BEEBA BOYS: An Exclusive Interview with Director Deepa Mehta


Deepa1Deepa Mehta mixes guns, bhangra beats, bespoke suits, cocaine, and betrayal in Beeba Boys: a ferocious, adrenaline-charged Indo Canadian gang war, and a violent clash of culture and crime.

Beeba Boys is a gangster film by an internationally celebrated director; a movie where stereotypes are intentionally challenged and which takes us right inside this Indo Canadian world…a specific world and culture which no crime movie has explored before.

Beeba Boys should not only appeal to fans of Deepa’s but also to those who appreciate a film that is about something. And the hope is that this movie will find a new audience. An audience intrigued by gangsters, guns, action, and hard-hitting entertainment. An audience that could crossover between many communities as elements of comedy, hip hop, style, and culture blend perfectly in this film. It’s a movie full of relationships, particularly family relationships. All of Deepa’s films delve into the complexities and incongruities of family and particularly the relationship between parents and children.

FUSIA Editor-in-Chief, Meera Estrada interviewed Director Deepa Mehta during TIFF 2015 on the making of this intriguing, adrenaline-pumping and highly anticipated film. Watch the video interview here for an inside look at these ‘good guys’ gone bad. The Beeba Boys.
