Based on a memoir by journalist Sarfraz Manzoor and infused with the music of The Boss, Blinded by the Light is an earnest and entertaining coming-of-age story about one kid’s attempt to fit in.
Javed (Viveik Kalra) is a teenage British Pakistani whose working class family struggles to integrate in Luton, England, during the late 1980s. Torn between two cultures, he finds solace in the music of Bruce Springsteen, whose lyrics relate to his own personal woes. With an energetic ‘80s flavour and Springsteen’s music woven throughout, Blinded by the Light delivers a nostalgic reflection of a not-too-distant past, and positive messages about generational diversity and the importance of family.
