Ash is a man torn between two worlds: that of his family and friends and, the other, that of his dreams. This is his story, set across London with its fast paced nightlife and run ins with the law, all caught on camera from the Director of Kidulthood.Written by
Everywhere & Nowhere is a coming of age Drama Directed by Menhaj Huda (same guy that brought us Kidulthood, 2006). This film is centred around a British Asian torn between honouring his family traditions and his love for DJing. Its Starring James Floyd, Adam Deacon, Alyy Khan, Shivani Ghani, Shaheen Khan, Saeed Jaffrey, Katia Winter & Simon Webbe.
Here's a film that looked like another version of Adulthood/Kidulthood from the trailers but turned out to be a disappointing drama about family, decisions, terrorism and last chances. I thought this was going to be the Asian version to one of Adam Deacons Hood series. Thank god they didn't call this one 'Asianhood'. It had some elements from the film Bend It Like Beckham but this time the main person is a boy and swap the Football for Djing.
We couldn't understand why they thought to put this in the cinema, why not BBC 1 on a random Friday night?. The storyline takes way too long to take form and when it hit the real issue the message was not put across properly. There are scenes that are not really necessary, they spent too much time dwelling on things that don't matter. We the audience do not get enough on other characters to understand them. There's nothing this story tells the audience that the world does not know already. There's also nothing that showed us that it cost a lot to make (a couple flats, houses, nightclubs, couple cars) and that's it really. Also the way it ends it inexcusable. its just seems to come to crashing halt after a major shake of the story's equilibrium.
The best thing about the whole film is the music, the creative and fresh side of our main guy Ash comes in. We hear good remixes to Bollywood classics that we have not heard before. From the end product of this film you wouldn't be able to tell that the same Director Menhaj Huda directed Kidulthood (doesn't show at all). He tries to bring us into the world of other cultures but the story has no charisma. The cinematography & screenplay is average.
Main character Ash (Floyd) did his best but wasn't able to showcase his talent enough. We wondered why Adam Deacon makes a random appearance in this film, he does a great job (as usual) as Zaf but we could obviously tell he was put in this film for it to create a buzz (without him nobody would think twice about watching this). Seems everybody is an actor nowadays even Simon the singer from Blue is doing it, he plays a DJ called Ronnie in love with an Asian girl. Ghani, Buckley, Revah, Winter, Malik, Fletcher, Jaffrey all do good enough job. OK Cast.
