Monsoon Wedding tackles the chaos that results when a large Indian family, whose members are scattered around the globe, assembles in contemporary New Delhi for an old-fashioned marriage ceremony. Director Mira Nair, best known for Mississippi Masala, a cross-cultural love story with Denzel Washington, as well as the Oscar-nominated Salaam Bombay!, aims for pure joy and achieves it.
