Polite Society (12A)

Polite Society (12A)

★★★✭ British wit meets Bollywood, East is East, Kill Bill, and Jane Austen in this action-filled, often laugh out loud funny, comedy caper.  ~ ManchesterTheatres.

A merry mash-up of sisterly affection, parental disappointment and bold action, Nida Manzoor's action comedy Polite Society follows martial artist-in-training Ria Khan who believe she must save her older sister Lena from her impending marriage.

After enlisting the help of her friends, Ria attempts to pull off the most ambitious of all wedding heists in the name of independence and sisterhood.


★★★★ "A pointed satire of the marriage market from We Are Lady Parts’ Nida Manzoor delivers the laughs – and some full tilt comedy action - in this fun action comedy which mashes Jane Austen and the Chuckle Brothers." ~ The Guardian.

★★★★ It’s Kill Bill meets Sense and Sensibility. ~ Sunday Times.

★★★★ Films that are this much breathless fun come around infrequently. A spunky, spiky action comedy that lives on the charisma of its leading ladies and the innovative spirit of director Nida Manzoor. Sisterhood is eternal; weird movies must be protected at all costs. ~ Empire.

★★★★ A homegrown martial arts comedy that delivers a roundhouse kick to the heart. The directing debut of ‘We Are Lady Parts’ creator Nida Manzoor blends emotional honesty with stylistic verve."~ The Independent.

★★★★ This explosive, action-packed genre-blending delight fires on all cylinders and recalls Scott Pilgrim, Kill Bill, Get Out and The Matrix. ~ BBC.

★★★★ South Asian Scott Pilgrim energy that is heaps of fun. Martial arts combatting marital annihilation makes for a winning combination. ~ Little White Lies.

★★★★ Martial arts meets The Beano in Nida Manzoor's superb film debut. This British-Asian action-comedy borrows freely from everyone from Edgar Wright to Jordan Peele, but makes a winning concoction of its own. ~ The Telegraph.

★★★★ Still, even at its silliest, the gags have spiky wit, and the emotional heft of adolescence underpins the mayhem. ~ Financial Times.

★★★★ A charm bomb of a movie, Polite Society stays zippy and exuberant, aided by Manzoor putting the comic storylines at the movie’s heart. ~ Total Film.
