Chicago Sun-Times - 03/08/2002
"...One of those joyous films that leaps over national boundaries and celebrates universal human nature....What strikes you immediately about MONSOON WEDDING is the quickness of the comedy, the deft way Nair moves between story lines..."

Product Description:

Cultures and families clash in Mira Nair's exuberant MONSOON WEDDING, a mix of comedy and chaotic melodrama concerning the preparations for the arranged marriage of a modern upper-middle-class Indian family's only daughter, Aditi. Of course there are hitches--Aditi has been having an affair with a married TV host; she's never met her husband to be, who lives in Houston; the wedding has worsened her father's hidden financial troubles; even the wedding planner has become a nervous wreck--as well as burried family secrets. But Nair's celebration is ultimately joyful and cathartic: a love song to her home city of Delhi and her own Punjabi family.
