Dev Patel Looks Intense In The Wedding Guest

A few hours ago if you had of said to me Dev Patel is a total badass I would have laughed at you, but now I live in a post Wedding Guest world, one where Dev plays a man with a secret who travels from Britain to Pakistan to attend a wedding—armed with duct tape, a shotgun, and a plan to kidnap the bride-to-be. From what the trailer shows us emotions run hot and the plan stops running smooth, yes this one looks like a truly intense thrill ride one that will have you on the edge of your seats, one we all need to see.

This film is important for 2 reasons:

  1. The protagonist is a badass who is of British Indian decent, these are people that make up a sizeable portion of UK society yet are often shown as comedy relief or side kicks, this is a much needed change and

  2. It talks about forced marriages. Now I will say this forced and arranged marriages are two very different things and the main difference is choice. Here we see our protagonist kidnapping a women who is being forced to marry someone. To a Western mind this is a heroic act but there are others that would question that and that is why this is important.

Yes this one looks like it will be a truly unique film and I cannot wait.
