Mad, Sad and Bad

Mad, Sad & Bad

Mad, Sad & Bad is a thirtysomething comedy about an endearingly dysfunctional family and group of friends whose personal lives are continuously messed up by their own selfish needs and neuroses.

Atul is a sitcom writer who despises the work that everybody else loves. Rashmi lives at home with her mother, craving a life of her own but dreading all that goes with it. And Hardeep is a psychiatrist who can diagnose everyone’s problems but his own. Award-winning writer and director Avie Luthra turns a sharp observational eye towards an ensemble of often extreme and complex characters, played by a talented cast that includes Meera Syal (The Kumars, Anita & Me), Nitin Ganatra (Bride & Prejudice, Shifty) and Andrea Riseborough (Happy-Go-Lucky, Margaret Thatcher: The Long Walk to Finchley).

Mad, Sad & Bad is nominated for the Michael Powell Award for Best New British Feature Film at Edinburgh International Film Festival 2009
