Bhaji on the Beach, DVD  DVD



Landmark debut feature co-written and directed by Gurinder Chadha.

The story concerns a day trip to Blackpool by a disparate group of Indian women from the Saheli Asian Women's Group based in Birmingham.

The group includes Ginder (Kim Vithana), who suffers domestic abuse at the hands of her husband and refuses to stand by him, unmarried teenage mum-to-be Hashida (Sarita Khajuria), shunned by her elders for her relationship with a black man, and respectable shop assistant Asha (Lalita Ahmed), who escapes into a fantasy world from her drab day-to-day existence when she is charmed by a local English actor.

Also along for the day is a middle-class Bombay woman of tasteless glamour and a couple of boy-crazy teenage girls.
