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

Bride & Prejudice
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...
