harish Patel and Meera Sya. There's an observational wit and attention to detail here, making the film delightful to watch. An inventive piece of cross-genre work that makes for a great entertainment.
