Set in England, India and Ireland, this is a comic tale of fish out of water. When her boorish father dies, fat, unsophisticated Mousumi is sent from India to her cosmopolitan relations in London. For the glamour of the western world, she leaves behind both her forlorn mother and an amorous shopkeeper. On arrival, she is met by the Majumdar family: Prakash - a doctor with too much heart, great cook and man-about-the-house; Tuhina - a successful investment banker and indulgent mother; and Darshini - a nonchalant eighteen-year-old, audacious coin-flipper and possessor of ethereal beauty. Such an offbeat household terrifies Mousumi - how will she fit in? Can she meet their high standards? And will she begin to question the life she has known? This is a witty social comedy of cultural misunderstanding and people who simply don't get on.
