Much Ado about Knotting by Geetika Narang and Anandana Kapur

Born into a society obsessed with marriage, a young girl, a not-so-young man and an NRI couple are compelled by tradition to look for matches via classifieds, matchmaking bureaus and websites. The Film is a light-hearted chronicle of the marriage predicament.
