Director Gurinder Chadha of Bend It Like Beckham fame is back with a romantic comedy thriller, It’s A Wonderful Afterlife, starring Shabana Azmi and US-based actor Sendhil Ramamurthy. The film will release in India in English and its dubbed Hindi version, tentatively titled, Hai Mar Jawan.


Presented by Indian Films in association with Studio 18, the film is a humorous account of a London-based Punjabi mother’s desperate measures to get her fat daughter married to a tall, dark and handsome hunk.

The film will release in the UK, where Gurinder is better known for her films like Bride And Prejudice and Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging, on April 21. The UK launch will happen through two red carpet premieres, in London on April 12 and a regional premiere in Birmingham on April 14.




  1. Seems Gurinder Chadha is not up to mark this time.
    Her Bend it like Beckham was greeted well among the reviews and even the audience. But Its a wonderful Afterlife now that is released in English and simultaneously in Hindi language in India, has met lukewarm response. Film sites like FilmyTown too have given it just 3 stars.
    Like they say, not all attempts do meet equal success.
    Better luck next time Gurinder Chadha.
