The very British sensibilities of Jane Austen are introduced to the exotic flavors of the Bollywood musical in this romantic comedy with songs from the director of Bend It Like Beckham, Gurinder Chadha. Lalita Bakshi (Aishwarya Rai) is the lovely and eligible daughter of her socially ambitious mother and father (Nadira Babbar and Anupam Kher). Mother and father want to be sure that Lalita, the most beautiful of their four daughters, settles down with a man worthy of her, but she has proven resistant to matchmaking, announcing that she will choose her own husband, and will choose him for love. While mother is keen on the profoundly annoying Kholi (Nitin Chandra Ganatra), Lalita has had her head turned by a handsome vagabond from England, Johnny Wickham (Daniel Gilles). But while attending the wedding of a friend, Lalita meets Will Darcy (Martin Henderson), a college buddy of family friend Raj (Naveen Andrews) who is the son of a wealthy hotel magnate. Lalita finds that Will makes a strong impression on her -- she can't stand him, but she also can't get him out of her mind. Will feels the same way about her, and as they inadvertently chase one another over three continents, will morbid fascination grow into true love? Bride and Prejudice marked the first English-speaking role for Aishwarya Rai, who had firmly established herself as India's leading female star when this film was made.

bollywood truly knows how to create a fun movie ! sad we cannot find more of these on DVD here in the US. Bride & Prejudice is a great version of Pride & Prejudice, Jane Austin would approve. the dancing, singing, color, acting are all wonderful. come on Hollywood step it up ! create movies like this one and others from bollywood. NO sex, no violence, no drugs, no drunk characters, no nudity, no vulgarity. this movie is safe for all !! the lead actress Aishwarya Rai is WOW.
This is a great Bollywood film, and a decent adaptation of Austen's work. However, if you're not familiar with the Bollywood genre, the random singing and dancing and odd expositions might seem a little bizarre. All in all, a great movie to watch with the girls!
This film is one of the most enjoyable things I have ever seen. It is fun and romantic. It is an whole new spin on Jane Austin with the dream-land romace that we all want and the craziness of real-life problems such as family and pressure to be what everyone else wants you to be. Buy this film if you like fun movies that make you laugh and cry!
This movie is a bright colourful adaption to an Austin classic. I very much enjoyed the song and dance numbers throughout the film. I highly recommend this movie to any one looking for something fresh.
This was my first Bollywood film and I loved it! Fun and different and tame enough that you can watch it with the kids. A nice take on the Jane Austen classic, which is one of my favorites. I highly recommend this for anyone wanting a fun, entertaining movie!
This is a very delightful and fantastic gem, and I enjoyed it immensely. The songs were amazing, the costumes were vibrant, the cinematography was absoulute stunning, and the performances were top-notch. Aishwarya Rai is devastingly beautiful.
I loved this movie. I have been searching everywhere to buy a copy of it.
this is one of my favorite movies and it's hilarious and romantic. i love musicals, jane austen stories, and romance, so it's everything i love in one.
This was my first "Bollywood" movie and I have been smitten ever since. A wonderful coupling of a great classic with vibrant colors and such great music! I can not wait to enjoy many more great movies like this one.
Cute, fun and definitely lively! Some of the musical numbers are a little over the top, but if you're a fan of Bollywood movies you will enjoy this very much.
