Deepa Mehta, one of our country’s most celebrated and well-regarded filmmakers, steps into an entirely new genre in her latest cinematic venture, Beeba Boys. We never would’ve expected the director of Water and Midnight's Children to take up purchase in the crime genre, but we couldn’t be more excited to see Deepa directing well-dressed gunslingers making terrible life choices.
Beeba Boys follows Jeet Johar (Randeep Hooda), a guarded, ruthless gangster within the very real criminal underground populated by second- and third-generation Indian immigrants on Canada’s west coast. As Jeet competes with rival gangs for an increasingly shrinking turf, the single father and dutiful son is forced to violently demand respect, ensuring the Beeba Boys’ continued survival in Vancouver.
Deepa Mehta’s Beeba Boys, which hits theatres October 16, also stars Waris Ahluwalia (The Darjeeling Limited, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Paul Gross (this year’s Hyena Road), Sarah Allen, and Ali Momen.
