Polite Society (2023)

Nida Manzoor directs Priya Kansara, Ritu Arya and Nimra Bucha in the British comedy where a British-Pakistani teenager employs her pals and her martial arts to stop her sister’s suspect arranged marriage.

Heard good things about this but it felt very much like a half-hearted Edgar Wright rip-off with teatime kids’ show acting and very basic fight sequences. Colourful costumes, some choice needle drops but I wouldn’t rush to revisit or recommend.
