Trivia

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gained about 20 pounds for this film because she felt it was more suitable for her character to not look like a fashion model and to give her a more realistic appearance. See more »

Goofs

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.

very good
12 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

well what can i say i went to this movie expecting it to be really bad as i am not a big fan of the actress aishwarya rai but i was surprised . one must look at this movie from the point that it was made more like a bolly wood movie that is dramatic , has songs (as all Hindi movies are incomplete with out) and a dash of Indian culture yes the movie is based on pride and prejudice so a lot of people will go expecting it to be like the book and hence will be surprised. the whole point to having an Indian girl who is from a different culture, background,class and country fall in love with a rich ,snobbish American boy is to make it romantic almost i would say like a mills and boons romance. and this is where the movie gets a thumbs up. martin henderson as will darcy looks smashing and plays his role well . this movie is funny as well as emotional and has all the stuff required in making a good movie one must go and see this movie and expect it to be like a bollywood film and the person will not be disappointed.this is a truly different movie and is worth a watch.
