On the eve of the longed-for, cooling monsoon season, the far-flung members of an upper-middle class Indian family gather in Delhi for a typical Punjabi wedding. But as the big day dawns, the wedding contractor's promises become more evasive, while the bride's hard-pressed father worries how he is going to pay for everything. Nair's sprawling, carnivalesque drama combines the colour and vibrancy of Bollywood with an earthy realism. And while she can be sharply satiric, Nair treats her characters, high and low, without condescension.
