Indian Wedding Movies

If you’re anything like us, when you’re anticipating a big event, it’s all you can think about, and it’s all you want to think about. So when you’re planning a beach vacation, you watch those Friends episodes where they’re in Montauk and the Sex and the City episodes in the Hamptons. When you’re gearing up for a bachelorette party, you watch Bridesmaids on repeat. So when you’re planning your Indian wedding, you probably need some movies to watch. Never fear, we’ve got you covered: Behold the DEFINITIVE list of Indian wedding movies for the modern Indian bride.

Do you have a friend who’s recently engaged and embarking on the emotional roller coaster that they call “wedding planning?” Schedule a girls’ night to watch one (or more) of these classics, or buy a few DVDs to include in her “CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT AHHHHH!!!!” care package.

And don’t forget the popcorn.

Unending Love by Rabindranath Tagore

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times…
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, its age-old pain,
Its ancient tale of being apart or together.
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge,
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:
You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount.
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played along side millions of lovers, shared in the same
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell-
Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you
The love of all man’s days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life.
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours –
And the songs of every poet past and forever.
