If you happen to come across “Basmati Blues” this weekend, or on some future late night when your clicker finger is particularly fidgety and you’re looking for something you haven’t seen before, trust me:
You’ve never seen anything like this.
I’m not saying you should see it. I’m just saying you’ve never seen anything like it.
You might not believe your eyes (or ears), but I am here to confirm for you that yes, “Basmati Blues” is a real film: a quasi-Bollywood musical starring Brie Larson as a guitar-strumming American scientist who journeys to India to spread the word about a genetically modified rice.
It’s wackier than it sounds.
Filmed more than four years ago, well before Larson’s Academy Award-winning turn in “Room,” Dan Baron’s romantic comedy/musical is only now getting a limited theatrical release and is available through video on demand as well.
