A merry mash up of sisterly affection, parental disappointment and bold action, Polite Society follows martial artist-in-training Ria Khan (Priya Kansara), who believes she must save her older sister Lena (Rita Aryu) from her impending marriage.
After enlisting the help of her friends, Ria attempts to pull off the most ambitious of all wedding heists in the name of independence and sisterhood.
Written and directed by Nida Manzoor (creator of We Are Lady Parts), Polite Society punches the genre etiquette book out the window to deliver a fun film that blends Bollywood splendor and British wryness!
"The pinballing plot is constantly surprising, and both Kansara and Arya sparkle in this kickass celebration of sisterly bonds" —Wendy Ide, Observer
"A fusion of British wit, Kung Fu action movies, and Bollywood...and a very sweet celebration of sisterhood." —Claudia Puig, FilmWeek
