Storyline

Burton, a young American who has stayed on in India following the end of World War Two, is engaged to marry Julia, a beautiful European girl he met in Bombay. Burton, his mother Katie and Julia arrive in Ginjim, a small village, to visit her family before Julia and Burton go to America on their honeymoon. Ginjim nestles at the foot of the great statue of "Gomateswara", which overlooks the entire countryside. Julia's family consists of her father, Putsi, a happy-go-lucky philosopher who believes that "everything works out", her older brother, Rault, a cynic; bitter because his wife left him while he was away at war; and Jeanette, Julia's younger sister. Molac, a rich man much older than Jeanette, wants to marry her. Then the rains come and Burton and Jeanette fall in love. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

"Monsoon" is Hindi for "dull"
6 October 2003 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

The movie begins without much promise but at least it's tolerable as Diana Douglas arrives by bus at a village in India along with her fiance, George Nader, and his mother, Ellen Corby. She wants to introduce them to her father, Philip Stainton, and brother, Myron Healey. Then Ursula Thiess arrives on the scene. She's supposed to be Diana's younger sister but looks nothing like her and speaks in a completely different accent. George and Ursula go for a walk and -- shazam! -- fall madly in love. They take shelter from a storm that night in an abandoned building and talk and talk and talk. It's all very dull and pretentious in the manner of a bad off-Broadway play and even George Nader taking his shirt off and walking about bare-chested can't save it.
