about the film and film maker
This film is an investigation into documentary representation and institution of marriage.
In filming three women participants and their male partners across temporal and spatial zones, the film offers diversity of experiences in love-cum-arranged marriage. This cinematic representation acts as a critique of the problematic representation of Indian women, gender relations, and Indian marriages particularly love-cum-arranged marriage in mainstream Hindi and British cinema and instead provides an alternative amidst under-representation in Hindi 'alternative' cinema and Indian and Western documentary cinema.

It was submitted as part of the final submission for practice-based PhD in documentary theory and practice at University of Bristol. It was shot using mini-DV format during the period 2001-2004 and edited in 2005 in India and England.
