The Wedding Tamasha


A sweet romantic tale about love, family, values and traditions.

Twenty-eight-year-old Shweta Menon finds refuge from an abusive husband by working at a Mexican café in the US. She doesn’t know how to tell her parents the truth about her marriage and return to India. But then her brother’s wedding leaves her no choice.

Entrepreneur Chef Niraj (Niru) Karthik is in charge of catering for his best friend’s wedding. He isn’t looking forward to meeting his childhood crush—the one that got away—but he finds himself drawn to her again.

Shweta has only thought of Niru as her older brother’s best friend, but now she’s falling head over heels in love with him. As both try to come to terms with their true feelings, they realize that a lot more than friendship is at stake.

And then, there’s Shweta’s family, mixed up in a dilemma: an overbearing father, an over-anxious mother, and three very disparate yet close siblings.

Will Shweta get the love and acceptance she yearns for? Or will upholding the family honour be more important?
