Monsoon Wedding Reviews

Emanuel Levy

Mira Nair's most colorful and most fully realized film

| Original Score: A-

October 5, 2012
Nick Rogers

Not content to merely direct traffic of intersecting characters, Mira Nair never lets the scurrying ensemble lag or their stories flag. "Monsoon Wedding" is one of the most culturally savory, joyously exotic comedies since "Strictly Ballroom."

Much of the movie's incidental fun comes from acute little observations and clever set-pieces.

A late radical shift in tone, from jittery exuberance to ruinous alienation, strikes an impressive contemporary note amid all the obeisance to custom.

A big, galloping party movie in which the party in question is a clear metaphor for the world.

Nair's stereotype-shattering movie -- like the polymorphous culture it illuminates -- borrows from Bollywood, Hollywood and cinema verite, and comes up with something exuberantly its own.

The impression of cosmopolitan modern India, of diaspora lives thrown into collision and collusion, is engaging in itself, but the emotional optimism here is the most heartening aspect of this vivacious film.

Strongly infused with an unmistakably exotic Bollywood flair while addressing themes and concerns that are universal-namely, the bonds of family and, most importantly, love.

The romantic comedy even goes into somber territory, but it never loses its grasp of tone or its undenying beauty.

Superbly acted, gorgeously photographed, enjoyable and engaging drama by Mira Nair, with a terrific soundtrack to boot -- the perfect Hollywood/Bollywood crossover film.
