    The agile handling of the soap-opera elements -- conventional plotting at best -- finally makes "Wedding" a pop, facile take on Capulet versus Montague stuff, likable but square.

    Gives just enough to forgive any of its initial flaws and eventually grows on you.

    A scruffy, thick-grained piece of work, shot in thirty days and scrawled not with luscious coloring but with the tense and inky markings of a society that is fighting to keep its reputation for togetherness, and wondering what that reputation is still worth. [18 & 25 Feb 2002. p. 199]
  4. An air-conditioned bus tour of Punjabi ritual. Nair stuffs the film with dancing, henna, ornamentation, and group song, but her narrative clichés and telegraphed episodes smell of old soap opera.

The film is a very nice family movie about a typical punjabi family. The laughs are good and the acting is even good. The story delivers good time pass interesting hooking up film hint of lore. Lovely imagery and very good collection of songs. Vijay Razz as DubeyJi is very funny and the captions help you understand what the comedy is about. There are so many reasons to watch Monsoon Wedding- from the Rain to everyone falling in love. When it rains it pours for this family! I agree with Roger Ebert- this is the type of movie people tell their friends to see. Full Review »
