Londonstani

by Gautam Malkani

Testosterone laden angst amongst Brit-Asian youth in West London. Definitely one for hip young things - and for everyone else into flash cars, gangsta rap and bling, persist with the rudeboy slang and dive in.

Rudeboy Rule 6:
Although desi ladies should dress like Bollywood actresses, under no circumstances should desi men try to dress like their male co-stars. Bollywood actors are the only desi men on Planet Earth who're allowed to wear skintight jeans. Watchin em carry it off as they carry the heroine outta the fountain during the soaked, see-through sari scene is just one more reason to sit through more Bollywood movies than you currently do. Must really fuckin hurt them though.

Parallels

The Catcher in the Rye by J D Salinger
Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh
