Vinny (Venk Potula) is an aspiring rapper who works in his parents’ shop where he sells saris. He’s always coming up with new rhymes, although seeing as he has nowhere to go and nobody to hear them, he feels his life isn’t going anywhere. He has friends such as Zak (Nirvan Patnaik) who dreams of becoming a Bollywood star and his little cousin, Anjali (Sharmita Bhattacharya) who has a wild imagination and is known to spit rhymes of her own, but life is simple and dull.
Then one day Vinny hears about Rina (Summer Bishil) and that she’s about to be engaged to Sanjay (Karan Soni) and he loses his mind. After all, they dated for two and a half years and he thinks that Rina really was his one true love – the one that got away.
So, Vinny hatches a plan to steal the diamond ring that Sanjay plans to give Rina so that their future will never happen. All they must do is break into the safe of the grocery store owned by Rina’s father, Mr. Juneja (Tony Mirrcandani). It’s just a good thing that he doesn’t remember Vinny, right?
Four Samosas is a quirky comedy from writer/director Ravi Kapoor which follows four friends as they try to make Vinny’s dreams come true. However, as with most fast-paced comedies, there’s a lot of things that get in the way between Vinny and his goal, although the journey is what makes it so good.
Perhaps owing a visual nod to Wes Anderson, director Kapoor does lots to keep the film going and there are plenty of laugh out loud moments. Things such as Zak’s fully realised Bollywood dreams, Anjali’s wild plans and an epic rap/dance battle will keep audiences smiling.
All the cast do a great job, particularly Potula as the effortlessly charming Vinny who perhaps bites off more than he can chew. There are also some hilarious performances from Bhattcharya who seems to know no restraint in her on stage person.
Those looking for something to make them smile and remind them of the joys of a simple story well told will surely enjoy what Kapoor and his crew have to offer.
