Jadoo-UK-Quad-PosterMaking its world debut out in Berlin back in the spring, Jadoo is just a few weeks away from arriving on our shores, and has its sights on becoming the best British-Asian comedy since Four Lions.

With its 6th September release date on our shores very much on the horizon, we’ve exclusively got the film’s new poster to share, which will hopefully be arriving on the Underground and in bus shelters soon.

JADOO, in cinemas, 6th Sept, is a British-made film set in Leicester, and tells the story of two brothers, Raja (Harish Patel – Run Fatboy Run) and Jagi (Kulvinder Ghir – Bend it Like Beckham). Both wonderful chefs, who fall out so catastrophically that in the climax of their dispute they rip the family recipe book in half: one brother gets the starters and the other gets the main courses. They set up rival restaurants, on opposite sides of the Belgrave Road in Leicester; one cooking starters and the other main courses, and refused to talk to one another.

A delicious foodie-comedy, JADOO’s secret ingredient is a delightful romantic twist, which sees Raja’s daughter Shalini (Amara Karan – The Darjeeling Limited), attempt to get the brothers talking again. She hatches a plan and asks them to work together to cook her a perfect Indian wedding banquet…but will she succeed?

Harish Patel (Run Fatboy Run) and Kulvinder Ghir (Bend It Like Beckham) star as the two chef brothers, with the great Amara Karan (The Darjeeling Limited) starring as the sister trying to reunite them, alongside Tom Mison (One Day), Madhur Jaffrey (Shakespeare Wallah), Ray Panthaki (Eastenders), Paul Bazely (Benidorm), and Adeel Akhtar (Four Lions).

Amit Gupta is behind the camera, directing from his own script. Gupta is making his sophomore feature with the film, having made his feature debut back in 2011 with Resistance, the award-winning film starring Andrea Riseborough, Michael Sheen, Iwan Rheon, and Kimberley Nixon.

Jadoo will be heading into UK cinemas on 6th September. To help make the wait a little easier, here’s the exclusive new poster, and the film’s trailer below.
