In making Kinks the writer & film-makers have engaged on the somewhat challenging task of presenting a comedy based on the principle of multi-cultural issues. It uses as its basis the relationship of two sisters and builds its story from there. This is bold for a number of reasons and particularly as multi-cultural story-lines may inadvertently cause offence to some, but also because it is a comedy and may therefore to offending instead of amusing. The latter may be even more so in the context of this being an international release and having to cross borders. After all humour is not always understood over a wide geographical area, what may amuse an audience in one country can pass over in another. This movies deserves its stars perhaps for no other reason than having (in my view at least) having achieved the objectives discussed above. In addition it is an engaging and entertaining film that pulls at the heart strings: It has entertainment value on a number of levels, it is not just that it is funny. It offers an engaging story and it certainly worth watching
