One Sheet for It's a Wonderful Afterlife

What do you call a movie that mixes a romantic comedy with a serial killer?  A HorRomCom?  Let's just call it pretty original for now!  According to AITH, a new poster has surfaced for a pretty interesting movie called 'It's a Wonderful Afterlife'.  Oh Wait, we don't only have the poster for you, we also have the plot synopsis, and it definitely shows that this film has some serious potential.
MRS. SETHI, a widow, can't bear the thought of her daughter being alone and unhappy. Okay, she's a little plump and opinionated, but she'd make a great wife for some lucky man, if only she were given a chance. When MRS. SETHI can no longer stomach the rudeness of families who refuse her daughter, she takes matters into her own hands with the only way she knows...Suddenly a police hunt begins for a serial murderer who cooks a killer curry. MRS. SETHI doesn't feel too guilty until the SPIRITS of her victims come back to haunt her - complete with tandooried bodies and kebab skewered heads, they're unable to be reincarnated until their murderer dies. MRS. SETHI has no problem killing herself she'll get to see her dead husband again but how can she go before her daughter is married? The SPIRITS realize that helping Mrs Sethi daughter find a suitable husband before the police catch her is their only chance for a wonderful afterlife.
Now that seems like a fun flick!  From the original brilliant mind of Gurinder Chadha, who brought us 'Bend it Like Beckham', the cast includes Shabana Azmi, Goldy Natay, Shaheen Khan (Beckham) and Sendhill Ramamurthy (Heroes).  Filming is set to go next month.
