Vivah Samskara is a documentary film about the folk songs that are sung by women during the Bhojpuri wedding rites. It is a ceremony-wise musical annotation of a typical Bhojpuri wedding that is spread over 5 days. The documentary contains a first hand description of Bhojpuri wedding rites from the vantage point of a Brahmin family residing in Bhadwar village of Bihar.  The film is a part of a project on preservation of the Bhojpuri folk music.

The film was screened at an international seminar on Indian Feminism in September 2014 at Ghazipur, Uttar Pradesh.
