Monsoon Wedding

Mira Nair / DE, FR, IT, IN, 2001 / 114 min.

Having to marry someone chosen by your parents rather than someone of your own choice? It’s no reason not to throw a party, as would seem to be the message of this exuberant ode to Bollywood by successful director Mira Nair (Salaam Bombay!). Time-honoured tradition meets the dot.com society in the run-up to an arranged marriage in New Delhi.
