The film follows an array of stories of love, passion and deception that gradually unfold amid the chaotic but comedic preparations.

As the romantic monsoon rain looms, the extended Verma family reunite from around the globe for a last minute arranged marriage in New Delhi. MONSOON WEDDING traces five intersecting stories, each navigating different aspects of love as they cross boundaries of class, continent and morality.

The family's hopes, anxieties and long-guarded secrets emerge amid frantic wedding preparations and are juxtaposed with arresting montages of real-life Delhi.
