Jess Bhamra (Parminder K. Nagra) wants two things–to become a great football player like David Beckham and to find a nice boyfriend. And she soon gets a chance at both when she befriends Jess (Keira Knightley), joins her football team, and falls for the coach, Joe (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers). However, her traditional Indian family frowns on the entire scenario, instead encouraging her spend time in the kitchen learning recipes for aloo gobi and chapatti. And it doesn’t help that Jess also has a crush on Joe. Combining good-natured humour with football, drama, and romance, Gurinder Chadha’s BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM is a winning comedy with heart.
