Chutney Popcorn is a humorous look at the meaning of family and friends from a different perspective.
When Sarita discovers she can't have children, Reena finds that for the first time in their lives, she, Reena, can do something her perfect sister Sarita can't: get pregnant! Obsessed with helping her sister and winning her mom's approval to go ahead with her plan, Reena decides she'll have the baby and then give it to her sister and brother-in-law. Now she just needs to convince her commitment-phobic girlfriend to go along with the idea.
With Indian traditions on the one hand and '90s New York City values on the other, Chutney Popcorn is a provocative new comedy that shows you can find family somewhere between the two.
