Product Description

A clash of cultures in the spirit of MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING, this modern musical retelling of Jane Austen's classic PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is a hilariously entertaining tale of one girl's unlikely search for love! Sparks immediately fly as a love/hate relationship ignites between a small-town beauty (international star Aishwarya Rai) and a wealthy American (Martin Henderson -- THE RING, TORQUE) who's visiting her modest Indian village. In a swirl of music, dance, and comic misunderstandings, these opposites continue to attract and repel each other in a riotous romance that spans three continents! Featuring Naveen Andrews (TV's LOST, THE ENGLISH PATIENT) and a memorable performance from top recording artist Ashanti -- love will eventually conquer all in this acclaimed treat from the director of BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM!

I wasn't sure I wanted to watch this film at first. Both the title and the DVD box image are rather cheesy - but then I saw the trailer, and it convinced me that this would indeed be something worth watching. Thank goodness for that trailer because I absolutely adored this movie. Bride and Prejudice introduced me to a whole new world of cinematic magic. It's an explosion of vibrant colors, exotic settings, incredible music and dancing, and genuine pleasure. The story itself, combining romance, drama, as well as comedy, was also a treat in its own right. If you haven't guessed by the title, this film was inspired by Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice - and I hope Austen enthusiasts will give this film a try, despite whatever misgivings they must surely have about it. I prefer to judge the film on its own merits, and I can't find anything not to like here. It's just exquisite.

The film is primarily set in India. Will Darcy (Martin Henderson) has come with his friend Balraj (Lost's Naveen Andrews) to attend a wedding - and what a wedding it is. The whole town is in full celebration mode, and the song and dance numbers that come spinning at you in kaleidoscope fashion entrance you with their beauty and grace. Darcy is immediately taken with a gorgeous young lady named Lalita Bakshi (Aishwarya Rai), who just happens to be the sister of Balraj's object of affection. She comes from a family full of girls and a mother working tirelessly to find husbands for her older daughters - hopefully rich ones. Darcy and Lalita, despite a lot of meaningful eye contact, don't exactly hit it off, but that's largely Darcy's fault. Henderson really isn't very charismatic in the role, and he's not all that eloquent either.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bollywood Lite Nov. 3 2006
By Dave_42 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
If you are looking to get a feel for what a Bollywood movie might be like, this will give you a taste, while still being grounded in the more familiar English and American styles. Filmed mostly in England, there were exterior scenes filmed in India and the United States as well. "Bride & Prejudice" was first released in the United Arab Emirates on October 6th of 2004, which was shortly followed by its release in India, the United Kingdom and France on October 8th. One interesting fact mentioned in the commentary, is that it was the number one film in both India and the United Kingdom when it opened, which no other film has ever done. The film was not released in the United States until February 11th of 2005.

As one might easily guess, this is an adaptation of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice", adding in the Bollywood musical numbers, and updating the story to be about a wealthy American, William Darcy (Martin Henderson), and a poor Indian woman, Lalita Bakshi (Aishwarya Rai), who is one of four daughters that her mother is trying to marry off. This movie is at times hilariously funny, and at other times cheesily romantic. The movie was directed by Gurinder Chadha, who also directed "Bend It like Beckham" (2002).

The best moments of the movie for me were the songs "Marriage Song", and "No Life without Wife", and the hilarious snake dance scene. The weaknesses were in some of the acting, in particular for the role of William Darcy. I am not very familiar with Martin Henderson, so I am not sure if the problem was acting or direction, but I thought the performance was very wooden overall. I think the movie also suffered from being based on a fairly long book, so they had to cut it down a lot, especially to fit in the long elaborate musical numbers.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is what it is.... Feb. 3 2006
By Annie
Format:DVD
When I first saw this movie I didn't like it at all, it wasn't true to Jane Austin's amazing novel. After seeing this a couple of times though, it has begun to grow on me and I began to understand something: this movie isn't meant to be word for word Pride and Prejudice (if that's what you are interested in, I strongly recommend the A&E version). This movie is supposed to be an interpretation of the great novel, an interpretaion targeted at the audience of Bollywood films. If anyone has seen a Bollywood movie they'll understand that these movies are packed with EVERYTHING: music, comedy, action, romance, etc. so although this movie does come across as a bit cheeesy because of these elements, it certainly hit the target with its intended audience. And personally, once I compared it to other Bollywood movies (instead of the almost unattainable standards of the novel) I saw this movie for the gem it is.

2.0 out of 5 stars A reviewer from Canada July 29 2005
Format:DVD
There are some really great, memorable song/dance numbers in this movie but, ultimately, it fails as a worthy adaption of its mentor: Jane Austen's novel, Pride And Prejudice. The premise is great- instead of a class struggle, the tension between Elizabeth and Darcy is now due to cultural misunderstandings/barriers. Unfortunately, the character of Elizabeth Bennet comes across as someone who is out to completely- and, perhaps, intentionally? -misinterpret everything that Darcy says. It is difficult, therefore, to understand his attraction. Their exchanges create the impression that she is being almost absurdly judgemental and close minded toward him. Perhaps such harshness on her part could be excused if Darcy himself were played with having more prejudice. In this adaptation, however, Darcy comes across as being an overall "nice guy". His greatest flaw does not seem to stem from his pride but from the fact that he is besotted with someone who is apparently obsessed with misconstrueing everything that he says or does. Needless to say, it is not a match made among equals. The viewer, as a result, is given the feeling that "pride and prejudice" is not the real problem with these two getting together so much as it is a case of poorly scripted dialogue. As a result, the relationship between the two characters is not as convincing as it should be. I definately see some serious marriage counselling in their so-called "happpily-ever-after" future.
Bottom line: I really did want to like this movie- and, despite its cheesiness, it does work on some levels. But not enough to keep this viewer from feeling a keen sense of dissapointment at the shabby rendition of two such beloved characters.
