Ali’s Wedding (Movie review)

You need to know that Ali’s Wedding, is a warmhearted rom-com about a young man whose life is changed forever when he tells a lie. “Based on a true story,” the tale is set in today’s Australia among a Muslim community whose members have immigrated from various countries in the Middle East. It presents a humorous and very positive look at a religious culture undergoing dramatic shifts while holding fast to some of its most valued traditions. It’s a love story, for sure, but almost as much a love story about fathers and their children as it is about the young couple who fall in love. Occasional insults are heard, such as “f–k,” “s–t,” and “goddamn,”. An ethnic slur, “godless Arab donkey,” is used as well. Expect some kissing, and a sexual banter. I would like to recommend you this movie to watch with full concentration.
