Originally a mini-series on England’s BBC, The Buddha of Suburbia (1993) is a laughter-and-tears affair set in the polyglot cultural melting pot that was London and its outskirts in the early 1970s. Pakistani immigrants were an exotic and spicy novelty in the middle-class neighborhoods of the day, and a teenage Pakistani boy doesn’t know if he is being blessed or cursed when the leading ladies of his borough take up his father as a meditation-teaching guru. The white-skinned ladies are bodily gracious to the swarthy chanting man, thanking him with their naked charms for sharing the stress-reducing secrets of his native culture. The kid hopes some of Dad’s luck will rub off on him. Fast Forward to: (2:10) Red of head and darkest crimson of bush, streamlined tit-swinger Jemma Redgrave stands saluting with muff and mounds.
