Lately, I have found myself watching culinary genius through a screen rather than through my mouth. The Hundred Foot Journey was charming, emotional, and mouth-watering. I was salivating for a good 50% of the film. The story was not very deep, but it was balanced between romance and drama. The characters are likable, especially that of Helen Mirren, Manish Dayal, and Om Puri.
I think if you have a love for French and Indian cuisine and/or on the pursuit of achieving the highest level of culinary excellence, this is the film for you. It might not linger with you for a long time, but it will be the perfect movie for a night just cozying it up with a glass of fine wine.
