Bleecker Street has nabbed the U.S. rights to writer-director Geeta Malik’s comedy India Sweets and Spices, which stars Sophia Ali, Manisha Koirala, Adil Hussain, Rish Shah and Deepti Gupta.

Bleecker Street plans a Nov. 19 theatrical release for the Indian American coming-of-age tale that debuted at Tribeca. India Sweets and Spices follows Alia Kapur, played by Ali, as she returns to her family’s posh suburban New Jersey home after a year at college and upends their lives with her brash independence.

Her rebellion climaxes at a dinner party where family secrets are revealed that push Alia toward a daring and ultimately hilarious confrontation.

India Sweets and Spices is a film so close to my heart, and I’m thrilled to be working with such a passionate team at Bleecker Street,” Malik said in a statement.
