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

This plot, recycled from Austen, is the clothesline for a series of dance numbers that, like Hong Kong action sequences, are set in unlikely locations and use props found there; how else to explain the sequence set in, yes, a Mexican restaurant?

Lightweight but utterly beguiling.

New York Daily News
Good, clean fun, and the view is fabulous.

Chicago Tribune
It's "knowingly" off-the-rails--and if you're in a tolerant or adventurous mood, very entertaining.

ReelViews
Bright, colorful, and exhilarating.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
It's the small, smelly details that elevate this Indian-fusion retelling of Jane Austen's classic novel from trifle to bona-fide delight.

The Hollywood Reporter
Like an Elvis Presley musical from the '60s, filled with shiny bright colors, bouncy music and happy, smiling, pretty people.

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.

Philadelphia Inquirer
The film is uniquely spirited, radiating the exuberance and sexual heat of an Elvis musical, a characteristic shared by its songs and dances.
50
Lacks even mild drama.
