Watch: 'Beeba Boys' Send A Deadly (Text) Message in Exclusive Clip

The latest film from Oscar-nominated director Deepa Mehta is “Beeba Boys,” an adrenaline-filled gangster epic cut with a Bollywood flair.

The film tracks the eponymous gang — a syndicate of stylish Indo-Canadians — staking their claim in the Vancouver criminal underworld. In the exclusive clip above, the Beeba Boys interrupt a presumed rival’s celebrations with an ominous text message. Suffice it to say, your celebration would probably be ruined if you learned “U R about to be gunned down.”

After earning critical acclaim for “Water,” the female director Mehta is changing pace with “Beeba Boys,” looking to subvert the macho genre by bringing it to uncharted territory. From the intense trailer, one gets the sense that Mehta looks to similar gangster auteurs such as Scorsese and Tarantino but tries to break new ground by injecting the crime story with a healthy dose of Indian culture.
Beeba Boys made its international debut at the Toronto International Film Festival last month and will be released in Canadian theaters on October 16 by Mongrel Media.
