The Hundred-Foot Journey


Directed by: Lasse Hallstrom

Written by: Steven Knight

Starring: Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal


The entire cast delights in this flavorful story of culture clash and adding a pinch of spice to life. Helen Mirren puts on her best French accent and plays her role with the perfect reserved passion and her chemistry with Om Puri is adorable. Manish Dayal is wonderfully charismatic as Hassan and plays the ups and down of his journey with ease. Hassan’s romantic interest, Marguerite, is reminiscent of the female chef from Ratatouille with the same undignified arch. The mix of French and Indian music interweaves nicely with the opposing traditional French and festive Indian sides of the roads. The story unfolds nicely with a few surprise elements while ending on the sweet predictable note.
