    A great film. Absorbing human drama, poignant and moving. First class production, directing, casting, writing, acting, and photography.

    I walked into this movie without knowing a thing about it. I was pleasantly surprised. This was a thoroughly engrossing movie with excellent acting. I must warn you though...bring your kleenex with you.

    I just returned from seeing "After The Wedding". I thought the acting and the cinematography were excellent. Although many events were predictable, the film is well worth seeing. The scenes in India make you really see the beauty and the poverty in India. I thought the acting was incredible, especially by the main characters. I give it four stars.
