FYI TV 18 takes a race against time and tradition with ‘Indian Wedding Race’
It’s not uncommon to find a partner online and certainly no trouble to find a date in an instant on dating apps. But have you ever thought about the match of social media and the age-old tradition of arranged unions? The two, it seems, make a perfect marriage – and especially if you have a pressing deadline. Indian Wedding Race premiering on, 31st October 2018,every Wednesday at 9 pm, traces two families as they navigate the mating maze in their quest to find a husband or wife for their children.
Indian Wedding Race invites you to meet Dalvinder and Tarun – two 29-year-olds who must balance the wishes of their traditional Indian parents with their own desire for a love-marriage. But if they don’t get married by 30, they fear that they will be seen as damaged goods and bring shame to their families. Each embark on a franticly amusing adventure to find love and get married, while juggling the pressures from their very traditional parents and cultural expectations. The journey takes them through the popular online dating world, to astrologers, matchmakers and even down the path of arranged marriage.
Capturing every step of the way on this emotional rollercoaster, the show is a rare and up close look at the world of Australia’s Indian community as it intimately explores with humour and warmth the pressures and vulnerability that these young people face.
Indian Wedding Race follows the trials and tribulations of these two young Indian-Australians in their search for love. There’s sure to be broken hearts and high-drama as each navigates their own path to their dream ‘big, fat Indian wedding’.
Get ready for the ‘Big Fat Indian Wedding’, with FYI TV18‘s Indian Wedding Race, every Wednesday at 9 PM.
