Wedding Season Plot Synopsis
Before the start of the film, Asha upended her entire life. She ended her engagement, quit her lucrative Wall Street job, and moved to New Jersey to find herself. She now works for a loan initiative that seeks to improve the living condition of women in Southeast Asia. She has no time for dating, but her parents don’t listen. Suneeta (Veena Sood) and Vijay (Rizwan Manji) think their daughter made a terrible decision when she left her Wall Street job. Vijay, who is an economist like his daughter, thinks Asha is too much of an idealist. Asha’s sister, Priya (Ari Afsar), is a doctor and engaged to Nick (Sean Kleier), a white neurosurgeon.
Much of Asha’s attention is concentrated on convincing a delegation from Singapore to invest in their initiative. But during a workplace meeting, Suneeta sends the latest prospect for her daughter to date, who she found on an Indian American dating app called Dreamy Desi Partner. Asha is irritated by her mother’s actions but can’t do anything to stop them. When Suneeta picks Ravi as Asha’s new date, Asha points out to her that the way the profile has been worded, there is no way it was written by Ravi himself. As it turns out, it was actually Ravi’s father who prepared the profile.
Ravi’s parents, Dinesh (Manoj Sood) and Veena (Sonia Dhillon Tully), are almost as eager to get him into a relationship as Asha’s parents are with her. Convinced by their respective parents, Asha and Ravi meet and quickly realize that they are in completely different stages of their lives. While Asha’s life revolves around her work, for now, Ravi has put some distance between his life and his work. Realizing that the prospect of a relationship between her and Ravi will keep their parents happy, Asha suggests to Ravi that they should pretend to date and attend the weddings together. Ravi accepts and thus begins an unconventional romance.
