A drab clash of cultures as a Canadian couple relocate to Delhi

Cooking with Stella review

Don’t be fooled by the title – there’s nary a culinary tip to be found in this misjudged culture-collision-com.

A Canadian couple relocate to Delhi after she, a diplomat, gets a new job. Chef Michael’s left to play house hubbie, and bonds with housekeeper Stella (played with sly grit by Seema Biswas).

Once it becomes clear Stella’s pilfering from her employers, the cosy Upstairs, Downstairs dynamic gives way to more serious, less successful, drama.

Biswas aside, performances are uninspired and director Dilip Mehta mars his third act with a moralising ending that’s neither plausible or earned.

What events, what experiences, what associations should we crowd into those last hours as mortal timberland 3 eyes boat beings? HYD
