Bend it Like Beckham

It is finally being released, the British Asian Blockbuster, Gurinder Chadha's Bend it Like Beckham will be released in Washington D.C. tomorrow. I saw the film last during a screening conducted by the South Asian Journalists Association, and I couldn't stop laughing. The film is by no means rough, edgy, or tremendously throught provoking, but it is funny, witty, and light-hearted and really able to cross cultures. While some of the jokes are really Brit-oriented, this is a great film to see with your family. And to all the Desis who have already seen it on pirated copy, first stop going to the Indian stores and buying/renting pirated copies, you are only adding to criminal activity, and Second, the lack of revenue for the director makes it seem that people are not willing to support Desi oriented films. So go out and see the film. The Post's Desson Howe has a nice story on the film entitled "David Beckham, Scoring a Goal At the Box Office", which can be found here.
