In Deepa Mehta’s giddy nod to India & America’s movie-making goliaths, the action takes place somewhere between – in her polyglot home of Toronto. When a young dot com millionaire’s fiance dies, his weeping mother advises him that ‘the best cure for a broken heart is marriage’. To please her, he embarks on a fake engagement with a gorgeous and multi-talented escort (Toronto-born Lisa Ray achieved fame in India). There’s an imperious grandmother who speaks in Shakespearean quotes and a transvestite chauffeur. Cue the uproarious song-and dance-numbers and join in the good times. [canada, 2002]
