    • Synopsis
    • Anna is unlucky in love. She writes unfulfilling advertising copy for a newspaper, while dreaming of writing for a womans magazine. Her younger sister is getting married and her older brother Damo is a famous Australian rules football player. Mani is from India and is being pushed into an arranged marriage to Priya - an Indian Paris Hilton type, which he’s not happy about and his parents are due to fly in from India at any moment. When Anna and Mani are thrown together by chance, Mani uses the opportunity to get himself out of the marriage by turning Anna into his fiance. A comedy of errors ensues with the end outcome being love. ‘Marrying Mani’ is ‘My Fair Lady’ meets ‘’Bride and Prejudice’, with a little ‘Muriels Wedding’ thrown in.
