Synopsis/ Description
Born into a society obsessed with marriage, a young girl, a not-so-young man and an NRI couple are compelled by tradition to look for matches via classifieds, matchmaking bureaus and websites. Confronted with innumerable criteria that determine who is acceptable and who isn’t, they question themselves and their choices. As they introspect, the melee of the matchmaking industry continues. The Film is a light-hearted chronicle of this predicament that almost every Indian faces.
