Product Description

TOUCH OF PINK is a comic clash of cultures, values, and sexuality. Alim (THE GURU's Jimi Mistry) seems to have it all: a great career, a handsome boyfriend, and a personal guide in the spirit of Cary Grant (Kyle MacLachlan from TV's "Sex and the City"). And living thousands of miles from his mother Nuru (Suleka Mathew) and his family in Toronto, he can keep his lifestyle hidden. But when Alim's conservative mom pays an impromptu visit, with the intention of dragging her son to a big fat monsoon wedding and getting him matched up with a "nice girl," the spirit of Cary Grant suddenly becomesindispensable.

Customer Reviews

Kyle McLaughlin was wonderful as 'Cary Grant'.
R. Hildebrand
Ultimately, the film is about family, love, the search for acceptance, and the struggle to live life honestly, whether gay or straight.
Carlos Emilio
I recommend getting a Touch of Pink if you'd like a touch of fun and a good evening at the movies.

Think Bend it Like Beckham with a La Cage Aux Folles twist, then you'll get a Touch of Pink.

In a fun nod to the comedies of the 1950's, with modern implications, Touch of Pink combines a culture clash with a generation clash, with an end result that's predicatable but fun. Written by Ian Rashid, Touch of Pink stars Jimi Mistry as the hapless protaginist Alim, forced to throw his life, and his saucy boyfriend played by Kristen Holden-Reid, back into the closet when his noisy Muslim mother decides to visit him in England. Alim's invented an imaginary friend in the form of Cary Grant, played refreshingly by Kyle McLaughlin, who offers advice through the film, not all of it good.

What follows is fairly predictable, and anyone can see the ending from a mile away. But still, the journey getting there is a wonderful ride. Rashid's script is witty, and several lines earn a good hearty out-loud laugh. The performances are sharp, especially Suleka Matthew, who's obviously way too young to be Alim's mother, but delivers her lines with zing and zest and a great deal of fun.

I recommend getting a Touch of Pink if you'd like a touch of fun and a good evening at the movies.

Format: DVD
Ian Iqbal Rashid is a sensitive director who is bringing the two poles of Indian Bollywood and Indie 'Hollywood' closer together. In TOUCH OF PINK he has taken the best of both and created a tender, charming, warmly funny tale of the struggle of a Pakistani young cameraman Alim (Jimi Mistry) in coming to grips with his sexuality. Yes, the story has been done many times, but rarely with the genuine tenderness Rashid has found.

Alim, a transplanted Pakistani youth born in Kenya, raised in Toronto, Canada and living in London, has a guardian angel in the form of Cary Grant (Kyle MacLachlan) who has replaced his father he never knew and who is his constant companion in his flat in London - giving advice Alim wants to hear while acting as a curtain to shield Alim from the more difficult facts of his being an openly gay male. Alim is in love with Giles (Kristen Holden-Ried) and they live a happy life together - until Alim's mother Nuru (Suleka Mathew) comes to pay them a visit.

Nuru has lived alone since her husband's death, always longing for a fantasy life of fleeing the restrictions of Indian culture to become a star like Doris Day. Her life is one of frustration and her hopes for something better seem to rest on her only son Alim's getting married so that Nuru can compete with her sister currently planning an extravagant wedding for her own son Khaled.

Once in London, Nuru finds Alim cold, living with a British man, and finds her hopes for a possible wedding quashed. Giles takes the reluctant Nuru for a shopping and dancing day and wins her heart. But when Nuru finally discovers Alim's secret, she leaves London, hurt, sad, and despondent. Giles is angry with Alim's harsh handling of their relationship and leaves Alim to the sole companionship of his Cary Grant.

"Touch of Pink" is a charming and entertaining story. Many new gay films aspire to leave behind the stereotypes, and dig deep into their respective subjects. Yet, I find this film leaves behind most, but keeps just enough of the stereotypes to make it enjoyable. The film doesn't aspire to be just another version of reality, however. It is a story, with make-believe movie-star friends, family, love, and cross-cultural clashes. "Touch of Pink" is all of this without high melodrama, and without over-the-top steam scenes. It is a good watch, and a good laugh.

Touch of pink has a lot of different elements happening, such as culture clash, gay romance/infidility, coming out, and so on. The film is actually quite enjoyable as dramedy, even though it's geared towards being more of a comedy. While it's very pleasing visually, considered the production and wardrobe and music are very good, it's the main characters that make the film more affecting. I very much enjoyed the performance from Suleka Mathew who is made to look older to be Jimi Mistry's mother, and she steals the scenes effortlessly. Having worked with Canadian actor Kris Holden Reid in Never Forget(2007 release), I was quite surprised and taked by his willingness to tackle so many gay love scenes and nudity. He plays the love interest of Jimi, but his character is not so monogamous but emotionally committed. I do like his British accent, but I find his mannerism is too straight looking. That comes from Jimi Mistry as well, his appearance and portrayal is somewhat wooden and it's not the properly subtle gay, even his character is supposed to be closeted. The emotional range of his performance is there, and that was quite touching at times. Finally, I must say that while it's just a supporting role, Kyle Maclachlan did a marvellous job at impersonating Gary Grant. The voice and mannerism, plus the right makeup, hair, and wardrobe on him. I thought George Clooney was the only one who looks very much like Grant, I guess I am wrong.

This movie captures the pains involved in coming out in a very touching, and for the most part amusing way. I highly reccomend this movie.
