    • Synopsis
    • Nishan, a young Sikh, reaches Paris in search of political refuge. He has lost everything he had possessed in his country, except his sense of humour and imagination.
      Nishan starts by selling cheap Indian food in Paris : the first recipe being the invention of fake credentials for the fake cook ! Soon, Nishan declares himself to be “The Maharaja of Indian Cuisine”. And so starts rolling Nishan’s kitchen on wheels called “One Dollar Curry”, with his inventive chicken curry and his eccentric look !
      With little help from Nathalie, a young TV journalist, Nishan’s imagination explodes: he cooks up an entirely new identity, stealing recipes, improvising dishes, inventing a fake lineage of Indian Chefs..
      Just as Nathalie and Nishan are getting closer, Yamini, his stunning Indian fiancée, arrives in Paris...
