"Bride and Prejudice" is a spectacular Bollywood-style movie adaptation of Jane Austen's romance classic, "Pride and Prejudice." Directed by Gurinder Chadha of "Bend It Like Beckham" fame, this movie is a reinvented Indian revival of the famous literary classic for our globally-connected world with transcending cultural frontiers. There are transparent clashes of inherent culture-inspired prejudice and perceptions among the major characters. There is disarming humor amidst generous sprinkling of often stubborn yet gradually changing attitudes. The singing, lots of spontaneous and rapturous dancing with wild abandon, and dazzling colors and visual textures in the narrow streets of Amritsar may catch Western audience by surprise.

While I leave it to the critics about the characters, interpretation, direction, and whether the movie meets Hollywood standards, for many this movie may offer a window to the zestful Punjabi culture. This multi-cultural musical postcard reintroduces the ever-fascinating world of Austen romance to today's global audiences. Move over "Monsoon Wedding," "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," here come Ashwaryia Rai, the stunning bride with an attitude, with a bazaarful of wild turbanwallas and gorgeous beauties decked in riots of colorful cultural brocades to offer you a soulful exuberance and contagious spirit for a few brief moments......."Bride and Prejudice"
