Movie propaganda

It all begins in a modest Indian village when the determined Mrs Bakshi (Nadira Babbar) sets out to find marriage matches for her four beautiful daughters while there's a lavish wedding party in town. Right away, the smart and headstrong Lalita (Aishwarya Rai) announces she will only marry for love, giving her mother nightmares. Then Lalita meets the wealthy American Will Darcy (Martin Henderson) and sparks immediately fly. But is it love or hate? Darcy comes off to Lalita as an arrogant California snob. Lalita looks to Darcy like a small-town Indian beauty who knows nothing of the world. Alternately enchanted by and suspicious of one another, Lalita and Darcy nearly fall prey to assumptions, gossip and a comedy of errors... until pride is humbled and prejudice overcome so that love can triumph.

Theatrical report

Hee, hee, hee. Bride and prejudice is a romantic comedy that will have you rolling in the aisles. The snake dance is a hoot! All the bold beauty of Bollywood with the warm fuzziness of Hollywood. What more could you ask for?
