British Asian films are known for their raw, witty and unglamorous take on life. They combine the dryness of British humour with the spiciness of Asian culture. They have the ability to comment on all aspects of society that are prevalent today and introduce a multitude of talents from directors and writers, to musicians and actors. Some of the more popular film of this genre are Bhaji on the Beach (1993), East is East (1999), Anita and Me (2002), Bend it Like Beckham (2002) and of course the Oscar-winner Slumdog Millionaire (2008).
