Home is where the heart is in Atlanta’s movie “India Sweets and Spices”:
The new comedy “Sweets and spices from India” was filmed here in the Atlanta metro area, but is set in the upper crust community of Ruby Hill, New Jersey. It’s a city where foreigners are treated like foreigners, and insiders always play by the rules.
For writer-director Geeta Malik, Ruby Hill is a very real place.
“The idea came from my own childhood,” says Malik. “I grew up in Aurora, Colorado, in sort of an island Indian community. And my mom called these parties ‘Desi therapy,’ which, Desi is someone from your homeland. So everyone got together. and ate his own food and had our own clothes and we would feel very warm and comforted in this community. But as I got older I realized that there was also a lot of backbiting and gossip; there was a lot of drama in it. behind the scenes.
The drama in India Sweets and Spices begins when college student Alia – played by Sophia Ali – returns to Ruby Hill for the summer. Romance blossoms, family secrets are revealed, and Alia must balance her own independence with her family’s expectations.
“I identify with Alia in many ways for this reason,” says Ali. “She’s obviously that rebellious character, especially in her family. That’s kind of how people see her. And I’ve always felt that way all my life, you know? I wanted to be an actor!”
Still, whatever domestic drama unfolds onscreen, Malik says there was none behind the camera, thanks to a smooth filming experience in so-called “Southern Hollywood.”
“I loved Atlanta. I had a blast when I was there,” says Malik. “The talent pool was so big, there were amazing supporting actors that we got from the city, and it was just a really movie-friendly city. Everyone was incredibly knowledgeable and incredibly engaged. so loved filming in Atlanta. Would be back in a heartbeat. “
India Sweets and Spices opens in select theaters Friday, November 19, including the Springs Cinema & Taphouse in Sandy Springs. Click on here for more information on the film.
