Far-flung relatives descend on the family to further complicate matters. And family secrets threaten to burst into the open on the big day. Filmmaker Mira Nair (Salaam Bombay!, Mississippi Masala) infuses this sprawling, uproarious story with humor, sensitivity and a clear-eyed take on the clash between tradition and modernity – brightened by a joyous soundtrack. Named the best movie romance of the 21st century by IndieWire. “Nair’s stereotype-shattering movie — like the polymorphous culture it illuminates — borrows from Bollywood, Hollywood and cinema verité, and comes up with something exuberantly its own.” – David Ansen, Newsweek"
