Mississippi Masala

29th January 2006

Mississippi Masala was released in 1992 on Columbia TriStar Home Home Entertainment. It was made by Mira Nair Films and rated R for sensuality and language. I watched it in a film class during my first year of college.

Mississippi Masala is about African American Demetrius (Denzel Washington), and an Indian woman, Mina (Sarita Choudhury). This intercultural relationship draws out the anger of their families and communities. They find a way to be togther but they have to overcome a lot of negative attitudes in the process.

While I don’t consider this a classic (I never did watch it a second time) if you happen to see it in your video or DVD rental store, I think it is worth watching once.
