As the romantic monsoon rains loom, the extended Verma family reunites from around the globe for a last-minute arranged marriage in New Delhi. Mira Nair’s exuberant Monsoon Wedding traces five intersecting stories, each navigating different aspects of love as they cross boundaries of class, continent, and morality.
“Nair’s stereotype-shattering movie — like the polymorphous culture it illuminates — borrows from Bollywood, Hollywood, and cinema verite, and comes up with something exuberantly its own.” – David Ansen, Newsweek
