A sumptuous and rollicking musical comedy update of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The film comes from the same bright spirits that bought us “Bend It Like Beckham.”
An exotic English-language entertainment, it’s an a world spanning film, ranging from India to London to Beverly Hills and back while revamping the Austen characters among affluent Indians. The Bollywood influence is vividly reflected in the production numbers staged by Saroj Khan. With the goddessy Aishwarya Rai as the heroine, called Lalita, and Martin Henderson as her Darcy.
