It’s a DreamWorks film, is a food-based film, includes A.R Rahman’s music, is helmed by the director of Lasse Hallström (director of Chocolat) and stars Om Puri. I’m already SOLD! Based on Richard C. Morais’ book by the same name, The Hundred-Foot Journey is a story of what happens when a jovial Indian Family meets one celebrated French chef, and what follows when you open an Indian eatery straight across her French restaurant. From the trailer one can rest assured of a fun theme, where the major high points are the food and a probable friendship.
The film features Om Puri, Helen Mirren and Manish Dayal in this cross-cultural foodie delight. Produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey, the film is slated for an August release.
