I’m really choosy about Bollywood movies but Monsoon Wedding was recommended by a friend so I watched and liked it too. I won’t write that I loved the movie because Monsoon Wedding types of movies aren’t my type. I don’t like to watch family drama.
Monsoon Wedding can be a real fantasy or fiction for a western person but an Indian or Pakistani person won’t enjoy the movie much because the story and characters are part of its daily life. You know movies are supposed to make us feel what we don’t see or can’t do.
Monsoon Wedding has no weak points technically because screenplay, direction and acting are awesome. Especially Naseeruddin Shah has done an awesome job. He’s great Bollywood actor. Awesome character in the movie is Parbatlal Kanhaiyalal Dubey who falls in love with Alice. She’s maid. Another cool thing which we don’t see in common life that America return groom forgives his fiancee for her affair. Its first Bollywood movie I ever seen which has no its own song.
Monsoon Wedding has 7.2 imdb rating which is really good for a Bollywood movie.
