All In Good Time

From the archive

This film was last shown on 21 June 2012

A hugely warm-hearted comic tale adapted for the big screen from the Olivier award winning play Rafta Rafta by Ayub Khan Din (East is East.) Centred around a close knit, larger-than-life British Asian family living in present day Bolton, All in Good Time stars Reece Ritchie (The Lovely Bones) and Amara Karan (The Darjeeling Limited) as Atul Dutt and his young bride Vina for whom the first taste of married life is proving far from straightforward.

Harish Patel (Run Fatboy Run) and Meera Syal (Anita & Me) reprise their roles from the original play as Atul's parents, Eeshwar and Lopa. The wedding feast is over and Atul's father's drunken bhangra dancing and arm-wrestling has robbed the happy couple of the wedding limelight. When it's finally time for bed, Atul is so woefully inhibited by the proximity of his parents, not to mention his brother's childish pranks, that his beautiful virgin bride remains just that.

When their hard-earned honeymoon is cancelled the day after the wedding, the newlyweds have no choice but to return to the Dutt household and set up home there.

As prying family members and gossipy neighbours conspire to keep the couple from consummating their marriage, Atul and Vina start to panic. But secrets don't stay that way for long in the Dutt family....

Directed by Nigel Cole (Calendar Girls, Made In Dagenham) and produced by Oscar-nominated Andy Harries (The Queen) and Suzanne Mackie (Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots).


Please note: the screening at 11am on Monday 18 June is a Kino Bambino parent and baby screening.
