Caribbean American Heritage Month: DC Caribbean Film Fest

BAZODEE – Saturday, June 11, 2016 at 8:00 pm

Anita Panchouri is the doting daughter of an Indian businessman who is deep in debt. She’s on the verge of dutifully marrying a wealthy suitor when she meets a romantic rasta singer, Lee de Leon (Soca superstar Machel Montano), who’s drafted at the last minute to perform at her engagement party. There are sparks, and Anita decides she wants to be with him, just once, before she enters a loveless marriage for the sake of her father’s future. But her designs on Lee don’t go unnoticed, and the territorial younger brother of Anita’s fiancé hatches a plan of revenge that could destroy her family and any chance at true love. Set in beautiful Trinidad and Tobago, BAZODEE is a Bollywood-style Caribbean musical about being true to oneself and honest in love at all costs.
