Event Information

Pravesh Kumar’s debut feature is a laugh-out-loud story of a dysfunctional Punjabi family in the pressure cooker life of a terraced suburban home in West London. 

Newly arrived from India, naive Simmy has come to marry the family’s eldest son Raj, who shockingly does a runner, leaving Simmy locked in the house by her domineering mother-in-law. But Simmy is smarter than she appears, and soon enlists the support of the family's disgruntled in-laws, including a sugar crazed, diabetic grandpa and a dangerous brother-in-law, fresh out of jail. Together they plan Simmy’s big escape.

The screening will be followed by a live onstage Q&A with Pravesh Kumar, cast and crew.
