Directed by Mira Nair (Salaam Bombay!, Mississippi Masala) and winner of the Golden Lion - Venice Film Festival 2001, Monsoon Wedding raises the feel good factor with a celebration of Punjabi tradition.
As the monsoon rains loom, the upwardly mobile Verma family reunites from around the globe for a last-minute arranged marriage in modern New Delhi where the bride-to-be will meet her husband, a young Indian professional from Texas, for the very first time. But as the preparations get underway conflict and scandal simmer beneath the surface threatening to throw the festivities into chaos.
The relentless summer heat mirrors the story's building intensity, as the city anticipates the cooling torrent of the monsoons. When the rain eventually comes, it brings with it romance, revelation and liberation.
Monsoon Wedding traces five intersecting stories, each navigating different aspects of love as they cross boundaries of class, continent and morality. A colourful, funny and evocative family comedy celebrating contemporary India, starring an ensemble cast.
