Film fans we have something very exciting in store for you! This Thursday sees the opening of the The Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival and we have three pairs of tickets to give away so that you too can attend the star-studded Red Carpet Gala screening. This year the festival opens with the UK Premiere of Umrika (Directed by Prashant Nair), the film that won this year's Sundance Audience Award winner. It's an uplifting, rights of passage tale about two brothers from a small village who have dreams of making it big in Umrika (America). Udai (Pratiek Babbar) is the eldest and adored by his hard-working mum. He leaves their hamlet on a bullock cart to pursue his dream after he says he has received an invitation to work in the US. 

Torn between pride and grief his mum waves him off. Months go by but there is no word from Udai, family pride turns to concern. Younger son Rama (Suraj Sharma, Life of Pi), shares the family’s increasing grief and then suddenly letters start to arrive. His parents cheer up again as amazing pictures of the USA fill their lives. All seems well until Rama discovers that the kindly local postman has forged the letters. Rama runs away from home to discover his brother’s true fate.
