Action comedy written and directed by Nida Manzoor. Polite Society (2023) follows martial artist-in-training to become stunt woman Ria Khan (Priya Kansara), who believes she must save her older sister, Lena (Ritu Arya), from her impending marriage. After enlisting the help of her friends, Ria attempts to pull off the most ambitious of all wedding heists in the name of independence and sisterhood.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Ria: I am going to be a stunt woman.
Ria: Want to help me with a vid for my channel? Please!
Ria: I’m Ria Khan. My sister, Lena, is the only person who believes in me. She helps me with all my training. But lately, she’s been seeing this guy who I think is a bit of a smarmy wanker.
Lena: [to Ria] You are going to be such a great stunt woman.
Ria: Lena, it’s a trap.
Lena: Oh, my God. Ria. Chill out.
Ria: Now I’m not being dramatic, but these people are evil.
Ria: I found something.
Groom’s Mother: [to Ria] I’ve got my eye on you.
Ria: They are not taking her away without a fight.
Groom’s Mother: I will strike down you, or anyone else, who tries to get in my way.
Groom’s Mother: [after she waxes Ria’s leg] How about the bikini area?
Ria: Let’s dance.
Ria: We need to get Lena out.
Ria: Mischief is afoot.
Groom’s Mother: Lena’s not going anywhere, you little b**ch!
Lena’s Fiancé: Mom, what you doing?
Ria: We stick to the plan. Nothing changes.
Ria: We are going to show Lena who these people really are.
Friend: Let’s decimate this mother!
Ria: Did you see my kick?
Lena: Of course, I bloody did. It was magical.
Ria: I’m pretty sure I drew blood.
Lena: I’m pretty sure you did.
