WEDDING SARI SHOWDOWN - Part 2
Sikh-Australian Ramona and her Marwari husband are expecting their first child and Ramona’s mother-in-law is coming to stay. But while Ramona is prepared to accept ‘Mummy’s’ advice on all things baby, there is a limit to how far she will acquiesce and relinquish power. This is her first baby after all – and she has very definite views of her own. That is, until she takes her new baby to visit her in-laws in India …
Three years ago Sikh-Australian Ramona and her Marwari husband, Anurag, defied their families by eloping and marrying secretly in a Melbourne registry office. In WEDDING SARI SHOWDOWN - Part 1, they were compelled by their families to ‘marry’ twice more, firstly in a modest Sikh ceremony and then in an elaborate Hindu ceremony in Rajasthan. Now they are expecting their first child and Ramona’s mother-in-law is coming to stay.
Wedding Sari Showdown - Part 2 follows the unique transition of Ramona and Anurag from an independent couple to a young Indian family – all under the ever-watchful eyes of Ramona’s mother-in-law, Rajini.
The difference between Ramona and her traditional Mawari mother-in-law couldn’t be greater – and Rajini is determined to make sure Ramona sees things the right way before she becomes the mother of her grandchild!
THE WEDDING SARI SHOWDOWN series is a fascinating exploration of the complexity of relationships between first and second generations in the large Indian diaspora in Australia. As a cross-cultural study, this two-part observational documentary series offers rare insights into inter-generational transactions that are both specific to Ramona and Anurag’s family, and universal, even beyond the Indian community.
