Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This delightful Jane Austen adaptation, a product of “Bollywood” Bombay’s filmmaking colony, bears the unmistakable earmarks of Indian-made movies despite its nod to literary conventions. Set in the present day, it’s an audaciously conceived takeoff on Pride and Prejudice, brimming with the eye-popping musical numbers that distinguish Bollywood films. Rich young American hotelier Will Darcy Martin Henderson visits India with his old friend Balraj The English Patient’s Naveen Andrews to attend a wedding. Also attending is the socially ambitious Mrs. Bakshi Nadira Babbar, who hopes to find prospective suitors for her four daughters. The strategy works, at least in part: Balraj falls for eldest daughter Jaya Namarata Shirodkar, and Darcy seems attracted to younger sister Lalita Aishwarya Rai. But he antagonizes her with tactless remarks and his preoccupation with business, making it unlikely that a relationship will blossom. In the best Bollywood tradition, characters burst into song and dance at the slightest provocation; hordes of extras suddenly appear to form impromptu chorus lines, and colorful settings automatically become staging grounds for elaborately choreographed production numbers that would do Busby Berkeley proud. The irresistible Ms. Rai, a former Miss World and the reigning queen of Bollywood, really stands out from the large, talented cast with her dynamic performances in these sequences. She’s an effervescent screen presence, bubbling over with an infectious energy that perfectly complements the high-spirited tone director Gurinder Chadha Bend It like Beckham brings to this ingenious Austen update.
All Movie Guide
Although it made less than a fifth as much at the U.S. box office, Gurinder Chadha's follow-up to Bend It Like Beckham is a lot truer to the joyous Bollywood traditions that lurk in the background of her international soccer hit. Bride and Prejudice, Chadha's Indian take on the Jane Austen novel, also benefits from what should have been a crossover breakthrough for Aishwarya Rai -- voted the world's most beautiful woman by a consensus of 2005 Internet polls -- but didn't turn out to be the same career-making boost that Keira Knightley got from Beckham. Bride is quite literally light on its feet, as it serves up numerous breathtaking Indian song-and-dance numbers, deliriously choreographed in a rainbow of colors. The weaker Broadway-influenced numbers are more abrupt, but they still contribute to Chadha's commendable balance between intimate character development and large-scale production design. Chadha also tones down the "talkative ethnic mother humor" that undermined Beckham, lending a greater respect and believability to the Bakshi family, whose elders are torn between landing rich husbands for their daughters (the mother) and letting them follow their bliss (the father). Rai does an excellent job fashioning a modern feminist role model who refuses to play her ascribed cultural role, yet still shows exceptional fondness for her roots. Opposite her as Darcy, Martin Henderson deserves kudos for the soft-spoken dignity that gradually redeems his initial tactlessness. Chadha's chaste approach to the material -- the characters never even kiss -- prevents certain scenes from reaching full catharsis. And a fistfight that takes place in a movie theater, echoing the fisticuffs taking place onscreen, is pretty clichéd. But these are minor grievances in an otherwise unqualified success.
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwartzbaum
Under the direction of Bend It Like Beckham's Gurinder Chadha, this festively busy and exuberantly multicultural charmer is its own intriguingly postmodern creation.
Chicago Tribune - Michael Wilmington
It's "knowingly" off-the-rails--and if you're in a tolerant or adventurous mood, very entertaining.

Under the direction of Bend It Like Beckham's Gurinder Chadha, this festively busy and exuberantly multicultural charmer is its own intriguingly postmodern creation.

    wonderfully colorful !

    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.

    Not so great...

    I was hoping from the description and reviews that this would at least be an enjoyable watch that perhaps I'd want to see again some day. Sadly very much /not/ the case. I was not impressed. it was a decent cast and alright writing... Seemed more of a poor rip off of a classic then anything else.

    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.

    Don't call it a Bollywood film

    Although popular Hindi films are musicals and just a few can be on the cheesy side, this does not do justice to the Bollywood film industry for a second. And I am amazed that Gurinder Chadha could make something like this after her far superior smash hit, "Bend it Like Beckham" which I strongly recommend. This movie should be titled "Sellout" because unfortunately that is what Aishwarya did in this movie. I love her, been a fan for years too, but she should've politely said no to this along with "Mistress of Spices." It can be humourous to watch with a slew of sarcastic friends, but I wouldn't recommend making this a date movie. It could get uncomfortable. I did however love the opening song at the engagement party and I was happy that Chadha tried to make a place for all ethnic groups in this movie, but the number with pop singer Ashanti is what made my friends and I gasp with disbelief and horror. Its like a teenage movie...only with grown adults acting out the parts. Yeah, its kind've sad. Though it was two thumbs down for me, but I say see it just so that you could say you did.

    Absolutely ingenious

    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.

    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!

    I LOVED IT!

    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!

    Austen Meets Bollywood

    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!
