Wooding’s film is an unexpectedly successful cross-fertilisation of down at heel East London chic and Asian musicals, with Bollywood-style musical routines coming magically alive in the most unlikely of places, from Leadenhall market to the local multiplex.

– BBC Films –

Any potential clash between the magic realism of Bollywood and the social realism of London's graffiti-covered streets is brushed away by sunny songs and extremely likeable performances.Empire

Family interference and culture clash threaten the romance between the offspring of rival clothiers in London.
