Indian wedding videographers are finding new ways to make their clients happy. They no longer stick to making crass videos of swirling images of bride and groom with a beach sunset in the background. They have come up with a new method for keeping their customers happy and that is even making them internet famous. A wedding video which is driving the internet crazy is of actress Ashwathy Warrier and Abilash Unnikrishnan dancing to Rinosh George’s ‘I’m a Mallu’.

An extreme long shot, a bride decked in gold, twirling young wedding guests and random screen presence by uncles, aunts and grannies is what is making this video the next big thing on YouTube. While the song attempts to give its over two hundred thousand viewers a lesson on what makes a Malyali, we were sold on the pretty gold decked bride and the ease with which it bursts a few myths like mallus putting coconut in every dish.

The video is a recreation of singer and composer Rinosh George’s original but is not the first to break the stereotype around wedding videos. Indian brides now want to do more than just dress pretty and look shy on their big day. Remember ‘Cheap thrills’ bride, Amisha Bhardwaj who enchanted over nine million viewers on CoolBluez Motion Pictures YouTube channel. While there were enough trolls in the comment box calling her ugly, fat and indecent, she chose to ignore them and simply keep the video as the best part of the wedding memory.
So when you are planning your wedding, do remember that that there will be a new category of cost if you want to go beyond the run of the mill wedding pictures. Spend on your wedding videographer, for his camera holds the power to make you the next big thing on the internet.
