Bhaji on the Beach is an entertaining drama about nine Indian women from Birmingham, England, who are thrown together on an outing to the Blackpool seaside. The feminist tour guide has her hands full with three generations to handle.

Two teenagers are just out for fun. Ginder, a beautiful woman with her young son, is trying to escape an abusive husband while Hashida, a premed student, has just discovered that she's pregnant by her black boyfriend. The sari-clad elders in the group just don't know what to make of the sexual problems of these younger women.

Gurinder Chadha has done a fine job directing this unusual slice-of-life drama which, like My Beautiful Launderette, portrays a subculture in Britain.
