Basmati Blues is an enchanting musical romantic comedy that will capture your heart. Oscar®-winner Brie Larson leads a wonderful ensemble cast as Dr. Linda Watt (Brie Larson), a sheltered but brilliant young scientist who is sent on a work trip to India. She is welcomed by almost everyone, and embraces a world she is unfamiliar with.
Linda is assigned a guide, an ambitious young bureaucrat (Saahil Sehgal) who immediately takes a liking to her. But when Linda meets Rajit (Utkarsh Ambudkar), a rebellious college student forced to drop out by lack of funds there’s instant chemistry! And through their playful antagonism, Linda’s eyes are ultimately opened to the fact she has unknowingly become part of a destructive plan against the farmers. When she and the villagers discover her company’s greedy agenda, they work together to fight against the abusive agricultural giant.
Pulsing with the vibrant colors and rhythms of India, Basmati Blues features original songs written for the film by global artists Pearl Jam, Kristian Bush of Sugarland, Goldspot, Dave Baerwald, and Sonu Nigam. Boasting a fantastic ensemble cast from East and West, Basmati Blues is a love letter to multiple eras of thrilling Bollywood cinema, heart-stirring musicals, and indelible classic Hollywood romantic comedies. At its heart, this film is about people who reach across cultures, fight against corporate greed, and find love.
