Movie Info

An American journalist travels to India to cover the colorful vibrancy of Indian weddings. Interwoven with the joy and fun of these traditional ceremonies, the film goes beyond the fluff -- to explore the human component of Hijras: a sect of transgender dancers who have been an integral part of Indian weddings for centuries. Conflict arises when our heroine (Fakhri) decides to delve more into the life of a Hijra but her government-designated liaison officer (Rao) is instructed to keep her story censored. As the coverage of Indian weddings unfolds, so does a colorful mosaic of lost loves, transgender tangles and culture clashes along the heartfelt journey of life, symbolized by the universal ups and downs of a wedding celebration.

Critic Reviews for 5 Weddings

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Inorganic and implausible, this Bollywood-inflected rom-com features little comedy and even less romance.

Oct 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The chemistry between Nargis and Rajkummar is unconvincing. While easily Rajkummar pulls off his role as a cop who is torn between his love and his work, Nargis doesn't bring much to the table.

The plot writing and the development of the two main characters in the film are weak.

Oct 31, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The film looks like a bright idea on paper but is a rather disjointed effort on execution.

Oct 31, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Namrata Singh Gujral's 5 Weddings finds a clever way to weave together rituals with observational comedy...the film is content in its modesty, but it doesn't quite work as an intimate and closely observed drama...
