India Sweets and Spices, written and directed by Geeta Malik, will draw plenty of comparisons to Crazy Rich Asians, especially since the film is from the same producers. While both reside in a rich world, the points of view and the plot are different. India Sweets and Spices uses a rich protagonist to tell a story that deals with the fire of youth and the weariness of age. This is also not the story of the white kid rebelling against their child. India Sweets and Spices is funny, chock-full of messy drama but has an underlying heart about topical issues.
