The Bengaluru-set film, French Biriyani, which is out on Amazon Prime Video, revolves around an identity mix-up and a misplaced bag. The film has a lot in common with Delhi Belly (2011), though not to the extent of Abhinay Deo film.
The whole story revolves around the life of an autorickshaw driver (Danish Sait) and a French pharmaceutical (Sal Yusuf), an immigrant in Bengaluru. In the first of a series of never-ending mishaps, Simon played by Sal Yusuf ends up in Asgar’s (played by Danish Sait) auto when he is mistaken by a powerful don henchman who dies before ordering his adjutant to get a consignment picked from airport.
When you take out all about massive IT tech parks, malls, pubs, restaurants and traffic jams out of Bengaluru, you can relate the metropolitan city is diversity of cultures which rarely gets acknowledged in mainstream movies. “French Biriyani” pretty much attempts to narrate through its story, and it does a pretty decent job getting many things on point in its depiction. There’s nothing relating to finesse but painted with bright colors to pass off as a product that has just been manufactured. You can watch for the actors as they had done a notable job.
