An Indian arrangement
When Indian-American copywriter Ashok Khosla came to India to find himself a bride, little did he know that he would not just encounter future brides but also his own conflicted emotions and ethnicity.
The film, A Decent Arrangement, is about Khosla (Adam Laupus) and his journey across India for an arranged marriage. It has been written, directed and produced by Sarovar Banka. The film also stars Shabana Azmi, who helps Khosla in hisquest.
Through the journey he encounters many people, including an American woman and an Indian girl he is set up with, who captivates him.
