Three sentence movie reviews: Monsoon Wedding

 In All (-ish), Three Sentence Movie Reviews


I’m not one of those Americans who is all gaga over India, so it wasn’t India that did it for me.  Instead, the story of an arranged marriage and the family preparations for the wedding sucked me in.  The colors in every frame were gorgeous, and there was so much glee throughout the film,* but what really won me over was the depth of love felt among the family members.**

Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home

*I’m thinking of the scene with the women singing and the big Bollywood-style dance sequence as well as the smaller wedding between two minor characters that took place during the big wedding.
**I rarely see such matter-of-fact, gentle love portrayed in movies.

    I remember when this came out but I can’t recall if I ever saw it. I feel like I didn’t and maybe I’m getting some other Indian movies confused with it. Not that I’ve seen many. I think I’ve seen more British-films-about-Indian-families than I’ve seen actual Indian films. This one sounds fun though!

    Woah! How’d I miss this?!?! Must have slipped off my reader before I got to it…

    I love how the poster itself has a brightness to it. I don’t think we often see a lot of orange field based images like that. I have been wanting to see this for awhile…
