Movie Info

A Suitable Girl follows three young women in India struggling to maintain their identities and follow their dreams amid intense pressure to get married. Ritu, Dipti and Amrita represent the new India. Educated, financially stable and raised with a mix of traditional and contemporary values in the urban cities of Mumbai and New Delhi, they have access to the world in ways their mothers did not. Yet their lives take a dramatic turn when the pressure to settle down and get married hits. Career aspirations become secondary to the pursuit of a husband, and the women struggle with the prospect of leaving their homes and families to become part of another.

  • A Suitable Girl proves a somber lament for a part of the world still clinging to its restrictive past, at great cost to (particularly) its female population.

  • Movingly chronicles its subjects' emotional travails and the societal and family pressures they face.

    April 25, 2017 | Full Review…
  • [It] doesn't upbraid or rail against the practice of arranged marriage that is its central subject, but rather employs it as the context...it questions not, instead offering a clear-eyed and empathetic look into the process.

    February 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • That the subjects shed their "chronicling formality" to trust the makers during their life's most transformative period is, in itself, a testament to the exhaustive ambitions of more than just another commentative exercise.

    March 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A Suitable Girl depicts the diverse forms arranged marriages take, breaking down stereotypes and creating an intricate portrait of an ever-evolving practice in one of the most populous countries in the world.

  • Docu offers an inside look at arranged marriage in India.
