SYNOPSIS: Anita Panchouri is the doting daughter of a deep in debt Indian businessman. She’s on the verge of willingly marrying a wealthy suitor when she meets a romantic rasta singer, Lee de Leon who’s drafted last minute to perform at her engagement party. There are sparks, naturally, but Anita refuses to acknowledge them, focusing instead on playing matchmaker to a constantly bickering, secretly-in-love couple: her sarcastic cousin Poorvi and her underachieving future brother-in-law, Partiv. Of course, no one can see these sworn enemies are made for each other…no one except Lee who vows to unite the two. Set in beautiful Trinidad and Tobago, BAZODEE is a Bollywood style Caribbean musical about being true to yourself and honest in love at all costs.
