Here’s all you need to know ahead of Thursday’s broadcast of the comedy film, Keeping Up with The Kandasamys.
Love and rivalry
Directed and co-written by Durban filmmaker Jayan Moodley, Keeping Up with the Kandasamys is a film about love and rivalry.
Sworn enemies and overbearing mothers, Jennifer Kandasamy (Jailoshini Naidoo) and Shanti Naidoo (Maeshni Naicker) join forces to keep their romantically involved children apart.
Chatsworth, stand up!
This hilarious film takes place in a large township in South Africa called Chatsworth.
People of Chatsworth, give yourselves a round of applause!
All hail Keeping up with the Kandasamys!
Keeping Up with the Kandasamys is the first South African Indian film to be screened widely in cinemas. It also featured in film festivals in North America and received praise from global critics.
A Glimpse into the Indian lifestyle
The film gives us a glimpse into the lifestyle and subculture of modern-day Indian South Africans.
Get ready to laugh out loud, yes, even during awkward scenes!
