Bride & Prejudice
3 February 2008 | by vitachielSee all my reviews

OK Bollywood-style rendering of the famous drama. The cheesy feel of many scenes is a logical result of the forced blending of the (assumed) politically correct feel-good dogma of Hollywood and easy-going sugar sweet Bollywood fashion. There are some pretty funny (though predictable) scenes and the story is told in a fast pace, without too many endless songs. The way the makers adapted the original story of Pride & Prejudice is applaudable: accurate but with enough freedom to create a product of its own. We get a good view of the trappings of cultural prejudices in an original but sometimes corny manner. It remains a fact that the Mr. Darcy of the '90's British version of P & P is never to be surpassed...
