I have just come home from the BEST night out for a long time! In fact, even I was surprised as we came out of the theatre (after watching the 5:30 showing) that my husband had been so taken by the film we had just watched. It was only the fifth film we had seen together this year (and the second...

Hi everyone - hope you are all coping in the heat! Sticking with that theme, I have just watched a 'sizzling' film. I decided to treat myself to the DVD of 'Bride and Prejudice, which was on special offer at Somerfield for £3.99. This film is directed by Gurinder Chadha, who also directed 'Bend...

ConsMaking Mr Darcy an American

I had to analyse this film and compared it to the book for the speech and ideolect for one of my assignments. I bought the DVD for £5 off amazon.co.uk which turned out to be an ex rental copy which was annoying because you can fast forward the ads on it. I normally don't like musicals but this...

ConsWeak plotline, wooden acting, too many songs.

This is a modern day adaptation of the Jane Austen classic 'Pride and Prejudice'. I can not possibly comment on how it compares to the original as I have not read it or seen the adaptation of the original, but I can certainly share my thoughts and experiences of it. The film is directed by...

I love Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice.’ I’ve read the book numerous times, and I’m addicted to the BBC/A&E version with Colin Firth. Two years ago, when I was studying the novel in English class, my teacher told us that the director of “Bend it like Beckham” was planning on doing an Indian...

Bollywood bonanza. This film reminded me so much of the wonderful musicals we used to see, West Side Story, My Fair Lady and the like. My husbands face when they started singing in the street was a picture! Half way into the film the fire alarms went off in the Cinema and I found myself, with...

ConsMaybe too cheesey for some people's liking

This is a modernised bollywood style version of Jane Austin's classic novel ''Pride and Predjudice.'' It begins in the home of a typical indian family whose mother (Nadira Babbar) is desperate to see her two eldest daughters Lalita Bakshi (Aishwaryi Rai) and Jaki Bakshi (Namarata Shirodkr) get...

Prolight movie for ash fans

Consshallow characters and not a good adaptation

I am not a very die hard fan of bollywood. there are various reasons behind it and one of them is that they are not quite original about their movies. Most of the movies made now a days are either direct copies of hollywood or a distorted version of it entitled as adaptation or inspiration. Rest...

ProPretty Colours, sexy people and lots of laughs

ConsThats just about it

I am an Indian and I really looked forward to this film that seemed like it was going to merge genres and do well to introduce the brilliant acting of Rai to the western world! After watching the film I would have to say yes it is colourful and funny. However its neither here nor there it follows...

ConsCould be a little bit OTT at times.

At first I wasnt too sure about this movie, the first 15mins or so seemed a bit over the top kind of like a musical! Once we got over the sudden outbursts of song the film became very enjoyable. The storyline was interesting and was a "feel good movie". Lots of bright colours and beautiful scenes...
