A slice of bicultural life in New Zealand - Hindu and Kiwi served up in the wine country environment of Hawke's Bay. The story revolves around the various cultural differences and serious matters of those differences being exposed and examined, mostly with a sense of humour. The Kiwis are introduced to various Hindu social conventions such as `mother in law rules' and the visiting Hindus are introduced to outspoken children, all while the Kiwi wife is about to have it out with the arrogant Hindu mother-in-law. This low budget family-made production tries hard, but fails on a number of levels. I am left feeling that with greater financial assistance, many of the shortcomings might have been avoided, but that is often the nature of low budget filming.

Censor Rating: PG - Review rating: C-
