All Critics (123) | Top Critics (40) | Fresh (117) | Rotten (6)

  • This drama by Mira Nair has been hailed as a feel-good spree, but it's better than that-a barely stable compound of the wounding, the confusing, and the appealing.

    July 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A late radical shift in tone, from jittery exuberance to ruinous alienation, strikes an impressive contemporary note amid all the obeisance to custom.

    June 22, 2010 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • Splashy, noisy and downright fun.

  • 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.

  • A feel-good picture in the best sense of the term.

    Beautiful depiction of a family in the lead up to the wedding. My favourite scene is the marriage of servants quietly taking place in a simple manner in the backdrop. More moving than the ceremony which is the focus of the main picture.

    This is a different kind of film. It shows a contemporary side of India that is irresistible. You will feel as if you know the characters portrayed, even if they live half a world away.

    Fabulous in the sense that it paints a wonderful palette of dynamics in an Indian family. It's not too culture-centric so the mainstream can appreciate it too, the conflict is serious but not too heavy, and you can feel the love just seeping throughout each crack. "Rachel Getting Married" without the psychosis. I kinda wish there were songs though. Just because it's Indian.

    A hugely enjoyable movie which centers around the preperations for an arranged marriage in India. The story consists of vibrant characters and different romances plus family drama... and a bit of music and dancing for good measure. A great little look into a part of Indian culture with a good ending too. Well worth the watch.
