  • Summary: From the team behind international smash hit "Bend It Like Beckham," comes a Jane Austen adaptation like never before. "Pride and Prejudice" gets the Bollywood treatment, and the result is a spectacular fusion of East meets West. Austen's classic love story unfolds in a riot of colour and emotion, song and dance that jet-sets from rural India via London to Los Angeles. (Pathe Pictures) Expand

  1. Under the direction of "Bend It Like Beckham's" Gurinder Chadha, this festively busy and exuberantly multicultural charmer is its own intriguingly postmodern creation.
  2. Good, clean fun, and the view is fabulous.
  3. Aside from the singing and dancing, it is the color and pageantry of India as filtered through the work of cinematographer Santosh Sivan that captivates us.
  4. Reviewed by: Claudia Puig
    A Hollywood take on a Bollywood movie. But the Bollywood portions - echoing over-the-top Indian movie musicals - are far more entertaining than the Hollywood segments.
  5. Reviewed by: Glenn Kenny
    It’s very colorful, for sure, but the dialogue is lead-footed at best.
  6. 50
    Money can't buy happiness, but as Bride and Prejudice teaches us, it can get patience in bulk from a smart young woman of a practical mind-set.
  7. As high concept and rife with cliché as anything ever churned out by Hollywood, but with worse production values and a load of sanctimonious political correctness.
