Monsoon Wedding: The Criterion Collection

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 buried 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 that won the hearts of audiences worldwide and the Golden Lion at the 2001 Venice Film Festival. This set also includes seven of Nair's acclaimed shorts - documentaries and fiction films that show the social and political engagement of this most passionate of filmmakers.
