Jadoo means 'Magic' in Hindi. The film directed by Amit Gupta tells a story of two brothers, Raja and Yaga, both wonderful chefs, who fall out so catastrophically that they tear the fabled family recipe book in half; one brother gets the starters and the other gets the main courses. They set up rival restaurants on opposite sides of the road. Unfortunately, both brothers can now only cook half of the perfect traditional Indian meals; this drives both of them crazy. This is a delicious comedy about food, family feuds, relationships and love’s trials.
