Can only say that it was a very funny movie with very good acting.
Myron Roth
The movie captures a flavour of Indian-UK mixture, in a pleasing way, without any supercilious or racial overtones.
Dr. S. J. Sidhva
This wonderful little movie will make you smile, laugh, and will also make you book a vacation to London.

This little gem of a movie never struck it big. It has gentle humour, with no overt vulgarity, but with just the right touch of fun, leaving you with a warm feeling all over. Victor Banerjee as Ram Das & Warren Mitchell as I Q Patel are superb, particularly the latter. The music is amazingly perfect, with little theme music for each character. The movie captures a flavour of Indian-UK mixture, in a pleasing way, without any supercilious or racial overtones. All in all, a rare gem. I wish there could have been a sequel.

Foreign Body is a sexy, sassy comedy about a fake physician in London who specializes in a very different kind of bedside manner.
Victor Banerjee, the India-born star of A Passage to India, stars in Foreign Body a unique British Comedy of errors. Based on the novel by Roderick Mann. He plays a jobless immigrant from Calcutta, Banerjee steals money from his own father in order to get to the UK . There he makes contact with his cousin Warren Mitchell, who arranges for him to get a job as a bus conductor. But when he begins to pursue a pretty white woman, Banerjee loses his job because of the girl's influential father. His luck changes radically when he performs mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on a bus accident victim, whereupon he is mistaken for a doctor by friendly model Amanda Donohoe (liar of the white worm). Donohoe talks up the skills of this "new Indian doctor", and before he knows what has hit him, Banerjee is head physician to the Prime Minister of England--with virtually every woman in the land vying for his services in bed! Never letting on where it is heading next. Trevor Howard plays the veteran physician who lends Das his expertise along with a vibrating couch!

a very funny 'bit of fluff' comedy,
victor Bannerjee does a competent job.
Note this is from a viewing some 15 years ago I bought a copy on Amazon back in July, I am still waiting for it!

I watched this one in 1988 on a tape. Somehow, the title of this movie was "hotel calcutta". I think people misclassified this as some kind of soft porn. However, it is one of the most poignantly funny movie. Typical British attitudes and points. It is really funny with quite serious acting. I recommend it to be watched with your partner.

Really enjoyed this movie. It was a very pleasant surprise and well worth the time to watch. I lived in London for many years and some of the humor made sense.
