Bleecker Street has secured U.S. American rights to writer/director Geeta Malik’s new comedy, INDIA SWEETS AND SPICES, starring Sophia Ali, Manisha Koirala, Adil Hussain, Rish Shah, Deepti Gupta, and Ved Sapru.

The coming of age film tells the story of Alia Kapur (Sophia Ali) returns to her family’s posh suburban New Jersey home after a year away at college and upends their well-ordered life with her brash independence. After befriending Varun (Rish Shah), the handsome son of the new owners of the local Indian grocery, she invites his family to a dinner party where family secrets are revealed.

Alia’s surprise turns to rebellion when she uncovers secrets about both her parents that push her toward a daring and ultimately hilarious confrontation. INDIA SWEETS AND SPICES celebrates a young woman’s coming of age set against a lovingly framed glimpse of the life of an Indian American family.

Produced and financed by Madison Wells and SK Global Entertainment, and producers Naomi Despres (LIZZIE), Sidney Kimmel (HELL OR HIGH WATER), John Penotti (CRAZY RICH ASIANS) and Gigi Pritzker (THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE).
