Saturday night, the kids were sleeping over with the grandparents, so we had plans to catch dinner and a movie out somewhere. I was up for either The King’s Speech or Cedar Rapids, but my wife wasn’t feeling well, so things didn’t work out too tell. Instead, we ended up having a late dinner at a relatively new Afghan fast food joint in Robbinsville named Afghan Kebob & Grill. It’s a decent place, and food isn’t expensive. It was mostly empty on a late Sunday night, but I figure they’re more crowded at lunchtime.

When we got home, we checked out our streaming options, and we elected for No One Killed Jessica, a 2011 Bollywood film. This film is loosely-based on the real-life murder of Jessica Lall in 1999 in New Delhi. The son of a political family kills a young woman, and a multitude of partygoers/witnesses claim to not have seen anything. the powerful and rich encircle to protect their own and pay off / threaten witnesses. Meanwhile, the sister of the victim and another television reporter independently work to get justice for Jessica. It stars mostly people I didn’t recognize, except Rani Mukherjee. I thought there were strong performances from all of the actors/actresses, and thankfully, no dance routines.
