A few words...Buddhadev runs one of the finest Indian restaurants in London called Spice 6. One day attractive Nina returns the Hyderabadi Zafrani Pulav claiming it was incorrectly prepared with too much sugar. Buddhadev is insulted, because so far none of his dishes has gone back to the kitchen. When Nina sends the Hyderabadi Zafrani Pulav prepared by herself in the correct way, a romance between the 64 year old Buddhdev and the 34 year old Nina commences. When Nina and Buddhadev go to India, they tell Nina's father that they want to marry. Nina's father is shocked, because Buddhadev is 6 year older than him. A fanatic follower of Gandhi's Nina's father decides to refrain from eating and drinking until Nina has split with Buddhdev.
