Following the local and international success of “D’arranged Marriage” and “From India With Love” kiwi actor/comedian Tarun Mohanbhai returns to NZ with his new show inspired by his own youthful experiences behind the counter of a corner store.
Cornershop Confessions is the story of Vijay, a budding DJ, who spends his life trying to break away from his father’s store and make it in the world on his own.
Vijay’s father struggles with Vijay’s ambitions and the prospect of having no one to carry on his retail legacy. With a grandmother who can’t speak English, a sister who is not married and a subservient mother this show is funny with a heart to boot!
“Tarun is a monsoon of movement language and characters. It is hard to believe on actor does it all." - Waikato times September 2004
“Ensuring hair splitting laughter . . . experience the hilarious roller coaster ride not the Indian way, rather the Tarun way." - Bharat Times Sydney Australia May 2003
“A commentary on Indian integration and social mores, leaving very little sacred. Lazy husbands, overworked wives, arranged marriages, burdensome grannies, dumb customers and shonky deals all get an airing in a show that is funny and affectionate, and sage and sad.” - Denise Irvine, Waikato Times, Feb 20 2008
