"★★★★ – borrows freely from everyone from Edgar Wright to Jordan Peele, but makes a winning concoction of its own" – Telegraph

“the sort of wildly audacious work that signifies a rising talent” – The Hollywood Reporter

This screening is one of our weekly Cinema Bambino films. These are exclusively designed for parents and carers with babies under 12 months old.

Premiering to critical acclaim at the Sundance festival, Nida Manzoor’s (We Are Lady Parts) debut feature is a gloriously outlandish genre fest – a coming of age comedy meets Bollywood action romp.

Teenage martial arts fan and aspiring stuntwoman Ria (Kansara) has an unbreakable bond with her sister, art school dropout Lena (Arya).

But when Lena gets engaged to Salim, the charming son of a wealthy family ruled by matriarch Raheela (Bucha), Ria makes it her mission to derail their relationship.
