Nautanki, a traditional folk musical theater from rural north India, is marked by lively dancing, pulsating drumbeats, and full-throated singing. Nautanki “Mission Suhani” follows a confident young Indian bride and her U.S.-based Indian groom, who has taken her dowry and left her in India. Against familial and societal pressure, Suhani travels to the U.S., where she catches her husband, recovers the dowry…and finds her love!
