Ritu is sophisticated and well-educated, with a successful career in Mumbai, but she agrees to marry under pressure from her mother Seema. Amrita enjoys a freewheeling lifestyle in Delhi but consents to wed—in spite of the fact that the match will force her to move to a remote area—because her intended will allow her to continue to work outside the home. Thirty-year-old Dipti, on the other hand, is desperate to find a husband, working with her parents to locate a plausible candidate through all available means—scouring newspaper advertisements and attending events where men present themselves for interviews. After numerous failed attempts leave her in a state of virtual depression, she does succeed.\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cem\u003eA Suitable Girl\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/em\u003edetails the peculiarities involved in selecting a mate—including the comparison of horoscopes to assess compatibility—and emphasizes the fact that financial considerations factor heavily in negotiations (all three women come from reasonably well-to-do families). But the overall emphasis here is on the human costs that traditional marriages continue to have on Indian women, since most will assume a subservient place in the husband’s family, losing whatever freedom they had previously enjoyed. So despite the festive appearance of the wedding scenes at the close, all carry a somber undertone. An insightful portrait of a persistent custom in Indian culture, this is recommended.\" \u003cem\u003e- Aud: C, P. (F.

Ritu is sophisticated and well-educated, with a successful career in Mumbai, but she agrees to marry under pressure from her mother Seema. Amrita enjoys a freewheeling lifestyle in Delhi but consents to wed—in spite of the fact that the match will force her to move to a remote area—because her intended will allow her to continue to work outside the home. Thirty-year-old Dipti, on the other hand, is desperate to find a husband, working with her parents to locate a plausible candidate through all available means—scouring newspaper advertisements and attending events where men present themselves for interviews. After numerous failed attempts leave her in a state of virtual depression, she does succeed.\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cem\u003eA Suitable Girl\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/em\u003edetails the peculiarities involved in selecting a mate—including the comparison of horoscopes to assess compatibility—and emphasizes the fact that financial considerations factor heavily in negotiations (all three women come from reasonably well-to-do families). But the overall emphasis here is on the human costs that traditional marriages continue to have on Indian women, since most will assume a subservient place in the husband’s family, losing whatever freedom they had previously enjoyed. So despite the festive appearance of the wedding scenes at the close, all carry a somber undertone.
