FOUR SAMOSAS

LAUGH | US CINEMA

US 2022, 80 min, Director: Ravi Kapoor

Set in suburban L.A.’s “Little India,” Ravi Kapoor’s quirky heartfelt indie caper comedy follows Vinesh, aka Vinny (Venk Potula), a wannabe hip-hop artist who works in a sari shop by day. Aimless and heartbroken, he’s never gotten over Rina (Summer Bishil), the girlfriend who dumped him three years ago. Now she’s about to marry someone else, but Vinny is determined to win her back. Gathering a ragtag trio of accomplice pals, including a Bollywood superfan (Nirvana Patnaik), an amateur journalist (Sharmita Bhattacharya), and a snack-happy computer nerd (Sonal Shah), Vinny targets the grocery store owned by Rina’s dad for a heist. The plan? Swipe her dowry diamonds from the store safe and ransom them back to him. The logic? Maybe not exactly airtight. The result? A sweet, misguided adventure hilariously touching on Indian-American identity, self-worth, and second chances at love.
