The representation of South Asian culture in foreign countries is becoming a part of the entertainment show-business. Netflix’s original show Never Have I Ever is one example of such representation. Even in fan-favorite Bridgerton as well, one can see the representations of South Asian cultural values through the character of Katherine and her family. Well, another recently released movie on Netflix, Wedding Season, is a fresh portrayal of South Asianness. The concept of arranged marriage is very common in South Asia and the movie revolves around the same. But does the film get representation right? Is it worth your time? Let’s find out.
Is Wedding Season on Netflix worth watching?
Wedding Season is an American comedy movie, directed by Tom Dey and written by Shiwani Srivastava. The stars of the movie are Suraj Sharma, Pallavi Sharda, Rizwan Manji, Veena Sood, Ari Afsar, Sean Kleier, and Manoj Sood. Suraj Sharma as Ravi and Pallavi Sharda as Asha are the lead actors.
The pressure of getting married at the correct age is something that one would never understand until one would live with any traditional-minded parents. Ravi and Asha are currently facing this pressure.
Therefore, pressured by their parents to find spouses, Asha and Ravi pretend to date during a summer of weddings. Of course, they fall in love with each other without them even realizing it. Now, what would they do? Are they going to stay together? Are they going to even confess their love? To get the answers, stream the movie now.
