Catch the Red Carpet Premiere of Gurinder Chadha’s ‘It’s A Wonderful Afterlife‘.
In typical Gurinder Chadha vein, Its a Wonderful Afterlife is a comic fairy tale look at the life and times of a Punjabi Mother-Daughter duo in West London.
The mother (played by Shabana Azmi) is perpetually worried about getting her rather healthy daughter married into a good family. Her pressing worry sparks off a series of amusing encounters with prospective suitors. In comes Detective D.R. Murthy who is newly appointed in the neighborhood to investigate a series of serio-comic murders. How the mother goes about fixing her daughter with this quintessential tall, dark and handsome man forms the crux of the story.
Billed as a A Big Fat Greek Wedding-meets-Shaun Of The Dead, the narrative of the feature is sprinkled with a generous dose of the idiosyncrasies of a loud North-Indian family in the heart of the stiff British upper-lip city.
