Synopsis

"Finding the perfect son-in-law can be murder" My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Shaun of the Dead meet in this charming comedy romp about an Indian-Punjabi mother taking her obsession with marriage into frighteningly funny territory. Mrs Sethi, a widow, can't bear the thought of her only daughter being alone and unhappy. Okay, she's a little plump and opinionated…but she would make a great wife for some lucky man, if only she were given a chance. When Mrs Sethi can no longer stomach the rudeness of families who refuse her daughter, she takes matters into her own hands with the only way she knows…Suddenly a police hunt begins for a serial murderer who cooks a killer curry. Mrs Sethi doesn't feel too guilty until the spirits of her victims come back to haunt her as they are unable to be reincarnated until their murderer dies. Mrs Sethi has no problem killing herself – she'll get to see her dead husband again – but how can she go before her beloved daughter is married? The spirits realize that helping Mrs Sethi's daughter find a suitable husband before the police catch her is their only chance for a wonderful afterlife! It's a big bloody wedding and a comic feast which takes the phrase 'I could murder a curry' to hysterical new heights.
