Pyar Actually

Pyar Actually

From the producer of Miss Meena & the Masala Queens and The Deranged Marriage, Rifco Studio presents a sparkling new comedy by Sukh Ojla.

Polly has a reliable husband, two bright children, a well-paid job at the council and detached house with a double garage. She’s got it all. She may not be living the life she dreamed of back when she was a teenager, but who does?

Bali is a successful businessman. Loving his jet set lifestyle he swore he'd never return to the small town he grew up in. So why is he back? Is it too late for second chances? And is love, actually, all you need?

Sukh Ojla is part of the Rifco Associate programme, set up to provide support and guidance to British Asian artists in creating original and new work.

Written by Sukh Ojla
Directed by Pravesh Kumar
