Oops, Wrong Spouse

Only in India will you see a headline like this:

Power cut at mass wedding causes mix-up of brides

Luckily, the power came back before any of the mistakes could be consummated. I see a Priyadarshan film in this, with a mix-up at the start of the film that doesn’t get corrected, and the couples involved gradually falling in love with their accidental spouses. Immense depravity, no, this kind of Bollywood thinking?

Update: Hari informs me via email that a 1992 Mallu film named Grihapravesham had just that plot. That means reality plagiarized.
