Tandoori Nights - The Complete Series 1 & 2
Jimmy Sharma (Jaffrey) is making a comfortable living running upscale Indian restaurant The Jewel in the Crown - until one of his ex-waiters opens rival outlet The Far Pavilions right across the street. The new place may be downmarket, with flock wallpaper and chips on the menu, but Jimmy's takings soon take a hit.
Jimmy is both supported and given the runaround by his feisty daughters Asha (Rita Wolf) and 'Bubbly' (Shelley King), who in turn are watched over by a domineering Gran (Zohra Sehgal) whose dearest wish is of course to marry each of them off to a suitable boy.
Created by prolific writer, producer and activist Farrukh Dhondy, and producer and co-founder of Picture Palace Films, Malcolm Craddock, the series addresses provocative issues around sexual and racial equality, and takes a wry look at interracial tensions between London's Indian and Bangladeshi communities, sassy, politicised Asian women, mixed-race relationships and grasping business methods.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
