| Brilliant cast and writing makes you forget the clichés!
If you have a to see a feel-good movie this year, make it this one. The all-star ensemble cast is a who's-who of British greats: Dame Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie and Ronald Pickup, augmented by the relentlessly energetic Dev Patel. The plot, such as it is, is based around a bunch of Brit pensioners who, for varying reasons, end up in a raj-relic hotel in Jaipur as long stay guests. While the standard clichés of the "foreigner in India, initially struggling with the dust and flies and poverty and noise and finally embarking of a successful journey of self-discovery, after accepting India for what it is and going with the flow" genre are all present, it is the performances and the dialogue that make this movie work. Dench and Wilkinson are consummate practitioners of their art and you can see why; Maggie Smith, Nighy and the rest are exceptional as well. Fantastic!
