Bappu in The Hundred-Foot Journey

By Richard C. Morais


Bappu is the main servant in the family business in Mumbai and acts as Hassan's first mentor. As a kid, Hassan watches him slice, chop, and prepare all sorts of things in the kitchen. Bappu takes Hassan with him on his trips to the market and shows him what's what. We don't see a whole lot of Bappu's personality, but we guess that he's a pretty good sport to put up with Papa and Ammi's craziness. The last time Hassan ever sees him is the day the family flies away to London.
