This is a very low budget, strange and off the wall but a surprisingly watchable film.
Bulla portrayed Ricky Grover who as well as starring in it, directed it, co wrote it and produced it. I think he might even did the catering and swept up at the end of the shoot each day.
Bulla plays a gypsy gangster just released from prison after a bent cop put him behind bars. After his release he is followed by a television documentary crew and his Aunty is about to lose her pub whilst being possessed by ghosts. His local boxing club has also heard the final bell.
Bulla is trying to to climb back to the top of the heap but the world has changed a lot since he has been inside.
Grover probably called in a few favours from friends when he did his stint in Eastenders and other shows. He was also aided by the hit TV show, Big Fat Gypsy wedding hence the punning title.
It's a mixed bag, rather Marmite, some people will hate this film, and its low budget limitations are plain to see but its reach has to be admired.
Grover puts everything in his performance as the hyper Bulla and there are some nifty performances from Rufus Hound, Omid Djalili and especially Steven Berkoff as the Eastern mystic.
It is funny, violent, weird but worth a watch.
