Weddings are not a good time, I don’t care what anyone says. If you enjoy weddings, you are someone that I can’t relate to. What is so fun about going to watch people get legally bound to each other? It is just a lot of money and a lot of people asking you why you’re still single.
Yes, yes, my bitterness is showing. But if you know me, that’s just my personality. The thing is – I am not a big believer in love (again, jaded). But ask me to watch a movie all about love and weddings.
Sign me up.
The Netflix original, has all of the goodness. All the tropes that we can’t get enough of. But Wedding Season was something I hadn’t seen the fake boyfriend trope play out as before. It was original. It was fun.
It was about more than fake boyfriends with a falling in love ending. It was also about family. It was about following dreams and still maintaining the commitment to family. It was about struggles and living up to expectations. It was about being afraid and strong enough to find your way.
And it was about weddings.
Interviews are hard when you have four minutes to try and get all the answers you want, but the two are so passionate about their craft and art, that they gave me a lot in four and a half minutes.
See the interview with the two below and be sure to watch Wedding Season this weekend on Netflix.
“After breaking off her engagement, leaving a successful banking career behind in the city, and moving to New Jersey for a fresh start, Asha (Pallavi Sharda) couldn’t feel more alive. Her mother, on the other hand, thinks that her oldest daughter is about to miss a lifetime of happiness if she doesn’t take her focus away from her new startup job and place it on finding a husband instead. Taking matters into her own hands, Asha’s mother creates an online dating profile in order to set Asha up with a “perfect” match. Enter Ravi (Suraj Sharma) — or rather Ravi’s parents — who have the exact same idea for their son. Asha and Ravi’s reluctant first date is a bust, and they quickly discover that each is in a seemingly different place in their life right now. After realizing her mother is relentless and will not give up, Asha proposes a plan to Ravi that would be a win-win for both: a pretend relationship to be each other’s date to get through the upcoming wedding season. Through countless invitations, dances and dresses in the next three months, Asha and Ravi slowly come to find that they might have more in common than they think. Maybe their parents were onto something after all.”
