I’m really excited about this new movie Today’s Special starring Aasif Mandvi, about ten years ago, he published a monologue book called Sakina’s Restaurant my HS drama teacher gave to me as a graduation gift. After reading the book, I fell in love with his cheeky sense of humor, he had a wide array of characters from an uptight boss to a struggling bus boy, each had their stories perfectly crafted by Mandvi. If you live in the San Francisco, the Bridge Theater is showing this movie, I would highly recommend going there because its a single screen (HUGE) and doesn’t have that sterile metreon feel to it.

In Today’s Special Samir (Aasif Mandvi) instead of following his dream of cooking up tantalizing tidbits at a French culinary school, he ends up at his father’s flailing Indian restaurant in Jackson Heights, New York. If you never been to Jackson Heights, it’s dubbed as the “Little India” of New York, but also has a very strong Bangladeshi & Pakistani community too. Samir’s father suffers a heart attack, leaving Samir, whose clueless about Indian cooking to run the restaurant. To keep himself from cracking up, Samir comes up with his own unique dishes with a little help from a least likely suspect, Akbar (Naseeruddin Shah) a taxi driver. The slicing and dicing antics between Shah, Mandvi and the rest of the cast is guaranteed to bring you comedy substance we ALL crave during the stressful holiday season.

Russell (Uncle Rush) Simmons (left) will be taking the “Politics of Love” soundtrack under his wing along with the POL music supervisor Craig Nobles (right). With Uncle Rush’s expertise, the soundtrack is going to be off the hook. I’ve always had a soft spot for soundtracks, take Bollywood for example the movie might be crap, but the music is good. That was a statement I used to hear from a lot of my friends “the movie sucked, but the music was good” haha. I have high hopes for “Politics of Love” as of now, Mallika seems to be having a lot of fun soaking it up in La La land.
