5 Weddings

5 Weddings Release Date: October 26, 2018

In the Indian film 5 Weddings, an American journalist travels to India to cover the colorful vibrancy of Indian weddings. Interweaved with the joy and fun of these traditional ceremonies; the film goes beyond the fluff – to explore the human component of Hijras: a sect of transgender dancers who have been an integral part of Indian weddings for centuries. Conflict arises when our heroine (Nargis Fakhri) decides to delve more into the life of a Hijra but her government designated liaison officer (Rajkummar Rao) is instructed to keep her story censored. As the coverage of Indian weddings unfolds, so does a colorful mosaic of lost loves, transgender tangles and culture clashes along the heartfelt journey of life, symbolized by the universal ups and downs of a wedding celebration.
