Bride and Prejudice is very much like an Indian movie. It is definitely more Bollywood than Austen. Given the Bollywood nature of the movie, we had an odd perception issue: We didn’t expect English from Ashwarya Rai et al, so it was not only odd hearing it but also difficult to understand at first.
The movie had a number of formulaic plot twists which could be anticipated miles in advance. There was also some monologues with Ashwarya Rai’s character lecturing about India and so on.
Overall, Bride and Prejudice deserved a rating of 5/10, but both Amber and I agree that Ashwarya Rai’s good looks should count for something and that bumps my rating to 6/10.
