Set entirely in LA County’s “Little India” against a backdrop of South Asian snack shops, fancy-goods stores, sari palaces, Indian pizza restaurants, and populated by revolutionaries, Kannada Kutta drama groups, Indian entrepreneurs, H1B techies and wannabe hip-hop artists. Four Samosas tells the story of Vinny, an un-motivated Indian-American rapper, who learns that his ex-girlfriend, who he never really got over, is about to get married. So Vinny decides to launch an ill-advised heist on her father’s grocery store, to steal her dowry and disrupt her engagement.
