Sit back and enjoy this new romantic comedy about an unlikely couple who find love unexpectedly
It’s wedding season, so it’s not surprising that Netflix has treated viewers to a rom-com focusing on an unlikely couple who fall in love during said season.
The film not only documents the couple’s love story, but also the far-reaching impact that marriage has on the family.
It’s heartwarming, touching and funny – a perfect watch for a warm summer evening.
But what exactly is Wedding Season about, who is in the cast and how to watch?
Here’s everything you need to know.
What is the wedding season about?
Wedding Season is a Netflix romantic comedy about an Indian-American man and woman who pretend to be dating because they’re tired of their parents asking when they’re going to get married.
Asha is a successful woman whose career-oriented lifestyle doesn’t sit well with her parents’ vision of finding her a suitable husband.
Tired of being teased and her mother creating dating profiles for her without her knowledge, Asha pretends to be dating Ravi – whose parents also created a dating profile on his behalf.
Ravi is something of Asha’s opposite as he is extremely laid back and unemployed.
Unsurprisingly, their major differences mean their first date doesn’t go well, but Asha and Ravi agree to pretend they’re dating while they attend a summer of weddings so they can get their parents off to stop them from bothering them with their dating life and marriage plans.
One of the people getting married is Asha’s sister Priya who is the first person in her family to marry outside of her nationality, although her fiancé Nick is still trying to be the model Indian husband.
Of course, Asha and Ravi then really fall in love after spending so much time together.
Who is in the cast?
