All Things Austen: Bollywood Style

14 Mar

There have been many sequels and movies made of Jane Austen’s Pride And Prejudice. But  I think one of the most fun is the movie Bride and Prejudice — a Bollywood version filled with dancing, singing and the occasional elephant.  Set in India, England and the United States, this film is fun to watch.  Last year, the women’s group at my church featured the movie for an International Dinner And A Movie Night.  So call up the girl friends, grab the snacks and settle in for a laughter filled girls night.  Not to be missed is Maya/Mary’s snake dance performance. And if you think Mr. Collins is ridiculous, get ready for Mr. Kohli!  (Bride And Prejudice is rated PG 13 for some sexual references,)

A Bollywood update of Jane Austen’s classic tale, in which Mrs. Bakshi is eager to find suitable husbands for her four unmarried daughters. When the rich single gentlemen Balraj and Darcy come to visit, the Bakshis have high hopes, though circumstance and boorish opinions threaten to get in the way of romance.

    I watched this years ago and was simultaneously amused and curious!
