Everything about an Indian wedding is signi¿cant-the mantras, the sacred ¿re in the middle of the altar, the seven rounds around the ¿re, and the colors of the bride's sari. This day of an arranged marriage for the Sharma family is drenched in heavy rain, but far deeper problems lay within this particular Indian family, who has lived in Canada for the last thirty years.
For Gangga Sharma, marrying Subash has been her dream-until her wedding day, when her dream turns into a nightmare. For Jamuna Sharma, the wedding is sacred; she vows if she gets married, it'll be an Indian wedding. She's not certain, though, that it will be with an Indian man. For Kaveri Sharma, the sacredness of her marriage meant nothing.
For Menaka, her marriage destroyed the life she'd always dreamed of living. When she discovers Ajay's a¿air, she believes she's failed at being a good wife. For Ajay, his daughter's wedding opens a can of worms that could potentially destroy his life and his relationship with his daughters.
The Sharma family must analyze what marriage means to each and reconcile their expectations with the old culture of India and the di¿ering culture in Canada.
