Sandip Roy: Monsoon on Stage

Monsoon Wedding by Mira Nair was an unlikely hit in 2001. A movie set in India but not a British Raj nostalgia film. Nor a Passage to spiritual India. Nor Bollywood. It was a rollicking film about a changing modern India. Told through the shenanigans at a family wedding in delhi.
16 years later it has been reborn as a musical at the Berkeley Repertory Theater.
