Happy-go-lucky, underachieving, wanna-be rapper Vinny is dismayed to learn that his favorite ex-girlfriend Rina is planning to marry his smarmy arch-nemesis. Determined to disrupt the wedding as well as fund the dreams of his family and friends, he and his band of neighborhood pals concoct a plan to steal Rina’s dowry jewels from her father’s supermarket safe. But can this motley crew actually pull off a heist in this feel-good love letter to Indian-American culture that‘s reminiscent of Wes Anderson’s Bottle Rocket? Shot in vibrant, saturated color in the Little India neighborhood of Los Angeles, this lighthearted and fun film is big on charm, quirky characters, good-natured humor, and overflowing with scrappy, indie spirit.
