Pride and Prejudice revisited is a brilliant documentary that was made to coincide the theatrical release of Pride and Prejudice starring Kiera Knightley. It is also included on the DVD release of the film. In the segment, directors and Austen enthusiasts discuss the many popular works of Jane Austen and its impact on popular culture from all around the world, including the popular Bride and Prejudice starring Aishwarya Rai and Naveen Andrews which is a Bollywood(Indian Cinema) take on the Austen classic. Kate Winslet's 'Sense and Sensibility' as well as Aishwarya Rai's 'I have found it' (Kandukondain, Kandukondain) also earn mentions both for being adaptations of Jane Austen novels as well.
