The voiceover says, “In India, the marriage is between two families, and these families have their reputation and wealth at stake. She is seen at several weddings, providing her visiting card to parents with offspring who are ready for marriage, introducing herself as Sima Aunty. It definitely has a cute fairytale narrative to follow and is centred on rich Indians, mostly settled abroad. The show is supposed to glamorise the idea of arranged marriages to a foreign audience. However, by doing so, it casts a glittery glow over the real issues in such marriages. Right from the overwhelming role of family and lack of individual agency, to the long discussions over caste and horoscopes, the show has it all. The double standards of physical appearance for men and women and nitpicking over incomes and family backgrounds is also shown. While all of these issues are seen surfacing at various points of the show, they are never seen as problematic. Instead they are normalised and taken for granted as part of traditions that have to be roped into fixing of a marriage.
She lives with her family and their many animals in Churchville, Maryland. Born to be a tooth fairy, Cory Feathering has been busy proving there’s another life meant for her — one of matchmaking! She’s already helped Marjorie Muffet and Goldilocks find true love, and now it’s Mary Lambkin’s turn. When Cory has a vision of Mary with one particular boy, Cory knows exactly what to do.
This book explores the idiosyncratic effects generated as fairytale and gothic horror join, clash or merge in cinema.
