All in Good Time

#1 Post by yogi » Wed Apr 18, 2012 9:07 am

East is East writer Ayub Khan-Din returns with another funny, tender-hearted portrait of family strife. Based on his popular play Rafta, Rafta (itself inspired by Bill Naughtons 1960s classic All in Good Time), the film is set in Bolton where Atul and Vina are celebrating their marriage. However, a honeymoon spent with his parents was not part of their plans.

A breezy mixture of heartbreak and hilarity, All in Good Time also offers peerless performances from original stage stars Harish Patel and Meera Syal.

Saw this last night at the Trafford Centre thank to tickets given to me by Betty Botter. Thanks again. o/

Really enjoyed it. It's very East is East, but that's no bad thing, I'm sure fans of that will enjoy this.

I had to dash off before the cast Q&A last night, how was it?

Really enjoyed this last night, it was so funny.
The Q and A went on for what seemed like forever the actors were interesting but this man (no idea who he was) went on and on :X

I saw this last night at Trafford Centre thanks to Betty Botter for the tickets. o/

I really enjoyed it and found it very funny and would give it 8/10, reminded me very much of East is East, also made by the same production company. I liked that they actually filmed quite a bit on location in Bolton, as I used to live close to Bolton and quite a bit of it I still recognised. I was thinking as I watched it reminded me of another film in the 60s, not necessary the same, but in the same vein.

In the question and answer afterwards the producer explained the background of the film and the film was The Family Way with Hayley Mills and Hwyel Bennett and John Mills, which I remember watching in my youth. The Q&A was interesting, but just went on a tad too long for my liking, but nice that actual main stars were in attendance and not just production people who were at my last Q&A. The main actor was familiar to me also, been in a couple of movies and was most recently in White Heat on BBC2, 6 part series that finished the other week and I had enjoyed.

Saw this tonight at the Vue West End at a cast and crew screening, with a few competition winners thrown in for good measure. There was a drinks reception beforehand and I saw Meera Syal and her husband Sanjeev Bhaskar (yes, I had to look up the spelling). They all crammed with us into tiny screen 6, and canadian_turtle said she saw Marc Warren from Hustle sitting not too far from us.

Meera Syal plays the mother of the young man who has just married his young bride and moved her into his parent's home, which isn't exactly conducive for their love life. I think "gentle" is the best word to describe this sweet comedy. There were plenty of laughs, and even though it was quite predictable except maybe the final twist, it didn't matter, it was an enjoyable ride. It won't set the world on fire but it was a lovely warm-hearted film.

There was quite a bit of going to the loo during the film on account of all the free booze beforehand, but what really flummoxed me were the two women who came in an HOUR in and asked OH how long it had been running for, then stood chatting to decide what to do. Bloody rude and disruptive, if you ask me.

There were more drinks afterwards but I think you had to p*y for them. I wasn't really fussed anyway, but it was nice to see some more actors from the film mingling, and great seeing the turtle, valda and jeancomp. I couldn't remember where I had seen the young man (Reece Ritchie) before but he was both in Prince of Persia and The Lovely Bones.

8/10

Oh of course that's who he was!
Turtle and I were just leaving when I spotted Marc Warren eating popcorn downstairs with a hat on, in disguise probably. should have gone up and said hello but I'm too shy for that. I'll just stalk him by text :oops:

I enjoyed this film, a nice gentle story with some laughs and some sadness. The bride actually came and sat down in the cinema after Beate left so I told her I enjyed it and complimented her on her looks :P 8/10
preferred locations Shepherds Bush, Westfield, Notting Hill, Central London, Wimbledon, Islington, Wandsworth thanks

Oh! Was that her that sat in OH's seat? I came back for my left-behind bottle and saw someone sitting there but unfortunately it was too dark to see much and I was distracted anyway.
