Mira Nair’s exuberant ensemble comedy follows a very proper, upper-middle-class Punjabi family in Delhi as they gather their relatives for a celebration. Aditi (Vasundhara Das), the family’s daughter, is about to be married off to a man she’ll meet just two days before the wedding. Yet the world that Nair shows us in Monsoon Wedding couldn’t be more madly disconnected from itself. The current of technology — and Americanization — has jumbled everything up, including love. Can this family realign the balance between the established order and the freedom of the 21st century? The old-world-meets-new tangle is incarnated in the soundtrack, an effusion of disco Bollywood that sends your spirit soaring.
