There's Something About Simmy
Simmy is an “imported” Indian bride whose marriage isn’t off to a good start. Her husband Raj runs away on their wedding night, leaving Simmy alone with her crazy new family. A community conscious mother-in-law, a diabetic granddad obsessed with biscuits and Mindy, her neurotic sister in law. Not allowed to leave the house in case the Aunties become suspicious, she regrets ever setting foot in the UK. When her brother-in-law arrives back at home, an unexpected love story starts to unfold, hidden from the prying community. Will Harry and Simmy confront the community living in a time warp?
