Aishwarya Rai Bachchan,
A Bollywood-style 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.Written by

When Lalita's mother asks Balraj to find Lalita 'a nice Indian husband' right in front of Darcy, Lalita and Darcy exchange lengthy dismayed looks as they realise that Lalita's parents don't view Darcy as a potential marriage match. Yet in the next scene, her parents smile and laugh and openly signal permission when Darcy looks to them for permission to embrace Lalita. Their sudden total change of heart is never explained.

Darcy's a great reader.
In fact, I think a love of books is on his list for his ideal woman.
I think you've had one too many Sea Breezes.
I remember a very drunken night in Oxford when you recited the list. She has to be smart, speak several languages...
Allright Kiran, drop it.
No I recall she had to be athletic, voluptuous of course, graceful, witty, confident...
I'm not surprised Darcy found a woman with a list like that. Does this mean you're an ideal man?
I'd guess you'd be a better judge ...

Vibrant, colorful, hilarious and lively, this movie was a sheer joy to watch. A refreshing take on an old classic. But be warned, this movie will not appeal to everybody - especially those who don't go to watch it with an open mind. Aishwarya Rai looks the best she ever has and turns in a confident performance in her first English speaking role - not always an easy transition. Martin Henderson is handsome and charming and the supporting cast too. But Nitin Ganatra as the comic bride seeking American is the show stealer in his over the top performance as Mr.Kohli. Gurinder Chadha has attempted what few would dare to take on and she's pulled it off. It's a comic tale of love and romance. Thoroughly enjoyable!
