There was a brief time in the eighties when Anglo Indian movies had high appeal. I really mean English Indian movies. We saw a few of them. I loved them.
It was one of the most erotic things I have even seen on the big screen, that is when the actor Daniel Day-Lewis dribbled champagne from his mouth into his Pakistani lover's mouth when celebrating the success of the opening of their laundrette in the movie My Beautiful Laundrette.
I asked R and he can't remember any details of the movie either, but we both loved Sammy and Rosie get Laid.
There are not too many movies I have seen twice, but Bhaji on the Beach was one of them and I enjoyed it just as much the second time. If you like fast US dialogue and action packed, it is probably not for you. Think more along the lines of the Kumars at Number 42. In fact I think the actor who played Sanjeev's mother may well have been in Bhaji on the Beach.
All fine movies in my memory. I should think they would still stand up.
