A Suitable Girl: Co-director Q&A

Friday 23rd February, 2018

Dipti, Amrita, and Ritu represent the new India. Educated, financially stable and raised with a mix of traditional and contemporary values in Mumbai and New Delhi, they have access to the world in ways their mothers did not. Yet their lives take a dramatic turn when the pressure to settle down and get married hits. Career aspirations become secondary to the pursuit of a husband, and the women struggle with the prospect of leaving their homes and families to become part of another.

Filmed over four years, A Suitable Girl follows these three young women as they juggle family, career and friends, intimately capturing their thoughts on arranged marriage, and offering a unique perspective into the nuances of this institution.

Q&A with co-director Sarita Khurana, hosted by Naman Ramachandran, programmer of the Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival.
