Rewatching this back home in Bombay in the sweltering heat felt strangely appropriate. I think I had forgotten just how plain fun this movie is. Every character is just so unique and so colorful and yet, everyone feels completely authentic. Love the soundtrack, the cast, the cinematography and just about everything. Danny Aiello is particularly fantastic. It’s constantly engaging and entertaining and yet, it’s nuanced and challenging throughout. Bonus points because this time around, I watched it with mom and she loved it too.

Grade: B
