A much-in-love young couple, Shahana(Angira Dhar) and Pawan(Ali Fazal) decide to get hitched and plan a destination wedding for themselves. They invite their respective parents to give their blessings to them and when their families do arrive, chaos begins and sparks fly in all the wrong directions. Bang Baaja Baraat is a refreshing take on the big fat Indian wedding and the chaos that ensue when two individuals with a diverse upbringing decide to get hitched, much to their parents’ dismay. Confusion, ladai-jhagda , and family drama later they all show up at the holy pyre for the matrimonial ceremony, which the pandit ji agrees to conduct even though they kept him and the mahoorat waiting for the longest time. But right before the pheras , the couple gets up, swears at each other and goes their separate ways.

Hilarious plot twists and great performances by popular faces from the theatre and film fraternity. Bang Baaja Baaraat is a remarkably realistic series, backed by cool and witty writing, hilarious plot twists, and great performances by the actors involved. It talks the contemporary talk, and touches subjects that, in an ideal commercial filmy world, none do. Including pre marital sex and pregnancy, ageism, gender equality, the whole point of marriage, love and friendship, and some such but in the wittiest, most practical way ever. The series has been treated no less than a mainstream feature film in terms of its look and feel.

A great, no-brainer romantic comedy for your late night binge-watching sessions!
