Art Malik in NYC

Why Mr. Malik, blazer and turtleneck AND earring, eh?

Well, on screen at least. 

He was Hari Kumar in the Beeb’s Jewel in the Crown.  Later he went on to do the best book-on-tape I’ll ever own (The Moor’s Last Sigh), and since then is almost never seen in anything in the U.S. (let’s not mention that terrorist turn in a certain movie with Aaaahnold the Governator).

Next week, I’ll finally get my Art Malik fix, albeit a small one.  The Indo-American Arts Council’s Film Festival kicks off next week (more on that very soon), and nestled in there, among 50+ feature and short films, is Pratibha Parmar’s Nina’s Heavenly Delights

The movie promises to be a tale of love set in Glasgow.  One half of the couple is Nina Shah, the daughter of an Indian restaurant owner, who returns after her father’s death to sort out a lot of things, and participate in a Best of the West curry competition.

If me and the ex- had married?  Nah... 

That’s an interesting sub-set of the desi community I never thought much about before: Indian - Scots mix.  Like my favorite cold weather apertif: a glass of Knockando, neat, with some moong dal.

All well and good, but I have one burning question:  does Art wear a kilt in this movie?
