Now Playing: British Comedy Wicked Little Letters starring Olivia Colman!

Closes March 28
🇨🇦 A coming-of-age hymn to Bollywood!

Azra, a Pakistani woman living in Toronto, is worlds apart from her conservative Muslim mother. When her father suddenly dies on a trip home to Pakistan, Azra finds herself on a Bollywood-inspired journey through memories, both real and imagined, from her mother’s youth in Karachi to her own coming-of-age in rural Canada.

The film explores the complexities between then and now, a tussle many diaspora families are all too familiar with. What sets this movie apart is its refusal to stick to the beaten path.

Deadline Hollywood

The film remains pleasing across its different decades and drawn similarities, its emotional story emboldened by the color palette of a shelf full of saris.
