Quotes

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

very good
12 October 2004 | by filmbuff9See 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.
