MONSOON WEDDING tells the story of an India family planning the traditional, arranged marriage of their daughter, Aditi (Vasundhara Das). However, while having agreed to the ceremony, Aditi still cares for her ex-boyfriend, a married man that never would leave his wife for her. Aditi’s parents, Lalit (Naseerudin Shah) and Pimmi (Lilette Dubey), have the responsibility of not only of planning the elaborate ceremony to be held at their home, but also welcoming the large families on both sides, which adds more stress to an already shaky marriage. As the days leading up to the wedding unfold, audiences observe budding romances, past secrets uncovered, and family bonds strengthened.
MONSOON WEDDING is a truly special movie about the connection, support, and encouragement people can find in their families. The major offenders in this foreign film include sexual content and obscene language. Although some sexual comments are made, the most graphic occurs on a live television show (reminiscent of a famous scene from When Harry Met Sally) when a woman fakes sexual climax in a demonstration for panel discussion. Vulgar language includes a dozen obscenities and nine moderate crudities, which prevents saying, “I do” to MONSOON WEDDING.
