Bride and Prejudice (2004)

Bride and Prejudice (2004)

Swapping corsets for saris, and polite pianoforte for the bhangra beat, director Gurinder Chadha reinvigorates Jane Austen's Pride And Prejudice with fun and flamboyance. Starring Aishwarya Rai and Martin Henderson, Bride & Prejudice marries a quintessentially English romance with classic Bollywood bombast - different in style yet both trading in the discord of love across borders. What Chadha loses in the sly subtext that made Austen's novel so compelling, she makes up for with wit and mischief.
