The Angrez (English : “The English or The Foreigner) is a 2005 Hyderabadi Indian comedy movie directed by Kuntaa Nikkil. In this movie, the word “Angrez” refers to English people and non-resident Indians. The movie was a trend-setter at that time, as it was one of the first to effectively and humorously, often resorting to the slapstick kind, portray the dialect of the Old City, Hyderabad and the Hyderabadi tongue. The film also portrays the fascination for American materialism, the hype around the IT industry and the lifestyle and culture it has spawned.
