Food does have a language,
















The Hundred Foot Journey, has been produced by Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake. Mr Spielberg is close to a big Indo-Western Oscar story in the future, while Oprah has branched out beautifully with Harpo Films.

Om Puri as Mr Kadam, is India’s finest and there is no doubt he leads well in the film. His character’s thrifty charm and determination to make a successful Indian restaurant in Southern France, lights up the passion for a food war between Kadam and Madame Mallory, who is charming Helen Mirren (it was difficult to accept a British actress in this role, but she delivered effortlessly).

The other two stars of the film are Manish Dayal who plays the son Hassan Kadam and the chef par excellence, who has gifted hands and training from his mother, portrayed by India’s well known actress Juhi Chawla. The second lady is Charlotte Le Bon whose character shines as an intelligent and finally successful chef at Madam Mallory’s restaurant.

The Hundred Foot Journey is based on a book by Richard C Morais and is executed with simplicity and grace by Director Lasse Hallstrom. There is no exaggeration of steaming hot kitchens or plates of designer food, there is a good balance of story, character and the main star- food. The best desert is the magical music of A R Rahman, he doesn’t let you know and the boisterous team song he has composed, is wonderful.

The film deserves much love and one that is watched for a different look at life, we all have a story, imagine yours can be so yummy.
