The majority of the film takes place inside the home of an extended Punjabi family living in New Delhi who has gathered together for the arranged wedding of Adita. She is to marry Hemant, a man who works in the United States. This means leaving her family home to go live with him, and though Adita says she welcomes the new opportunity, it is clear that she already feels homesick. Also, she is still in love with her former boss, Vikram, a television producer who promises to divorce his wife but never does. Though Adita is careful to hide her true feelings from her family, her sister Ria is not. Ria has issues of her own. She wants to go to school in the United States and become a writer, but her family would prefer her to follow a more traditional path. By the time the film is over, Monsoon Wedding, will have charmed the audience and taken them on a journey of discovery, immersing them in a foreign culture only to find that human nature is pretty much the same all over.
