Omid as his usual brilliant self!By a customer from Beddington , 18 Apr 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]This movie was a pleasure to watch!Religion and related subjects are taken so seriously these days, that for me it was just a breath of fresh air that someone had the brilliant idea to make a movie addressing the issue.Omid was brilliant as always, although he is at his best being funny. The very serious parts were believable but a little too theatrical and over the top. But the movie worked for me.With people in Britain becoming so over PC about everything it seems, it's really a necessity to make more movies like this. Being able to laugh at matters that we deem serious is important AND Healthy.Having said that, I noticed a few people get up and leave in the middle of the movie, no doubt 'offended' (why go and see the movie then?), still I guess some people were just not blessed with a sense of humour!I do hope they find a solution to their predicament: being able to laugh at oneself and at life is a concept to be upheld and applauded!

Based on the life of Aarif Gangat.By canopus (45 reviews) from Leicester , 06 Dec 2012So many reviewers have stated this, but what the hell. This is a story of a man raised in a muslim family. However, he eventually discovers he is actually a jew, but when he was a baby his jewish parents abandoned him so he was adopted by a loving muslim family. The film descends into much infantile behaviour as the confused man indulges all of his crude, arrogant and uncivilised behaviours, all the time not caring who he tramples over, belittles or insults. This film purports to be a work of fiction, but this little story did actually happen in real life (aka - Aarif Gangat). There is so much common ground between the character and the real life doppleganger Aarif Gangat. A classic example of art imitating life.
A different religion in people's eyes. (Amusing).By a customer , 30 Nov 2012I tried to watch this film some time ago,but could not get into it. Just watch it and I enjoyed it very much and would watch it again. I found it light hearted and funny. Although the film was fiction,there must be people out in this big world that go through this dilemma. Take a look at this film and laugh.
The InfedelBy a customer , 29 Nov 2012It was ok not all that a little boring for my liking but it was ok i guess could have been alot better
Great satireBy pada (14 reviews) , 20 Nov 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]David Badiel's genius comes across well in this cleverly written satire about religious stereotyping and how it could be misplaced in the most unusual of circumstances . Pad. A
