A marriage is a huge celebration in India and a second marriage is regarded taboo! But the times are changing and thoughts are developing. Based on one such concept is the film ‘Second Marriage Dot Com’.
Producer Vinod Mehta of Vin Mehta Films says, “When a young, dynamic director like Gaurav approached me and narrated the story I promptly said yes because the concept of ‘Second Marriage Dot Com’ is unique. And it suggests that second marriages are not a problem but a solution to all our problems that loneliness brings.
This film does not have big stars but I believe that a film is appreciated not by stars but by the concept it voices!” The story begins when Akshay, a young IT Professional of Delhi embarks on a journey to find his widower father, Suneel Narang, a perfect match and put an end to his loneliness. The story progresses as the apt match is found in a divorcee mother, Shoma, via a matrimony site ‘Second marriage.com’. The efforts put in by Akshay, Suneel’s son and Poonam, Shoma’s daughter to bring their parents close pay off when the two tie the knot. It does look like the dawn of happiness when a spine-chilling twist is added to the story.
Poonam and Akshay speak their soul out to each other and gradually fall for each other. The story is based on much researched facts; it challenges the society norms and brings out the best of drama, comedy, romance, guilt and all human emotions.
Talking about the film, the documentary filmmaker Gaurav Panjwani, who makes a debut in mainstream cinema with this film, says, “India has always been progressive in nature but talking about the second marriage especially in metro cities was considered to be taboo.
