Jadoo

3

A spicy rivalry simmers between two brothers

Jadoo is a tale of two brothers (Harish Patel, Kulvinder Ghir) – both ace Indian chefs – whose “spicy shitstorm” of a fall-out culminates in them ripping the family recipe book in half: one sibling gets the starters, the other the main courses.
 
Can Raja’s (Patel) daughter Shalini (Amara Karan) reunite them for her upcoming wedding?
 
Based on writer/director Amit Gupta’s (Resistance) Leicester upbringing, this is steeped in affection and warmth, aiming not for big laughs but a natural, jovial family dynamic.
 
A pity, then, that it’s let down by some erratic, repetitive plotting.
