Bride & Prejudice

I just finished watching the movie Bride & Prejudice, directed by Gurinder Chadha, the same director behind Bend It Like Beckham.

The movie is inspired by the Jane Austen novel “Pride & Prejudice”, only it’s done in bollywood style.
Yep, it’s just like those Indian movies, with all the singing and dancing and everything, just done in English. It’s totally a Hollywood meets Bollywood movie.

It turned out pretty nice actually, quite an enjoyable couple of hours.
What I liked the most is the mix between hollywood and bollywood cinema styles.
I also love how the director presents India and its people, it totally makes you feel like picking yourself up and going to India right away.
Another great thing is how she handles the issues she’s tackling in this movie and presents them.
I wish Arab directors would learn from her (from both of her movies) and start doing similar things in Hollywood. Anyway that brings me to another post I’ll be writing soon about Arabs, Muslims and Hollywood.

My score for this movie is: 7/10
