Tis the season for parents to pressure their children to find a partner while weddings sprout up like weeds all around them.
Written by Shiwani Srivastava and directed by Tom Dey, Wedding Season follows Asha (Pallavi Sharda) who is fresh off of breaking off an engagement and leaving her big-city banking career behind. She moves to New Jersey for a fresh start but her mother 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.
The cast also features Arianna Afsar, Sean Kleier, Veena Sood, Manoj Sood, Sonia Dhillon Tully, Damian Thompson, Ruth Goodwin, Ronica Sajnani, Julius Cho, and Rizwan Manji.
Wedding Season debuts August 4.
