Axone – A Recipe for Disaster, Trailer:
Axone is a bittersweet comedy follows migrants in Delhi who are attempting to organise a wedding party, but soon find everything going wrong.
Echoing My Big Fat Greek Wedding, this original comedy romp finds a group of girlfriends from Assam and Meghalaya, north-eastern states in India, gathering in the back streets of Delhi to throw a secret wedding party for a soon-to-be bride. Terrorised by their rottweiler of a landlady and with their boyfriends utterly useless as help, the group’s already disorganised plans soon go further awry. As the women cook the traditional axone wedding stew (a pork stew with pungent local herbs), neighbours complain about its powerful smell. However, they are determined to prepare the aromatic dish. With the challenges brought on by cultural difference and the pressures of being migrants in a seemingly unfriendly city, is food and love enough to save the day?
